"By far one of the best online experiences I've ever had. A consummate professional and highly recommended." "Ivy provides accurate, fast and high-quality translations. Unlike other translators, she puts in the time and effort to thoroughly understand the source material before beginning." "My colleague in China who proofreads Ivy's translations says she does so with great pleasure as the work is excellent!" "She cared as if she was part of the team, not just a contractor doing a task." I am a professional Chinese translator with six years of full-time experience. I move each year between the US and China, and this unique position living and working in both cultures allows me to create especially accurate, localized and contemporary translations. The above testimonials (from my oDesk and Elance profiles) prove that I deliver high-quality translations that make an immediate impact on your global ventures, increasing your profits and making you look good -- in English and Chinese! LANGUAGE PAIRS: • English to Simplified Chinese • English to Traditional Chinese • Simplified Chinese to English • Traditional Chinese to English I am a native Simplified Chinese speaker from Shandong province, China, where we speak and write a very standard Mandarin similar to that spoken in Beijing. I have studied and written Traditional Chinese for Taiwan since I was young and am highly competent in this language as well; however, as it is not my native language, I ALWAYS provide an independent review of my work by a native Traditional Chinese colleague. I have studied English since I began school, and I taught the language for many years at a private school in China. I now live half the year in the US and half in China, and I read, write and speak English for a US market. However, as English is not my native language, I ALWAYS provide an independent review of my translations into English by a professional English copyeditor to ensure accuracy and a natural translation. SERVICES: • Document Translation • App, Game and Website Localization • Editing • Proofreading • Transcription • Copywriting (Chinese only) I provide professional translations between Chinese and English. I also offer proofreading and editing services, and I am happy to review and critique previous translations into Simplified Chinese. Every document that I translate or software that I localize will be proofread with meticulous detail to ensure the utmost accuracy and quality, and I will firmly calibrate your text for the particular field, tone and target audience. I also contract with a professional translator colleague to provide an independent review of EVERY text that I translate. This independent proofreading is completely free of charge to you; it's at my expense to ensure that I provide the most accurate and highest-quality translation possible! SPECIALIZATIONS: • Marketing Materials • Websites • Education • Travel and Tourism • Business • App and Game Localizations I have solid experience translating everything from technical user manuals to legal contracts to social dating websites. While I am quite capable of working in a variety of fields, over the years I have specialized in the above. I invite you to check out my portfolio on oDesk or on Elance (http://Ivy_Feng.elance.com/) for several Chinese translation samples. I also have multiple references and additional samples available on request. For more glowing reviews from past satisfied clients, please see my testimonials page further down, or on Elance, where I have even more experience (https://www.elance.com/s/ivy_feng/job-history/?t=1&s=rating&o=desc). GUARANTEE: Working with strangers online is a bit of a leap of faith, and even more so when it involves a foreign language! But it doesn't have to be. If you're not totally happy with my delivered translation, I'll happily make UNLIMITED revisions until you are COMPLETELY satisfied -- no hassles! I look forward to hearing from you!
