Professional English/Chinese Translator

Canada - Last active: 08/02/2014 - Tests: 3

Over the last seven years, I have been involved with a range of companies and websites performing various types of translations. My core competency lies in both written and verbal Chinese to English, and English to Chinese translation. I attended Brock University to attain my Masters in Education, which has greatly helped acquire numerous unique writing and verbal translation opportunities. My experience has also brought me into contact with natively fluent Russian, Japanese, and French translators. I am open to discussing reasonable time arrangements involving those peers to complete assignments. This means that it is possible to take verbal or written Russian, Japanese, and French, and have it accurately translated into native Chinese.
