    Being a freelancer is not always, in my reality-based opininon, unqualified to do some works. On the contrary, sometimes a freelancer could give you a unique, surprising, shock and attractive result experience of a project. As an interpreter and translator, I always have a faith that interpreting and translating is an art to change the word's form, from one to another language by maintaining the original taste of the origin language. Moreover, the main priority of these activities is to produce a translation that could gain the people’s highest comprehension by observing the targeted language development. It requires skills and creativities for the translator/interpreter itself. With the ability, skill and 4 years eperience in this field, I would be glad to offer my services to anyone who need by providing a high quality result to reach a mutual benefits.  less
