Xingyu Chen

Expert Mandarin/Chinese Translator/Tutor

Norcross, United States



What's the difference

Over the past 5 years, I have translated a wide variety of English academic articles, papers and magazines into Chinese while working for Tongji University and Shenzhen Metro. I have also tutored 3 foreign students Chinese from ground zero and each one of them passed their Chinese language test. Chinese(Mandarin) is my native language and I have excellent written and verbal skills in English. I believes translation should be approached from a cultural perspective.
