“This is the sixth job Cheng has done for me. Previously she has done English to Chinese translations for over a hundred web pages which has been flawless and delivered before the deadline.

Of the thousands of "good" Odesk workers and dozens I have worked with, I feel Cheng Lin is one of the very best.”
