Chinese - English Translator

Chinese - English Translation
– Present (7 years 9 months)Beijing

Top-shelf translation of Chinese books, articles, speeches, and other documents into quality English worthy of publication. In 2012, I served as lead translator for a ~ $100,000 translation project for a major financial institution.

I'm actually really, really good at translation, but it's a very small part of my business; I work on a highly select basis and generally charge a premium above the market.

Currently interested in translating contemporary Chinese literature / non-fiction.

Referrals available on request.


Please note:

I do not do proofreading, editing, polishing, or correcting of other people's translations.

For written translation, I work only from Chinese into English; as a conference interpreter, however, I work both in both directions (C to E, E to C).
