An avid linguist and explorer of languages & cultures of the East and the West, I am always seeking opportunities to bridge communication gaps for people with diverse backgrounds.

I consider myself as a highly reliable, honest, conscientious professional. I am aiming for long-term client relationships where both parties develop mutual understanding and trust. I research terms carefully and effectively communicate with clients to make sure no ambiguities existing in the source text. I always do my best to ensure that the meaning, style, register and tone of the source language are accurately and naturally conveyed. And I always proofread my work carefully to ensure the highest quality.

I’m always happy to preview any files and give you an honest opinion about whether I am the right person to complete the task. Rates are negotiable. Send me an e-mail and I’ll reply to you as soon as I can. I am always willing to go the extra mile to get the work done within the deadline. Looking forward to working with you soon! Thank you!
