Technical Translation (English - Chinese)

I started to be a translator since 1993, when I finished the translation of 3 books (more than 400,000 words, related to MS OS/MS Office and computer networking) from English into simplified Chinese in 1993/1994. These 3 books were published by "Publishing House of Electrical Industry" (China) in 1994/1995.

I began to work for a global telecom manufacturer since 1994, and I worked as a marketing professional in this company till 2002. During this period, translation/interpretation was a part of my job. I finished the translation of numerous documents, and did many interpretations for seminars and conferences. Besides, I was in charge of proofreading/editing the technical articles issued to the public since 1997. The topics which I worked on covered:

  • telecommunications: mobile communications (e.g. GSM, CDMA, GPRS, 1xRTT, WCDMA, CDMA2000), trunking systems (e.g. TETRA, TETRAPOL), data communications (e.g. IP, ATM), optical transmission;
  • computing/information technology: hardware, software, mobile computing;
  • business/commerce: marketing materials (advertising, commercials, etc.), sales contracts, e-commerce.

Since 2002, I became a full-time freelance translator. My knowledge and expertise has been extended through the cooperation with my clients and translation agencies. Besides those mentioned above, the topics I'm able to handle with quality include:

  • travel/tourism: general information, promotion materials, website content;
  • electronic appliance: user manuals.

The finished projects include the ones of web site localization and software localization.

Since 2006, I started to help some translation agency to assess the translation quality (from English into simplified Chinese).
