I am a native Cantonese speaker currently living in Toronto, Canada with native-level English. Often enough mistaken for a native English speaker, I have the additional “distinction” of having been told “The Chinese you write looks like English.”
I hold a BMath in Computer Science and is currently studying at the Alliance Française
of Toronto aiming for a DELF
B2. I also have about two years of official in-house graphic design experience.
Working language pairs – Translation
- Chinese → English (best)
- English → traditional Chinese (Hong Kong)
I do not
translate into simplified Chinese: I do not speak that dialect.
(Although “simplified Chinese” is not strictly speaking a language or dialect per se, it is often taken to mean “Chinese as spoken in mainland China”, which is very
different from other varieties of Chinese in terms of vocabulary. For a partial elaboration of this, please see this post of mine
Excerpts from a selection of my previous work can be found in the portfolio section here.
I belong to the IEEE PCS, an association for technical writers and editors (although I have never done technical translations). I am also a current member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts.
