Service Description

Translation: English to Chinese, and vice versa.

Boutique translation: If translators keep saying your source text is too tricky, or they somehow repeatedly fail to capture the soul of your text, try me.

Emergency room translation: Got a ton of stuff to translate within a tight deadline? Let's talk. I'm fast. I mean, I am the definition of "fast".

Interpretation: You know the drill. I'm not a certified court interpreter, but you can call me if you need someone for the interview with an immigration officer.

Localization: I do whole websites, preferably WordPress-based, which is much better organized and encapsulated than its peers, but things like Drupal and Joomla can be done as well. Also I have done plenty of localization for PC games/software and mobile apps.

Subtitling: Transcription included. Send your video over and I'll have it subtitled.
