Service Description

I'm a Vietnamese writer/translator based in Melbourne, Australia. I've joined Elance on April. 12, 2013 after having seen so many word-by-word translations of English into Vietnamese (instead of translating the meanings) appearing in numerous advertisements, newspaper articles, books. etc.

I believe these translations have in general resulted from a of lack of knowledge of cultural differences i.e. different societies and the practices of its people, or, to be more specific, a lack of understanding of "words in business/legal/etc. context " in both languages.

Drawing upon my diverse background/life experience mentioned above, I am confident that I would be able to translate English into Vietnamese that make sense to the Vietnamese readers.
