Resume/C.V.

I am a professional Chinese translator with over five years of experience. Although a Chinese citizen, I typically split each year between the US and China. My unique position living in and working with both cultures allows me to create especially accurate and localized translations in each language.

I have been providing Chinese translation services for the past five years for clients ranging from large corporations to private individuals. I specialize in marketing and creative translations as well as a few other subjects drawn from my professional experience.

My name is Ivy Feng, and I do 100% of my own work. I never outsource to cheap agencies overseas, nor do I use computers to do the bulk of my translation for me. If you're looking for a Chinese translator who understands that each job is more than simply switching one word for another, that culture and the target audience must be taken into account to achieve the best effect, then you've come to the right place.
Service Description
I provide professional translations to and from Simplified or Traditional Chinese and English. I also offer proofreading and editing services in my native Chinese. I have solid experience translating everything from technical user manuals to legal contracts to social dating websites, and I invite you to check out my portfolio at http://Ivy_Feng.elance.com/ for several Chinese translation samples. I also have multiple references and additional samples available on request.

Every document that I translate will be proofread with meticulous detail to ensure the utmost accuracy and quality, and I will firmly calibrate your text for the particular technical field, desired tone and target audience. I also contract with a fellow professional translator to provide an independent review of every text that I translate. This independent proofreading is completely free of charge to you; it's at my expense to ensure that I provide the most accurate finished translation possible!

Payment Terms
I prefer to use Elance's Escrow system and feel that this is the safest and most honest method of working for both provider and employer. With fixed-price projects, all parties know what is being purchased and at what price before beginning work.
