Service Description

I would like to offer my services in translation (from Chinese to English, Spanish to English, and Filipino to English). For the last several years, I have been pursuing a career in translation. I minored in Chinese and even signed up for several study programs in China. I also studied Spanish for many years and even translated Spanish documents for the Philippine National Library, and am in the pool of translators for the Confucius Institute in the Philippines.

In addition, having majored in History in college and also worked in the Philippine National Library, I can also do historical research for those who are researching on the Philippines.
