My name is Chelsea. I would love to serve your needs in interpretation/translation. My qualification includes a solid educational background in both English and Chinese languages as well as my years of life and work experiences. In addition, I am a good writer (creative writing is one of my hobbies) and my teaching, media and marketing background makes me a strong communicator. My ability of understanding of people of all walks, of all origins makes me a better interpreter. I have lived in Taiwan for many years but my parents are originally from China (Shandong Province). I came to the US in 1989 and have lived and worked here ever since. My equal exposure of both Chinese and American people, culture and working environment also helps me in the interpretation/translation.
