Hi there, I am Sherlyn, a fully bilingual professional with 14 years of experience in Chinese English translation, transcreation, proofreading, and copy editing.
I specialize in legal translation and have worked for a law firm in-house for two years and as a freelancer for nine years. I have assisted many clients in creating legal relations and resolving disputes. My end clients include Chinese and American courts and law firms.
I am an expert in marketing translation and transcreation. Having worked in New Zealand for years and living with my Chinese/kiwi cross-cultural family, I have the cultural sensitivity essential to successful marketing communications. I have helped a number of brands to navigate international markets, including smartphone and smart home appliance brands, outdoor brands, education app operators, and magazine agencies.
I am an MITI (qualified member of ITI) in Chinese to English translation. In our family business run by my husband, I am in charge of drafting, proofreading and polishing company policy, health and safety procedures, marketing copy, and correspondence with vendors/clients. Lately I have ventured into SEO web content creation.
My experience extends to the fields of business, general finance, tourism, hospitality, gaming, extreme sports, immigration, maritime affairs, and sewing. Now mum to a bilingual child, I have also found a new passion for translating children’s literature.
A speaker of Mandarin, Cantonese, Hakka, and English, I work on the following language/dialect pairs: Chinese (Simplified & Traditional) > English; English > Chinese (Simplified & Traditional HK); Hakka > English.
I am responsible and resourceful, and always go the extra mile to support my clients in achieving their targets.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to working with you.
