Zhaoguang Kuang

Zhaoguang Kuang

Proficient English-Chinese translator/interpreter

China - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 12

Is 1,000,000 words long? Yes, it is. It is unimaginable for me just one year ago. But at the moment, I dare say it is not that difficult as I have already translated 10 books out of a novel which consists of 17 books. There are still 6 books left for me to translate. Why is not it 7? The first book was translated by another translator and I started from the second one. I am more patient than him or her, I guess. And the most important point is that I see highly of quality. I do not accept work that is cheap because I can not keep offering a high quality when I have to consider how much I earn per hour. After the rest of the novel is translated the word count will surpass 1,000,000 because it is already more than 700,000 now. My lifetime datas: Earning: more than $12,000 Reviews: 4.9 and 100% recommend Ten clients in total but 40% repeat I am one of the best English-Chinese translators Upwork has to offer.
