Cheng Lin

Native Chinese Translator and Networker with Sales and Marketing Focus


Xiamen, China


I’ve been translating (and proofreading) from English into Mandarin/Chinese (Simplified & Traditional) since 2004 and started to serve the oDesk community since 2009 when I got inspired by “The World Is Flat” and especially “The 4-hour Work Week". I’m a bachelor degree holder and have passed IELTS test, and also acquired nationally accredited diploma in English from China Education Bureau. I joined multinationals in 2004 and have worked with Americans and French since then. My time dealing with English-speaking people helps me not only become more fluent, but also gives me the cultural knowledge one needs to be a successful ... moretranslator. Additionally, with my professional manner as well as a "can-do" attitude, I'd also love to be involved in any projects related to Chinese language or market, e.g. copywriting, marketing, market research, product sourcing, china business consulting, etc. I'm now ranked one of the top 1% contractors from China with 100% positive feedback from all my happy clients, who have generously spent nearly $30,000 on me, including some key accounts of oDesk like Amazon A9 and New York Film Academy. If interested, please don't hesitate to invite me to bid on your project and you will see where I come in for you. less
