About me


My name is Chun-Yen Chen from Taiwan. I live in London now with an eligible visa to work full-time in the country. I am a native Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese speaker and I also speak English to a fluent level. I have 3.5 years of professional, full-time experience working as a translator in Taiwan’s news channels. I translated and transcreated all kinds of materials, from fashion, business to innovations. My works included pieces on Hermes, Uniqlo and so on. I always made sure my translation works were done with the highest possible quality in both accuracy and creativity under stringent deadlines. My efforts usually paid off with pretty high ratings. Also as part of my duties, I assisted supervisors in news selection, sourced them to fellow translators and worked closely with other divisions such as film editing and post production. As the nature in the news team, I am very used to multitasking and fast-paced work environments. Currently I am working as a travel consultant in China Town, London, mainly dealing with Chinese-speaking clients and assist them in booking flights and tours. Therefore I am well aware of nuances of interacting with the Chinese. In addition, I love travel and writing, evidenced by a travel book I published called Venturing into the Persian Gulf. ( I would describe myself as outgoing, self-motivating and responsible. I am also very attentive to details and extremely organized. Combining all the above-mentioned capabilities and qualities, I believe I am the best candidate for this role. Yours Sincerely, Chun-Yen Chen
