Dear Sir/Madam,

To anyone who is planning to market or if your products are going to circulate in Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and China; the very first piece of advice I would like to suggest is that: if you really want your clients to better understand you and remember you, you need localization **, thus translate all your brochures, documentations, leaflets, letters, webpages and other relevant documents into the language(s) of target audiences in specific countries or locations.

** localization - The process of adapting text and cultural content to specific target audiences in specific locations. The process of localization is much broader than just the linguistic process of translation. Cultural, content and technical issues must also be taken into account. The localization Industry Standards Association (LISA) defines localization as "the process of modifying products or services to account for differences in distinct markets". See for more detailed information about the localization process.

With more than 5 years working experiences as freelance translator and equipped by different sets of dictionaries and glossaries, I am capable to translate or localize your products, in order for you or your company to capture the markets in Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan. I shall cooperate with Mainland China's translators to localize your products for China market too.

Personally, I can translate around 2000 words of input daily, from English / Malay into Chinese. My standard per source word rate for translation (including proofreading) is RM 0.12 (USD 0.03) and I always client an overall pricing and timeframe per project, after a detail analysis of all files.

Expect quality output at reasonable pricing. Action speaks louder than words. You are welcomed to ask for sample translation (free of charge) to preview the actual translation output, before you decide to order my service. And yet, I don't mind translate short paragraph for friendly inquiries, free of charge. Don't hesitate to drop me a line. I shall try my best to minimize your language doubts.
