A highly qualified & experienced interpreter for complex business negotiations,technical discussions, press conferences, company and government functions, high-profile international conferences,seminars,workshops, TV shows & interviews,road shows,opening ceremonies, etc

My name is Liang Xiaofang (Liang is the family name, in case you wonder). Alternatively, you can call me Yvonne, which is my English name.

I earned my B. A. degree in Translation & Interpreting Studies from Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, the most prestigious foreign language institute in southern China, where I received rigorous training in conference interpreting and translation of various subjects.

I also studied on the Training Program for Advanced Translators and Interpreters in China Foreign Affairs University, a top-ranking university noted for turning out diplomats and interpreters for the Foreign Ministry of China.

My full-time work experience spanned the public and private sectors. I worked in positions where I had to use my language skills constantly. Notably, I worked as a full-time ESL teacher for two years in a language training center, where about half of my colleagues were native speakers of English. I interacted with them on a daily basis, which enabled me to be constantly immersed in an English-speaking environment. Meanwhile, the experience helped me develop my expertise in cross-cultural training and perfect my English skills.

I am now a freelance conference interpreter and translator stationed in Guangzhou, China. I interpret simultaneously and consecutively from Chinese into English and vice versa. My wide experience includes interpreting and translating on a multitude of subjects for international organizations, high-level officials, government agencies,magazines, newspapers and Fortune 500 companies.

My commitment to quality work and my abiding love of languages and cultures have enabled me to attract clients from a wide range of sectors. My clients have the comfort of knowing that every piece of translation work is given the highest level of personal attention and that I always go the extra mile to give them the best possible service.

In my capacity as a professional interpreter, I've served high-level leaders and dignitaries such as King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden, Viscount Linley from the British Royal family, Captain of the legendary Swedish ship Gotheborg, snooker world champion Mr. Ronnie O'Sullivan, Nobel Laureate in Economics Mr. Kenneth Arrow ,Nobel Laureate in Economics Mr. James Mirrlees, and renowned British economist Mr.John Hawkins, to new just a few.

To whom it may concern,

Ms. Liang, Xiaofang has worked for Global FranTech in Guangzhou at the
Franchise China Expo as our Conference Interpreter, lead booth manager for
interpretation and translation and even though the period of time that
she has worked for us is very short, she has impressed me, as her
employer, during this Expo.

Ms.Liang, Xiaofang also showed initiative, imagination and
responsibility in developing new clients for us in the Expo booth for
our business. She showed very marked negotiation skills getting the
attendees to understand our company's products and services in a short
period of time they visited our Expo booth. She is particularly adept at
making us contact both at very high and low levels. She was certainly
most effective for us.

Ms Liang, Xiaofang was also very successful in motivating and organizing
the booth team for me. Her responsibility and personal integrity are
among her most outstanding features. Her English as our Conference
Interpreter we rated the highest of all 9 translators we used for the
China Expos, and shall use her services again upon our return to China.

We wish her every success in her continued career.

Hello Yvonne,

I really did not get a chance to thank you for all your help or say good-bye at the airport. It was all so rushed. So I thought I would send you an email to let you know how much I appreciated all your help while I was in China. It is nice to have a translator that was so thoughtful and helpful! I had a wonderful time and enjoyed seeing the sights with you. If you ever get a chance to visit the US and are near Michigan give me a call.
Hope all is well.

Best Regards,

I will return to Dafen sometime next year so will be sure to let you know and maybe you can come with me again for a couple of days as I found your interpreting skills very helpful and really enjoyed your company.

Good luck with your other ventures and keep busy!
