When you go on a business trip to China, do you hire an interpreter? How do you find an interpreter?
I am an English-Chinese interpreter/translator in Hangzhou,China so I think your answer can help me do a better job. Thank you! I want to expand my business. Before I become an interpreter, I also work in several international trade companies so I can say I have experiences in many industries. So far I have accompanied my clients to companies and factories in medical apparatus, fabrics, bicycles, camera,plastic machinery,etc. No problem so far.
