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.

Yes, if your work need it. But if you just want to travel around the city, you can hire a tour guide. It will be cheaper to hire a tour guide for you.
