Translation

W. Ming (June, 2016 – May, 2018)

At W. Ming, I have been involved in translating various exhibition descriptions, didactic materials, press releases, artists’ interviews, and publicity materials from Chinese to English. Some works are listed here:

Flaten Art Museum (September, 2014 – May, 2018)

As Museum Assistant and Collection Assistant at the Flaten Art Museum, I have translated Chinese inscriptions on Asian artworks housed at the museum. These artworks include a variety of media such as ceramics, paintings, calligraphies, and bronze works. Also, I have translated academic works, such as Professor Kucera’s conference paper for 2014 International symposium on Dazu Studies,  “Continuing the Legacy of Yang Jialuo into the Digital Age”——数字化时代下传承杨家洛的馈赠.

artnet News (July – December, 2015)

As Part-time translator at artnet, I translated and edited English articles published on the artnet News website into Chinese. These works were then published on the artnet News China website and Wechat platform.
