A sample Zh-En project

bigdata
Here are a few samples of my recent projects. Still working on building a decent portfolio of Chinese to English translations. Here’s my first sample. Would eventually like to work with new partners on projects, or just simply network and share leads on potential work. Feel free to contact me! Opportunities and Challenges for Social Science Research in the Age of Big Data. Only sharing the opening paragraphs, since it would be showing a lack of respect for the authors to share the whole thing without their consent. I think the ideas presented in it are quite interesting. It kind of alludes to the idea of E-Government. Very touchy subject, but interesting nevertheless. Although there is no real mention of it in the paper, it makes me think that eventually, China might try to develop a new form of democracy using social media. I guess you might call it “E-Democracy”. Again, this is only a personal impression, and doesn’t represent what the researchers are proposing in the paper. There have been attempts to create some kind of e-Government with a few western cities, but most have just pushed aside for more pressing and urgent issues. The reason why I have an interest in the topic is that worked for a part of my life as a quantitative research assistant. Anyhow here are my two files, with the source language being Chinese and the target language being English. Had to put the English text as two pages / files. The Chinese file only uses one page. It’s curious, since I had teachers repeat over and over how redundant French was when it came to the written word. I guess if you compare Chinese to English, it’s the English text that seems redundant and makes use of a lot of “textual space”.
