My name is HE Li. I provide Chinese-English translation service and I hold the credentials of Certified Advanced Translator (English into Chinese) and Certified Translator (Chinese into English) awarded by NAATI.
My NAATI credentials will expire on 28 March 2021 and after that date, I will opt out of the NAATI re-certification scheme. This is because I strongly feel that, as professional translators, we need to set a higher standard of quality if we want to successfully tackle the greater challenges facing our profession today, and we also need to work harder to achieve that standard. Unfortunately, the ill-conceived and self-defeating design of the NAATI re-certification scheme is not conducive to upholding a standard that high, in fact, it militates against any efforts to achieve that standard.
What this means to my clients is that after March 2021, I will not be able to handle translations of driver licences/birth and death certificates, etc.. The good news is that this also means I will be better able to offer high quality service to those clients who demand nothing less than the best possible translation quality our profession can offer.
I’m based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, but I divide my time between Australia, my adopted country, and China, my native country.
