Christopher A. Elia

Primary Profession: Independent Translator

Language(s): Chinese, literary (classical) and poetic Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Icelandic, Finnish

Bio: I'm based in New York, a native speaker of English. My foreign language studies span over twenty-five years, in-depth study, always keeping in mind the unique cultures in which each language is used. I've always had an affinity for written expression, which I feel is essential to translate a piece for media, whether an article or a work of fiction. My experience thus far has mostly been in legal and financial translation, but with my literary background I know I will be a competent and accurate literary translator.
