Welcome to my website! 謝謝您的造訪!

My name is Jeanette Lin. I come from Taiwan. I have been living in California, USA since 1992 when I came to study translation in Middlebury (Monterey) Institute of International Studies. My husband John is American and he is my editor for English writing. We live in San Jose, California. I love the nice weather and cultural diversity of California.


I wear at least three hats: I am a translator/interpreter, writer and teacher. As a translator, I mainly translate documents and books from English into traditional Chinese. I also interpret for patients, schools, and immigration interviews. I enjoy expressing my creativity through taking on new assignments each time. Please click this link to take a look at my teaching website.

我至少有三個工作頭銜:筆譯/口譯員、作家和教師。在中英筆譯方面,我做過書籍和文件的翻譯,我也替學校、病人和移民面試當口譯員。每件工作都不一樣,所以讓我能夠發揮創意,樂在其中。我的教學網站連結 link

I am a published Chinese writer. My articles are published in the Chinese newspaper World Journal in the US. I wrote my memoir in English. I was very inspired by the life and novels of Jane Austen, so I wrote a Chinese book about her. So far, I have written four books.


I teach Chinese in a Saturday Chinese school to elementary students. I enjoy learning new philosophy and digital tools for teaching. It is such a rewarding experience to see the students grow and develop as the class progresses. I believe I have made an impact on them.


I hope I will have the privilege to work with you. Please feel free to contact me via email: writerjeanette@gmail.com if you have any questions and any projects.  I look forward to hearing from you.
