About me
Lan Hoang/ English-Vietnamese Translator, Chartered Linguist
EDUCATION & QUALIFICATIONS

Dear my potential clients, nice to meet you! 

Learning a bit more about someone who will be your partner - a service language provider is always useful, so here are a few facts about me:

 

  • I'm Hoang Bao Lan in full, (most people call me Lan or Lan Hoang), the translator behind Lan Hoang Translations. I have been a professional translator since 2013.
  • I grew up with a special sense of awareness of the Vietnamese language from both North (modern Vietnamese accent as the national accent) and the South Vietnam accent. That makes me a long-term translator, then, for many South Vietnamese clients and U.S Schools and Government due to the fact that most of the Vietnamese in the U.S come from the South of Vietnam before 1975 with sensitive political issues with the North.
  • I have a Bachelor degree in the English Language,  and Translation Studies from the University of Hue in 2015 officially. Later, in 2020, I obtained a Master degree in Language Studies and Intercultural Communication.
  • I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) with Chartered Linguist status and a voting member of the American Translators Association (ATA). I am also a Certified Pro on ProZ.com, the world's largest professional network for translators. The special thing here is that I am the ONLY ONE CHARTERED LINGUIST in VIETNAMESE. Do you need evidence? Please check here: https://www.ciol.org.uk/translator/profile/54336/36/10296
  • I am SDL Trados certified (2021 version), MemoQ certified (Level 1) and also master many other CAT such as MemSource, Smartling, SmartCAT, ABBYY Fine Reader, etc.
  • I am also a fully qualified Vietnamese language examiner of The Second Language Testing Inc since 2020.
