Good writing is the best way to better communicate with people around the world. Thankfully, the English materials that I read are of better standard. The pieces are grammatically correct and have accurate punctuation.

Chinese materials that I came across are still lousy. Perhaps the writers are always writing with a fear that their readers could not understand them. So they lower the language standard to an unbelievably low level. I think there is a reason as to why I have been reading English books and materials most of the time upon graduation from NTNU.

As a translator, I always remind myself to write clear and concise language. This is about the writer’s and the reader’s dignity. Do not humiliate your readers with lousy language. Keep this in mind and we will have a good start.
