Re: Translator position

Dear Ms Chan

I am writing to apply for the position of translator as advertised recently on

I am a qualified translator/interpreter with a Bachelor of Chinese Language and Business Studies and Professional Translator accreditation with the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters. As a recent graduate, I am now seeking an opportunity to use my Chinese language skills within a professional business context, in a role that utilises my excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

For the past two years and during my university studies I have worked for a local Chinese community TV station, providing subtitling and translation services. I have also provided Chinese/English tutoring services to both international business professionals and students studying the Chinese language.

I am completely fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English, and received high distinction in all my language courses. I am also an extremely hard-working, responsible and mature worker, who enjoys working in a team as well as autonomously. I really enjoy communicating with others, which is why I think I would be ideally suited to this role.

I would love the opportunity to make a contribution to your team, helping migrants to join Australia’s diverse national community. My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.

Yours sincerely,
