English to Simplified Chinese Translation Professional Penny Reid

Member since June 06, 2013

Hi, my name is Penny Reid. I was born and raised in Taiwan and I came to the United States to finish my college education. Since my husband does not speak any Chinese and my mother does not speak any English, I have been translating between our families for the past 20 years. I have been bi-lingual all my life. I attended and graduated from Taipei American School which gave me a strong base of English meanwhile my mother tongue is Mandarin which I have spoken daily at home in Taiwan. I am currently assisting lawyers in the NY/NJ area with immigration clients; not just to break the language barriers in the justice system but also help the new immigrants recognizing their constitutional rights. Besides the legal career, my background is in the financial fields. I have obtained several financial designations including but not limited to various Life and Health Insurance licenses from different states and also NASD licenses. I have worked with several big financial corporations such as Prudential and New York Life Insurance companies. My goal is to help as many immigrants as possible to achieve their American dreams and continue my path in the legal field. I am sure that joining the team in VerbalizeIt will be giving me more opportunities to expose my bi-lingual abilities be more useful
