I’m a content writer.


I work with agencies and clients mostly in business, finance and technology, but I do write about other stuff. For example, I’m currently writing for a multi-asset investment platform, a healthcare service, a real estate agency, a life insurance provider, an insuretech startup, a coworking space, a food blog, etc. I write about pretty much everything. 

I’m also a native Chinese translator.

I translate mostly business and technical contents from blockchain whitepapers to financial reports and legal documents, but I do take on other fun projects such as translating mobile games and film subtitles. I helped localise Spotify's marketing campaign for Hong Kong, and currently localising KPMG's social media contents into Chinese and translating Deloitte Hong Kong's internal mobile game into English.

The more professional side of me...

Janice Au, BA, MBA, LLM


I have over ten years of industry experience in language services and translation. I began building my financial expertise in the business valuation and corporate services sector before making the transition to financial market data and credit ratings. Before founding Contextual Translation, I worked for two of the largest global data providers - Fitch Ratings and Interactive Data, whose parent company also operates the New York Stock Exchange. 

As a native Chinese translator, I provide mainly financial, legal and technical translation services, covering financial reports, legal agreements and all types of technical documents including Initial Coin Offering (ICO) white papers. 


I am also a bilingual content writer working with agencies and clients to create original content for websites and blogs. Most of my articles are published by international brands seeking to establish a presence in Asia.


I translate between English and Chinese and write in both languages for platforms not only in Asia but across the globe; namely cryptocurrency exchange OKEx, multi-asset trading platform eToro, cloud-based fintech provider Intralinks, blockchain-powered data analytics platform DATAVLT, as well as other clients in healthcare, travel, real estate and insurance. I have also been involved in the localisation campaign of global brands like music-streaming service Spotify. 


I have a bachelor degree in English Literature and Linguistics, a Master of Business Administration degree, and a Master of Laws degree in International Banking and Finance Law.
