Describe a person who is good at his or her job
You should say:
Who this person is
What his or her job is
How he or she likes the job
And explain why this person is good at the job
The person I am going to talk about is my grandpa, who is a translator working at the Chinese foreign ministry. His job involves translating Japanese documents, newspapers, and statements into Chinese as well as accompanying diplomatic officials to meet Japanese representatives so that they can perfectly understand each other.
He has been doing this for over thirty years. At first, he was just a low-rank employee, working at a small cell and buried by tons of papers. Every document he had processed had to be checked by senior staff to avoid potential mistakes. This article is from Laokaoya website. But now he is eligible to check others’ work and decide the specific translation of some controversial words and sentences to make sure they are accurate and convey the original meaning.
Being a translator had always been my grandpa’s dream and he had shown a gift for this from quite an early age. He could easily grasp the grammatical rules behind Japanese and master its pronunciation in a short time. Naturally, he chose Japanese as his major when he entered college and enrolled in the foreign ministry after graduation since it was the only department that recruited Japanese translators back then.
I think the success my grandpa has achieved in his job mainly results from his passion for this career. He really loves Japanese and enjoys the process of translating. When he finally finds the correct translation of a certain word after a lot of consultation, he can feel a sense of achievement rather than relief.
