I'm a student majoring in Languages (branch: Linguistics), currently working as a freelance translator. I've recently discovered Dropbox and I'm going to use it for my needs! :)

I love
Languages, Movies (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Tarantino, etc.), Music, 3D Graphics, books and so on.

Appointed ♦ Moderator Pro Tempore on Linguistics SE, Chinese SE and the Russian SE site. If you're interested in other Stack Exchanges, try the Italian SE site.

I like to lurk on other sites' Metas. Meta is fun!

My feature requests:

  1. Alert a moderator when an answer is improved after a post notice
  2. Automatically add chat event to the community bulletin (or make it easier)
  3. Give 10k users the ability to see the total count of flags they've handled

Moderator issues: If you have concerns or want to contact me about my moderation, you can find/ping me either in the Linguistics SE chat room or CL&U chat room; if I'm not there or I'm "idle", just ping me! Please avoid using my personal email for such things. Use the chat rooms.

comment What does this character mean?
The Pinyin seems to be just Yán and not Yàn. Besides, according to what I found and also another answer below, this is not a Chinese character but the Japanese variant of 鹽 / 盐.

comment What should a beginner be looking for when selecting a movie in Chinese?
In case you don't agree with the closure, I suggest you create a question in our Chinese Language Meta, that would be the best thing to do. For example, if you want to propose ways to improve this question, etc. I'll be glad to help along with other mods.

comment What website will speak Cantonese to me?
Sorry Chits, but this type of questions are not allowed on SE, because they don't fit well the format. Usually asking for "does anyone know..." or "is there any..." invites other users to provide lots of answers. Check the description below. :) In case you need help or you want to discuss the decision, please consider asking a question in our Chinese Language Meta.

David, welcome to CL&U. We actually look for answers that provide an explanation by themselves, without relying on external sources only. You can link, but make sure your answer is self-sufficient. :)

comment What is a good English translation for “老乡”?
Thanks for the edit, but it's still insufficient. The question is too open-ended. @pegausbupt In what situation you'd use this translation? We don't want answers to list every single possible situation.

comment How can I translate “非语言表达方式”?
@JamesJiao It's good to be pedantic when using languages. Don't worry about it! Besides, being pedantic makes your answers more accurate, because you'll be worried that they'll be ambiguous and this will make you write more. :D

comment How to say “meeting” in Chinese?
Interesting! :) I think I'll use the latter, it "sounds" better. I'll wait for other proposals, but I really like yours.

comment How to say “meeting” in Chinese?
@JamesJiao Like Huang said it's Chinese Language & Usage, following EL&U for English, JL&U for Japanese, FL&U for French, GL&U for German and when it'll enter Beta, IL&U for Italian. :)
