Wen Jian

Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Our CEO previously led the team of professional translators and editors at the Financial Times of London’s China-based translation agency

Wen Jian, prior to establishing Shanglong, was senior translator, editor and team leader at the London Financial Times’ translation and editorial facility in Nanjing.  Shortly after his arrival, he led the team that reorganized the translation, summarization and editorial work flow systems to provide a higher quality of product. 

Mr. Wen implemented the same quality assurance work flow system upon founding Shanglong in 2000, and has continued to improve it, resulting in the three-level translation-editorial-proofreading (T-E-P) process which is the cornerstone of the consistency and high quality of Shanglong’s product.  In 2006, Wen added China Business News Service to the product suite – the service provides a continuous flow of well-researched and documented news articles to trade publishers and industry-specific websites looking to supplement their content with the latest news from China in their sector.

Prior to joining the Financial Times, Mr. Wen spent three years as public relations executive and business manager at Nanjing, China's Hilton Hotel.

Mr. Wen graduated from Tianjin University of Science and Technology.
