Kate Ritchie GAICD

  • Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors

Kate co-founded Chin Communications in 1992. Prior to this, she worked in China for a number of years and was prescient in identifying the importance language would play in Australia’s future.

Kate focuses on securing long-term relationships across business and industry sectors, and leads Chin in delivering outstanding language services to clients as their ‘trusted language partner’, solving their communication problems.

Kate has been a board member of the Australian Institute of Interpreters (AUSIT) and one of the instigators of the AUSIT Excellence Awards in Interpreting and Translating. She was also a board member of the Australia China Business Council Victoria Division. Kate continues as a member and contributor to both organisations. She is also a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD).

The local choir, her garden, travelling and anything on the ABC – radio and TV – occupy her not very abundant spare time.


What makes us different

Form & function

Chinese characters transcend functionality - each character is an artform. We'll make sure function, form, and font are in perfect harmony.

Quality guarantee

Our Chinese marketing translations are crafted and written especially for your audience, and always culturally-appropriate - it's far more than translation, it's communication.

Design and printing

Our team of designers can turn concept into reality. We're well-versed in the Adobe and Microsoft suites, Canva, and CorelDraw. And our video subtitling and print production capabilities are also fast and brilliant.

First-class pedigree

We've worked on campaigns with Fortune 500 companies, heads of state, monarchs, and global organisations - you'll be in good company.
