Julius Chan - Creator

Hi there! I am the creator of Reconfine. I have been working on this side project to summarize and organize what I have learnt as a student majoring in economics and finance.

As a native Chinese and Japanese speaker, I translated and curated a database of economics and finance terminologies. If you are planning to work in a Chinese or Japanese company, or you are a translator who are unfamiliar with vocabularies in the financial industry, our ever-expanding database of terminologies can definitely be helpful to you.
