Thank you for your warm congratulation on my winning the translation contest. Now I will give you some advice on translation.
To begin with, you should have an earnest interest in translation, for, just as Einstein says, interest is the best teacher. Besides, you should have an extensive reading on the two languages, because accurate translation demands that you should have a good grasp of the two languages and the culture related to the two languages. Moreover, you should grasp essential translation techniques, which will facilitate the translating process.
I hope that you can acquire some more understanding of translation via my advice.
