American chose 3 companies to reconsider the level of shrimp tax.
27/6/06
The American Department of Commerce has just annnounced the names of the Vietnamese sea products companies in the administration reviews list in the case of dumping shrimp 's price. This list including Chinese companies, the same as Vietnam, DOC believed that it has a non-market economy.
The Seafood Net published news that DOC picked 3 Vietnamese companies to put in the list for reconsidering; that is Amanda food Ltd., Phuong Nam Co. Ltd, and Fimex. These companies make up 10% in the total of shrimp exporting of Vietnam, and are the top-ten shrimp suppliers of Vietnam.
3 Chinese firms are Meizhou products, Red Garden Food and Yelin Enterprise Co. These are companies which have large volume of shrimp exporting, making up about 20% shrimp exporting volume of Chines into America.
According to this Net, the selection of these companies in the recondering financial process of DOC showed that it seemed that DOC did not choose by chance, but they were based on the shrimp exporting volume of these firms.
Among the companies from Vietnam, Amanda Foods is the company which signed an agreement with the South America Shrimp Association on June 9, but then they also were put in the administration reviews by DOC.
Talking with VN net journalist, Deputy Secretary of processing and exporting sea product Association of Vietnam, Mr. Truong Dinh Hoe said, the Association hasnt had the officially announcement from the American Department of Commerce. Furthermore, there is still time from now to July 5(90 days after DOC reconsidering the administration reviews), these firms can aslo be pulled out the administration reviews. Therefore, the Amanda Foods company's situation is not clear.
The report of Seafood said that DOC still has not admitted the agreement between exporting companies and SSA because they think that is just the agreement between two sides.

Hi Phoisen, I think you have done a remarkable job in your translations. It is fully understandable, however, I would make the following points:


(America) chose (three) companies to reconsider the level of shrimp tax.
27/6/06

The American Department of Commerce (ADOC) has just (announced) the names of the Vietnamese sea products companies in the administration reviews list in the case of �'dumping shrimp's price'. This list (also) includes Chinese companies, That ADOC believes have a non-market economy.

The Seafood Net published news that ADOC picked (three) Vietnamese companies to (be) put (on) the list for (consideration); Amanda food Ltd., Phuong Nam Co. Ltd, and Fimex. These companies make up 10% (of) the total shrimp exports of Vietnam, and are (in) the top-ten (of the) shrimp suppliers of Vietnam.

(The three) Chinese firms are; Meizhou products, Red Garden Food and Yelin Enterprise Co. These are companies, which have large volume of shrimp (exports), making up about 20% (of the) shrimp exporting volume of (China) into America.

According to (Seafood) Net, the selection of these companies in the reconsidering financial process of ADOC showed that it seemed that ADOC did not choose by chance, but (decisions) were based on the shrimp exporting volume(s) of these firms.
Among the companies from Vietnam, Amanda Foods is the company which signed an agreement with the South America Shrimp Association (SASS) on June 9, but then they also were put in the administration reviews by ADOC.

Talking with VN net journalist (either add name, or remove �'journalist), the Deputy Secretary of; Processing and Exporting Sea Product Association of Vietnam, Mr. Truong Dinh Hoe said, the Association (has not) had the officially announcement from the American Department of Commerce. Furthermore, there is still time from now to July 5 (90 days after ADOC (started) reconsidering the administration reviews), (for) these firms (to) be pulled out the administration reviews. Therefore, the Amanda Foods company's situation is not clear.
The report of Seafood (Net) said that ADOC (has) still has not (accepted) the agreement between exporting companies and SASS because they think that is just (an) agreement between two sides.


Rupert Murdoch - the most influent Australian of all age.
27/6/06

Regardless of being an American, the Chairman of the News Corporation Rupert Murdoch was elected the most influent Australian of all age yesterday.
As the Chairman and Director General of one of the biggest (media empires) in the world, Murdoch (a) billionaire was on the top of the list of 100 noblest Australian(s) collected by Bulletin magazine.

Making a speech in the award ceremony, the great 75 - year - old - merchant man, the owner of the Times, the Sun, the (Television) combination, and the American Fox picture(s)[or should that be 'News] said that he felt that he (was) not deserving (of) this (honour). Speaking to Sydney correspondents, Murdoch believed that there are other people in the list who have done much more than him to improve the world.

However, that modest attitude did not impress some (of the) audience who (were at) the award ceremony. A union activist (who was) also an environmentalist asked him: "How (is it that) the most influent Australian of all age is American?"
Rupert Murdoch was born in Melbourne, but gave up his Australian nationality in 1995 for American citizenship. This allowed him to go through the legislative wall that prevents people who (are not) American to own (television stations) in (that) country.

As a person who never misses (an opportunity), Murdoch made the most of the rare chance yesterday to appeal (to the) Australia Government to change the regulations (concerning) media (ownership). According to the great media merchant, the Government should do more (to) restructure the (rules in respect of media (ownership) involving (a) foreign element, and to make Information Technology an open playing field. If not, the previous changes that were suggested would not be brought to notice.

Murdoch also showed (a) special concern (regarding) the advantage of (a global internet). According to him, (it is important) to open (the) bandwidth (of a) high-speed internet. The information world is opening the door to everyone, no matter the geographic (location). (With) more and more people accessing the internet, everything from (the) movie industry to newspapers will have to change.

This is only my opinion, but I hope it helps.

Rupert Murdoch was born in Australia, so you can't say "Despite being an American". You could say, "despite holding American citizenship, Murdoch...

You could also say, "Billionaire media mogul (or emperor) Murdoch was tops on the list..."

@phoisen,
Well, it all depends on what standards you want to be held up to!
If you are a Vietnamese speaker doing this to practice your English, then it's not bad at all. Has a lot of mistakes, obviously, but anyone can tell what you are talking about without any difficulty.
If you mean for it to be real translation WORK, then it's quite lacking. For starters, if your post title is a question, the correct form would be "Is anyone here interested in translation work?", and in any case it sounds like you are about to offer a translation job, not requesting proof reading.
In any case, most professional translations work translating INTO their native language, so you would be more suitable for work translating from English into Vietnamese (or whatever your native language is).
Cheers!
