I'm currently working as a TC in Korea and the
lifestyle and work environment here is great. If
you're interested in a change, but want to stay in the
region, maybe we can start a discussion off-list. I've
got some other contacts in Taiwan and know of TCs
working in Japan and other Asian countries as well.

With that background, I assume that you speak, read,
and write Chinese reasonably well. I think that you
should consider working for companies in China or
Taiwan as a technical writer, editor, or translator. I
looked into that a few years ago and there was
considerable demand for technical writers in Taiwan
and elsewhere in East Asia.
