A new type of international internet matchmaker has been set up in China's Guangdong Province, providing services for women looking for foreign partners.
The matchmaking service in Zhongshan initially offers translation of personal information that then goes on a website.
Once a match has been found the matchemaker translates the love letters exchanged between the two.
When they start dating, the matchmaker is also responsible for helping the couple communicate.
Miss Deng, a matchmaker from a matrimonial agency, says she translates over 30 love letters a day.
Compared with traditional matchmakers, International matchmakers are paid much higher, with an income of over 3000 yuan per month.
