Listeners, here's another question you always get asked at parties... "What do you do for a living?" Try answering it in  Cantonese! If you don't know the word for your profession, ask us and we'll help you out!

Hi Danilo Buendia,


Thanks for sharing! That's a very interesting job!

In Cantonese we'd call it 高級技術美術設計師

高級 "Senior"

技術美術 "Technical & Artistic"

設計師 "Designer"

My job is not a psychic, btw. That was just a curiosity...


I think the literal is:

技術藝術家

gei6 seot6 ngai6 seot6 gaa1


My job is very unusual, so it's difficult to translate. I am, in English, a Senior Technical Artist for video games, which I fear is very long to say. Is it? Is there a logical translation?

好日丹尼路 (Danilo Buendia),


I guess 靈媒 has the same power as "psychic", although it literally means “spirit medium”, never really think much about that haha. :sweat_smile:

正! 多謝晒, Olivia!


唔好意思...


靈媒係淨係用同 "spirit medium" 㗎? 佢(人)知全部㗎?


Sorry, these questions may not make any sense, but I tried to ask anyway.

Hi Danilo Buendia,


"Psychic" in Cantonese is 靈媒 (ling4 mui4), literally "spirit medium" :grin:

What is the Cantonese term for "psychic"? Is there one?
