Cheng's translator is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, appearing as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto V.



He is a member of the Los Santos Triads, serving under Wei Cheng. He works as a translator for Wei's son, Tao Cheng, who is unable to speak English.

Events of GTA V

Under Wei's orders, the translator and Tao meet up with Trevor Philips to discuss potential partnership. Trevor brings the duo to his meth lab, who is under attack from the Aztecas, leading Trevor to hide the translator and Tao in a freezer to keep them safe while he fends off the attackers. After the attack, the terrified translator takes Tao away from the area.

After the incident, the translator reveals to Trevor that Wei decided against his potential partnership with Trevor in favor of another, but refuses to reveal who. He finally reveals the new partner to be the O'Neil brothers after Trevor smashed Tao's head against a wall several times. If the player chooses The Third Way he can be killed along with the Los Santos Triads by Franklin.
