Bio
I grew up in a bilingual environment, speaking both English and Chinese in almost all aspects of life. I have been living and working in Germany for almost 8 years.
My work experience includes not only language-related fields; I worked as a signal technician posted overseas in an army base for almost three years, and also have programming and network administration experience.


In order to guarantee the quality of my translations, I generally only translate into my first native language, English. However, if explicitly requested, I also translate into German and Chinese by working closely with colleagues native in those languages.


A-Language: English (1st native language)

B-Languages: German (C2+, near-native proficiency), Chinese (2nd native language)

C-Languages: French, Italian, Spanish (I do not translate from or into these languages on a professional level)
Educational qualifications:

Master of Arts in Linguistics from the Humboldt University of Berlin (2013)

Bachelor of Arts in German and English from the Humboldt University of Berlin (2008)

Cambridge GCE 'A' Levels (2002) : Grades - AAA
