I am a native Chinese with a Master's degree in translation. My language combination in university is English to Chinese. During the three years of study (one year of Honours and two years of Masters) I have worked as a freelance translator and interpreter. I also hold a bachelor's degree in German language and literature. I was in Germany for one year and obtained a C2 certificate for German language.
