I have been working with Chinese since 1997, where I started as interpreter and translator for two joint-ventures working in manufacturing (lighting and flushing technology). I have later worked as independent consultant providing services to Italian companies working in China, mostly for imports to Italy. I have therefore a wide experience in manufacturing, trading and shipping, both for general translations of documents (management, accounting, regulations, etc.) as well as more technical fields (injection moulding, die-casting, technical drawings, etc.).
Last Chinese qualification has been HSK level 5, obtained in March 2010.

English has been the interface language while studying Chinese, I thus feel confident I can translate Chinese into English as well. I have also attended a master degree whose lectures and final thesis was in English and published an article in English in the academic journal China Information.

I have been working abroad since 1992; besides a diploma in foreign languages, I have thus an active knowledge of English, French and German, languages which I use for my daily work, including translation.

I presently live in Germany, where I took the opportunity to take some further German courses at C2 level at the Goethe Institut.

My wide professional experience allows me to work with different types of documents, the long working experiences in foreign languages helped me develop a feeling for words.

Please feel free to contact me by e-mail to have my further contact details.
