To whom it may concern, here’s a brief introduction of myself.

I'm a Swiss national who has been living in China for more than 8 years now. Through these years living in Beijing, I've gained extensive knowledge of China and accumulated experience in Business Development and Translation/Interpretation with a track record of getting tasks/projects done on time and to the highest standards. I am someone who takes great pride in my work, and who as a self-motivated team player is able to take responsibility for delivering to tight deadlines. I believe I have a wide range of valuable transferable skills gained through study, volunteering, sports and work experience that can be used across various job roles and functions. One of my strongest competencies is my ability to manage several projects at the same time, this coupled with my outstanding communications/ language skills makes me an ideal candidate for any position. 

I'll take this place to indicate that i'm fluent in four languages: French (native), Swiss-German/German (near native), English (near native) and Chinese Mandarin.

As a freelance translator, interpreter and proofreader, I have sound knowledge and understanding of the ideas and concepts between different languages and have the ability to interpret them in an appropriate manner. I am proficient in both written and spoken skills of all the above-mentioned languages, with excellent understanding of all the grammar structures.

I provide regular translations across the following sectors: High Tech, Sports, Comics, Video-games content, Education, Tourism & Entertainment and more.

I have worked in a multi-cultural setting performing mainly IT-related tasks as well as working for an international NGO in Africa in which my language skills came out as being a big asset.

More recently I've attended as a interpreter the World Watch & Jewelery fair in Basel, Switzerland and the Sino-Swiss Environment Dialogue in Guiyang, Guizhou. Owing to my language skills , several business contracts were sealed and many business relations were secured.
