felix

Now based in Düsseldorf, Germany, I have been a conference interpreter and translator since 2012. I am also accredited as an interpreter for English (UK; native language), Chinese and German with all Germany courts. In addition to my freelance work, I taught Chinese language and Chinese-German translation at BA and MA level at the University of Bonn, Germany, and have been teaching Conference Interpreting German-English and Chinese-English at MA level at the Universities of Heidelberg (Germany)
and Leeds
.

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Conference Interpreting and Translating from the University of Leeds, recognised by the interpreting services of the European Union and the International Association of Conference Interpreters, AIIC.

To keep abreast with what is happening in the countries where my languages are spoken, I work with high-quality news outlets in my languages on a daily basis and take advanced education courses to constantly refine my skills and further my understanding of my specialisms: international relations & politics, business & trade, industry & engineering and culture & education. As a professional conference interpreter and translator, I am a member of internationally recognised professional associations such as German VKD-BDÜ and ATICOM. A social anthropologist raised and educated in London, Taipei, Cologne and Beijing, my personal and educational background has provided me with the excellent language and cultural skills and the expertise I meet all requirements you have towards me as your mediator and facilitator.
