Trilingual interpreter (Chinese, Italian and English) with more than 1000 hours of simultaneous interpreting experience and 1400 hours of consecutive interpreting experience, specialized in: BoD meetings, Luxury Automotive Industry, International Finance & Economy and Manufacturing & Mechanical Industry, etc.
I was born in China but have lived in Italy for 15 years. I began my career working in my dad’s import & export company, dealing with daily aspects of the business such as purchasing, negotiation, customs clearance and accounting, while communicating with people in Chinese, Italian and English.
In 2015, I decided to become a freelance interpreter. Working as an interpreter has enabled me to have a good income, have flexible working hours and enjoy intellectual and creative challenges every day. I'm based in Milan, Italy, but this job has enabled me to travel around Europe or even to go back to China for work. In addition, the language competence has also allowed me to work as a multilingual MC (Master of Ceremony)/moderator from time to time.
Today many big firms are my clients, i.e.: Ferrari, Lamborghini, Brunello Cucinelli (fashion), Moody's Analytics, Generali (1st insurance company in Italy), and I also work for Chinese ministers during their diplomatic visits in Italy.
