Hsin-Mei Chuang Messmer, M.A.
For more than fifteen years, I have been working as a cultural mediator, translator and author in China, Taiwan and Switzerland. I studied politics/ journalism and media studies in the USA and Taiwan and educational psychology in Fribourg (Switzerland). My path in life also takes me to unexpected realms. That's for example how I started designing websites for customers with a lot of dedication and creativity .
Among other things, I have worked on projects for universities such as the ETH Zurich or the ZHdK, as well as cultural institutions such as the Basel Museum of Cultures and swissnex (Shanghai branch). In the private sector, I enjoy working with SMEs. For example, I have taken assignments from family owned companies in the watch, cosmetics and health sectors. Before I started my own business, I worked for the international renowned advertising agency Ogilvy in Taipei.
I lived in the metropolis of Shanghai for almost ten years. Today I live with my husband in Switzerland.
My way of working is professional, personal and uncomplicated. Confidentiality is my priority. Unlike many translation agencies that send your documents further to anonymous translators abroad, your documents remain in safe hands with me. Besides, thanks to a lean organizational structure, clients avoid unnecessary additional costs. I would be happy to send you a non-binding list of my services and prices.
For NGOs and cultural projects, I'm glad to offer a special tariff.
