Andrea Bernard

I have been working as an IT journalist, business consultant and translator in Germany, Japan and France since 1995. I published/co-authored two books on IT, published various articles in magazines and newspapers and gave presentations at conferences.

While in Japan, I was responsible for the EGIS Consulting Tokyo office, assisting International clients in their strategies on the Japanese telecom market.

Since 2008 I live near Paris as a technical translator, author and university lecturer for technical translation. I hold a M.A. degree in Japanese Economy and Journalism and a state-certification for English/German translations.
