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 and IT market.

Since 2011 I’m based near Paris and run my own company, specializing in electronics, additive manufacturing, and medical technology. I hold an M.A. degree in Japanese Economy and Mass Communications as well as a state-certification for English/German translations.
