In our global and increasingly inter-dependant economies, good intercultural communication is a “must”.
Effective communication across cultures is therefore paramount and China Insight excels in helping clients succeed through the provision of key cross-cultural solutions including translation services, interpreters, Chinese language courses, intercultural communication training and guide services.
China Insight Language & Training was established in 2011 by Ann Vlietinck, China specialist.
In 2001 Ann left for China to study Chinese at Nanjing Normal University. She graduated four years later with a Bachelor’s degree in Chinese language and literature. After graduation she stayed another four years in China to teach English and Chinese-English-Chinese interpreting courses in university.
Ann has a MA in translation studies and provides professional interpreting and translation services from Chinese into English, Dutch, and French. Translations into Chinese are proofread by Chinese linguists in China.
She has experience as a consecutive and simultaneous interpreter: consecutive interpreting from and into Chinese, simultaneous interpreting from Chinese into English and Dutch.
Ann lived in China for eight years (2001-2009) and is familiar with all aspects of Chinese society and culture. This background provides an excellent leverage for intercultural and cross-cultural trainings.
After returning to Belgium in autumn 2009, she obtained the teacher’s certificate for Chinese at the Chinese department of the Catholic University Leuven, Belgium. She uses the latest educational methods including multimedia for her teaching courses.
