Rauno, 33, translator/journalist from Finland.
"I discovered a passion for the Chinese language ten years ago, and a lot has happened since. Three and a half years in China gave me vast knowledge of not only the country and its culture, but also the Chinese language. By the end of 2017, I will have translated a total of six contemporary novels from Chinese into Finnish. I published several China-related articles in Finnish newspapers and magazines between 2013 and 2015. Currently, my work mostly involves journalism as well as translation between Chinese, English and Finnish, but I would say I am open to pretty much everything language-related."
Sandra, 32, Chinese language teacher from Estonia.
"My passion for everything Chinese goes back even further than Rauno's. Over the years I have both studied and worked in various parts of China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen and Kunming. I worked for the Estonian Pavilion in the Shanghai Expo in 2010, after which I participated in a Master's program in Yunnan Normal University and received my Master's Degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language in 2015. I now teach Chinese at Confucius Institute at Tallinn University, and I am available for private tutoring as well. My work languages are Estonian, English, and Chinese."
