In the summer of 2014, Céline André graduated with a bachelor's degree in Translation Studies from the ZHAW. She completed a specialisation module in Multimodal Communication with German, Italian and English as her principal languages. After graduation, Céline joined TRANSLATION-PROBST Ltd. in order to put her enthusiasm for languages and her organisational talents to work in the areas of translation and key account management.

With her passion for dancing and travelling, Céline also enjoys experiencing other cultures during her free time, which helps hone her sixth sense for cultural nuances. These leisure activities have also enabled her to acquire excellent Spanish skills.
The fact that merely switching around the position of individual letters can create a completely different language that connects people is what fascinates Céline about languages. Languages connect cultures and she wants to be part of this fascinating process.
