Ciao Chow !

What’s in a name ? The name is a combination of Ciao Ciao - an Italian greeting and Chow Chow- the breed that the new owner of this company belongs to. Incidentally, both words are pronounced in the same way. In life as well as in business, Ciao Chow follows the chow chow's character: professional, honest and loyal. However, treat them without respect and they will show you some too! Treat them right and you will have the most loyal companion you could ever ask for! 

Anita van Adelsbergen MA started her international career in 1993, while still studying towards her MA degree in English and Italian. She is an experienced radio and tv professional, having worked as voice over, sports commentator, presenter and producer. She is also an experienced (conference) interpreter and is available for language classes. Through several casting agencies she has been recruited for international language acting parts. Anita is native speaker in Dutch, English and German and near- native in Italian and French. On top of that, she has a decent command of Spanish, Portuguese, Welsh and Danish. Because of her Dutch-Pakistani roots, even Urdu sounds familiar. It goes without saying we are passionate about languages…this passion will be contagious once you meet us ! 

As we are also passionate about horses and dogs, canine,-and equestrian translations is our unique specialisation. For more information on our work with dogs and horses, please visit: (Dutch only)
