About Oliver Radtke

Oliver Radtke is a Ph.D. candidate working on the theme of Chinglish, a rather peculiar yet creative mix of the Chinese and English language. He was awarded an MA in Modern Chinese Studies from Heidelberg University (Germany) and Shanghai International Studies University (China). His thesis dealt with the socio-political relevance of the Chinese blogosphere. Oliver Radtke has since then published three books entitled Welcome To Presence: Abenteuer Alltag in China, Chinglish: Found in Translation (2007) and Chinglish: Speaking in Tongues (2009). He is also the founder-moderator of, the online museum for all things Chinglish.
