Véronique Meunier

"Removing the borders between languages while respecting cultures was always my dream".



Veronique Meunier, (née Bernot) was born in Escherange, France, into a family of mathematicians and electronics/IT pioneers. When she was 7 years old the family moved to Paris and Veronique began to study music, theatre and dance at the Conservatoire Marly Le Roi. She also began playing the harp at this time, and her life long love of the Chinese language and culture was triggered by reading an Atlas of world civilisations that was on the book shelf in the family home. She also specialised in French language, poetry and literature at Lycée Racine. At the age of 16 Veronique went to study Theatre, Film and Communications at Nanterre University, Paris West and the following year she enrolled at INALCO, Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales, University of Paris II, to study Chinese and Hindi. Following these studies Veronique signed a four year contract with Theatre D'Avignon Opera as a soprano 'artiste en troupe', during which time she also began working for her father Denis Bernot's IT company. This family collaboration led to her setting up a company with her parents and working full time as Commercial Director for BMA, Bernot Morvan Avenir, working in sales, programming and software development. During this phase of her life Veronique created a hyper language, HELENA, which was used to develop apps for major clients, and she began working with major national companies and the ministries of telecommunications, health and social welfare and with Madame Danielle Mitterrand for Fondation France Liberté.

In the next phase of her life, Veronique began teaching Chinese language courses and devising the pedagogy to support them and initiated an academic research partnership with the distinguished Chinese scholar Fei Yun from EDITIONS YOU FENG, research that involved building bridges between the basics of the language and the latest information about the linguistic/archeological roots of Chinese, research that informed the content of her subsequent Manga publications - books that are now a core curriculum element in Chinese teaching in Confucius Institutes in France.

In the next phase of her life Veronique was a farmer in Languedoc-Roussillon, as well as a voluntary educational tutor for adults and children in Lodève and surrounding areas. She also began devising a video games quiz for learning Chinese and began formal training as a patissier traiteur whilst continuing her voluntary work in hospitals offering teaching, training and performance in singing, music, arts and crafts and teaching music in all kindergarten and primary schools in Lodève. At this time Veronique led a group of 40 farmers in a successful bid to the EU department of rural modernisation, leading to the development and modernisation of the mountain zones of Herault, and she also created a food business, LES DELICES DE L'ESCANDORGUE, a patisserie business, LE DOMAINE DE SOPHIE, and while marketing these businesses made a dozen television and radio programmes, with extensive written coverage in magazines and other published media. During this this time she began teaching Chinese online and learnt the Cambodian language Khmer.

In the next phase of her life Veronique was commissioned by the Director of EDITIONS YOU FENG to create new encyclopaedic dictionaries, both printed and online, and after years of research her first book CHINE MON AMOUR was published. Veronique began giving conferences and lectures on Chinese Culture and Writing at universities, lycées and colleges in Lille, Arras, Calais, Lens, Montpellier, Lodève, Bézier, Nancy and Metz. CHINE MON AMOUR LES CLES DE L'ECRITURE CHINOISE AFFICHE PLASTIFIEE was published, followed by CHINE MON AMOUR, JE PARLE CHINOIS EN MANGA and then J'ECRIS LE CHINOIS EN MANGA. She then began working as a translator, designer and sub-editor at EDITIONS YOU FENG, specialising in ancient non-simplified Chinese. Her novel L'ENFANCE was published by GALLIMARD DDB, desclée de brouwer, she began lecturing in Chinese Language and Culture at the University of Artois in Arras, and, after 3 years of research, the YIN-YANG book on food and culture was published. Her successes as a writer were formally acknowledged when she was awarded the Médaille de Vermeil by the Société Académique Arts, Sciences, Lettres at a ceremony in Paris, and was appointed Director of Collections for all bilingual publications and official state translations for the Chinese Government at EDITIONS YOU FENG, PARIS.

A further creative phase began when Veronique started writing lyrics for musical and operatic works. To date she has penned 4 pieces: Evidence Frontières, an opera in 2 acts; Evidence Pop, an opera in 2 acts; The Monkey King, a transcultural cantata; Beyond Your Elsewhere, a transcultural oratorio. These works have been performed in France, Italy and the U.K. Veronique enjoys travel, is a qualified pilot for both aeroplanes and boats, and is passionate about coffee, Shakespeare and luggage.

"I have been motivated by the thought that my translations may play a part in creating a brighter future with more direct and open communication between all peoples"
