Shen Yuning / 沈玉宁, the editor of Kamusi Mpya ya Kiswahili-Kichina (Toleo kwenye Intaneti)1, is a PhD candidate of the University of Hamburg. Right now he is focusing on his doctoral thesis in the field of Bantu linguistics.

The Swahili-Chinese Dictionary Project started at the end of 2011 as a small personal initiative for translating knowledge (broken link). The project was funded for one and a half years mainly through grant writing in weibo and later on by some close friends of the editor. The finished manuscript, however had no fortune to be published in China. In early 2014, the editor decided to upload parts of the manuscript because of bad funding situation at that time.
