Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Adrian Zingg received his term training with his father, the steel cutter Bartolomäus Zingg, and then became an apprentice with engraver Johann Rudolf Holzhalb (1723-1806). In 1757 he worked in Bern, painting vedute with Johann Ludwig Aberli. Together with the medalist Johann Caspar Mörikofer (1732-1790), he travelled to Paris in 1759, where Zingg worked for seven years with the engraver Johann Georg Wille.
