    Native German-English-German Translator

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 3

    My name is Jennifer Hofmann, I am a highly skilled translator for German-English and English-German. I also have experience translating French-English. As a native German with professional experience in the areas of administration, finance and tourism, as well as daily use of both languages and regular visits to Germany, I have both the knowledge of the language and insight in the culture. I continuously further my education not only in the linguistic area but also in areas such as software development and financial topics to be able to provide a broad spectrum of high quality translations. I have always been interested in foreign languages and have made those my priority in my studies. When I had the opportunity to move to the United States in 2004, I didn't hesitate, and have not regretted it since. I was able to work in different areas of the tourism industry and also in administration and accounting since moving to the USA before starting my own translation business. I very much enjoy my work, as languages always have been and still are my passion. I thrive to excel with everything I do and would be happy to assist you with all your translation needs. I am very experienced working with MS Office, as well as some website editors and translation software. For references, please contact me.
