    Crumpled Cellophane

    South Korea - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 1

    Brimming childhood years in Germany's Ruhr Valley as well as its industrious pendant north of the British Canal induced in an otherwise halcyon child a rare liveliness learned with further acumen in the marvels of France's bucolic South and the cordial towns of Western Latvia. Brought up in three languages (with native mastery in German and Korean), such fortunate coming of age led the ardent linguist-to-be on a much anticipated journey through Mexico, Germany, South Korea and Canada, glittering with linguistic, literary, political and cultural confetti. This journey being nothing short of a dream come true and still ongoing would lead - in my plans thus far - to the golden ends of San Francisco. When this explorer's hunger for culture and languages can only be stilled after often extensive fieldwork in German, Korean, French, Spanish, Japanese, Native American Chumash, Canadian English, Australian English, British English, and American English, no opportunity, however small, shall be missed to apply this gratefully acquired consciousness. I was fortunate to do so already on manifold occasions in Berlin, Monterrey, Seoul and Halifax. And thus here I am, happily extending my skills to a freer range of possibilities in the naming and taming business of well faring words. _____________ Master of Arts in Korean Linguistics, Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. Bachelor of Arts in Applied Linguistics, Literary and Cultural Studies, and Political Science, Technical University Dortmund, Germany. I delivered translation, editing, interpreting, wording, teaching, secretarial and/or copy writing services in English, French, German and/or Korean for Upside Shopping (Rocket Internet), Asia-Pacific Centre for International Education (UNESCO), Institute for Cultural Diplomacy, LG Electronics, eBay, Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon, Catholic University of Korea, 2nd Vidusskola Talsi, Lycee Jean Monnet, among others. My areas of interest include language and society, culture and cognition, language and identity, oral narratives, conversation analysis, corpus studies, multilingualism and migration, language change, code switching, minority communities, anthropological linguistics, and the magical realm of films and comics as never-ceasing tools of communication.

    Native German-English-German Translator

    United States - Last active: 3 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.
