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.

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.
