Dirk Späth

Native German Translator


Freiburg, Germany


I am a native German speaker and I lived in Germany for the most part of my life. In June 2013 I quit my job as a nurse at the University Hospital in Freiburg, Germany to become a dive instructor, translator and digital nomad, travelling the world. At the moment I'm in the Philippines. I started to work on oDesk as an English to German translator in May 2013. Since my students exchange in the USA (Pennsylvania) I am fluent in both written and spoken English. Since my time in the USA I always kept exposed to English with the internet, movies, radio, books ... moreand contact to both American and British friends. I have tutored students of all ages in English as a part time job. I consider English my second mother tongue. less
