What is your specialization? Jan 2, 2008

It probably depends on the specialization. Demand for German-to-English financial translators is high. Whether you are in Canada or not doesn't really matter. I am US-based, but have clients in both the US and Europe (getting paid in euros is very nice right now).

Hi,

I am specialized in Automotive technology, SAP and Banking.

Is there any scope for full-time German-English translation jobs in Canada? And also regarding the freelance of German-English translation in Canada.

I would like to read more information regarding this matter especially from the G-E translators residing in Canada.

Thank you

Hi mana u,

I don't live in Canada, but I am a German to English translator, and there is something I'd like to ask you.

The above sentence is not really grammatically correct in English. Are you sure you want to work with English as your target language? Is English your first language or mother tongue? You should probably think about this before you consider working as a German to English translator.

Best regards,
Niraja

German>English or English>German? Jan 4, 2008

Apart from the above question, which I think is a valid one, German>English full-time jobs are much more difficult to come by, at least in the US, than English>German jobs. I have only ever heard about one in-house German>English job (legal translation) here during my whole career, whereas I do hear about English>German jobs being advertised now and then by agencies, software companies, etc.
