English to German translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:journeyman
this sentence has been translated to English from German
"....the status “journeyman”, who seek training to be a master of their craft."
I assume it is similar to apprentice. What is (or may be) the original German word please?
Explanation: a Geselle is a person in (vocational/trade) training normally for about three years. This period of training is completed with a "Gesellenpruefung". The person then needs to practice his/her trade for five years before aspiring to become a Meister (master). Again, a "Pruefung" is required.
