German term or phrase: Berufsbezeichnungen
From a CV: Maler und Lackierer: is painter and decorator equivalent? Geselle: my dictionary says Journeyman. Is there any more frequently used term? Sicherungssoldat?
Any internet refs giving equivalents for jobs, qualifications and military grades would be helpful as this sort of thing keeps cropping up - thanks!

English translation:painter
Explanation:
"Maler und Lackierer" is the complete Berufsbezeichnung for that particular Handwerk - you'll find lots of hits with a Google search on "Maker und Lackierer". I would not add decorator since a Maler und Lackierer really doesn't do much more than paint your house (apartment).

Geselle - journeyman
Here are a few examples:

Works with the journeyman Painter, as instructed. (10%) Tasks: 1. Assists a higher grade Painter or ...

Painter Supervisor - [ Neu! Diese Seite übersetzen ]
... and maintained during incumbency and five years of experience as a Journeyman Painter

As far as the Sicherungssoldat goes, BMVg gives Sicherungsstaffel - Security Squadron. Maybe "soldier in a security squadron" would work?

Hope this will be of some help. Good luck.

Explanation:
I too am a "Geselle" (amongst other things). In a CV I have never (and would never) call myself a jouneyman. I always refer to myself as an indentured tradesman.

Alt.: skilled tradeaman
