I've always been passionate with words and writting, and received enthusiast feedbacks when I worked as a journalist in our regional newspaper back in France.

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. I continuously further my education not only in the linguistic area but also in areas such as software development and financial topics to be able to provide a broad spectrum of high quality translations. I have always been interested in foreign languages and have made those my priority in my studies. When I had the opportunity to move to the United States in 2004, I didn't hesitate, and have not regretted it since.
