We combine our commercial German language services with a social media driven programme to inspire people, communities and businesses to have a go at speaking German.
We can help you or your business overcome difficulties with language, helping you to trade freely with German companies and individuals.
GermanSpeaking.org is a project created by me, David Marshall. I enjoyed learning languages from an early age at primary school, and went on to study French and German (BA) at Cardiff University. I also had the opportunity to work as a British Council English Language Assistant in a German school – an amazing experience with some fantastic people, and great fun too.
After graduating over 10 years ago, I started working for Atradius Collections, a global credit management company based in Cardiff. Alongside my main duties working in the Sales team, it was here that I began to take my first steps towards becoming a translator as part of the internal Translation Network.
Opportunities began to arise, and in 2010 I officially began working as a freelance German to English translator. Nowadays, I am based in the beautiful South Hams in Devon, England. I translate all sorts of texts, including financial, legal, technical and commercial documents (nothing too specialist though) and I have a good working knowledge of translation software such as SDL Trados, Across, Memsource and TStream.
Our aim is to help stimulate a change in attitude towards language learning and also explore the commercial opportunities that may arise for me as a fluent German speaker.
I was inspired to come up with GermanSpeaking.org as there is huge potential for individuals and companies, particularly those based here in the South West of England, to develop their German language skills and gain that extra edge when dealing with native German speakers. German is not a popular subject to learn at school, yet it is such a critical language to learn both culturally and economically, and it's surprisingly fun too!
