iGerman Language Matters, a comprehensive German language service, was created in 2008 by Ina Brachmann. The name stands for individually tailored service, linguistic & professional knowledge and carefully crafted outcomes & results.
I hold a Masters Degree in German Language and Literature with focus on Lexicology and Orthography and a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching German as a Foreign Language from the Goethe-Institut, Germany. I am also a qualified Sociologist. Additionally, I hold Postgraduate Certificates in Translation from the University of the West of England, Bristol and City University, London and a 120-hour TEFL certificate, Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
I have undertaken various assignments in multilingual international environments requiring me to communicate, facilitate, hire staff, calculate budgets, develop project reports from qualitative and quantitative research, present to fellow international colleagues, organize conferences, write PR news releases, train Russian emigrants, undertake sociological fieldwork (interviews with apprentices, company directors and politicians), write and read the News for a local radio station, host international academic visitors and work with incorporation services and local governmental bodies.
In 2008, I have created iGerman Language Matters. Since then, I have built several productive and long lasting relationships with international groups, small and medium sized companies, individuals and carefully selected language service/language training providers.
Assignments range from press release to product information, from slogan to speech, from corporate communication to charity and from tourism to textile. My communication and organisational skills go hand in hand with outstanding customer service and a professional language education in German and English.
I offer German and English translations, German texts, German online language training and business services in English and German for companies and individuals to widen their circles and welcome a German speaking audience.
