I have an agenda. I need to translate my Job education into english, in a way so it actually makes sense. I have completed a german apprenticeship as Restaurantfachmann and Hotelkaufmann. Now to translate Restaurantfachmann as a waiter would really be an insult. I have had an english translation - as being a commercial assistant in the Hotel and Catering trade. Assistant - spare me, especially when this job does not even exist anywhere. Somewhere I read Restaurant Operations Trainee and F&B Trainee any other suggestions? Any experience you have had trying to get a job in an english speaking country eg AUSTRALIA. How would you translate Hotelkaufmann?

Any other hoteljobs sensibly translated might make be useful for a lot of readers, wanting to work in an english speaking country.

In my CV I used: German apprenticeship to/as hotel specialist
I found this translation somewhere in the web, but there is no official translation for our professions 😀 . Basically if you write it like that people will know.

For Kaufmann I have no Idea

I am pretty sure that clerk is the english word for "kaufmann"! 🙂

Well, I would not suggest to use the translation "Hotel clerk" for Hotelkaufmann. For me it sounds only like "Hotel Angestellter" which is a downgrade in my eyes.

how would u guys translate the following?

(hoch-)anspruchsvolles gästeklientel

would "highly sophisticated guest clientele" be a reasonable translation?

I think that you think too complicated. In the daily use you are talking about guests/clients with a very high expectation (to the service standart...) bla bla

I work in a 5 Star hotel and I never heard anybody using "sophisticated" before, I think that this word is not matching at all

Does anyone have an idea for "Hotelfachfrau"? Can I use the same translation as "Hotelkauffrau" (i don´t think so)...

As mentioned, I would use Hotel Specialist, because that's what you actually are

I just updated my CV:

Education:
2004 – 2007 “Berufliche Schule XXX”
(Hotel & Tourism School) - combined school and work- program
Qualification: German Degree of Profession as Hotel Specialist
Graduated 6 Months earlier because of exceptional performance

Under the part Working Expierence I put it again, just with my Job responsibilities.

I think it sounds more high, but is still the truth. What are you thinking about that?
