5 Translating sentences
Translation involves transferring MEANING, so first understand the German sentence Identify business terminology and collocations for which you have learnt equivalents Look for obvious ‘traps’, eg false friends, tenses, prepositions, modals, word order Remember – it’s the the meaning that matters; if you can’t think of a direct equivalent for a word or phrase, try to paraphrase

6 Exercise 6.2.3 C: Model Versions
Normally we advertise our own vacancies. This time, however, we are having the job ad drawn up by a personnel consultancy. The Head of Personnel said that we did not need to recruit any more workers. If he had applied for the job, we would certainly have shortlisted him.

7 Exercise 6.2.3 C: Model Versions
At present, we are training employees who have recently been promoted My contract of employment states that my employer must reimburse all expenses I incur on behalf of the firm at the end of each month.

8 Exercise 6.3.1 C4: Model versions
Some candidates present themselves very well in an interview. They take no responsibility for the consequences of appointing someone they have recommended for a post. If the information in all CVs were checked thoroughly, I believe that in most cases it would turn out to be inaccurate, at least in part. The recruitment process is full of risks for non-specialists.

9 Exercise 6.3.2: Model versions
… be aware, our company’s labour turnover is currently much too high. As a result, our recruitment costs are also extremely high. … therefore adopting certain measures aimed at increasing employees’ job satisfaction, as well as the effort they put into their work. … survey we have conducted, the main problems perceived by workers are that their wages are too low and that they lack motivation because of the routine nature of their work.

10 Exercise 6.3.2: Model versions
… we are adopting two measures relating to earnings. First, workers will be paid bonuses for achieving their monthly targets. Second, they will receive a substantial wage increase after three years with our firm. In addition, employees will receive training to ensure that they work effectively, and a job rotation system will be introduced that will, of course, include provision for further training .
