Job Prospects for German Language Learners

Due to globalization of the Indian economy, the demand for learning foreign languages is on the rise. ITES (Information Technology Enabled Service) and Outsourcing have brought a lot of job opportunities paving the way for the learning foreign languages.


German is the native language of more than 100 million people in Europe and is spoken as a foreign language by over 75 million people worldwide. Learning German has opened up job prospects in Germany as well as in multinational companies.

Here’s one use case:

If a company has an office in Germany and the job applicant has the knowledge of German language as an add-on skill then the company is likely to offer placement to that candidate. This is because they don’t have to spend on training the candidate on German language.

Why Should You Learn German?

Millions of people across the globe are learning German. Here are some reasons:

Business Growth:  If you’re a company with German business partners then learning their native language will help you establish an effective communication with them. This would certainly improve your business relations.

Tourism and Hospitality: Learning German can help tour guides and hospitality staff to look after the tourists from Germany or other German speaking countries.

Research: Germany is the third largest contributor in global scientific research which makes German the second most widely used scientific language.

Communication: Growth in global media and information technology has led to an increasing need of multilingual writers and translators. A lot of books are published in German and hundreds of websites use German for writing content.

Culture: Learning German can bring you closer to culture, music, art and philosophy of people in German speaking countries.

Study/work abroad: Learning German can help you if you’re planning to study or work in a German speaking country.

Job Opportunities

Knowledge of German language has opened up job opportunities in the field of education, mass media, entertainment, tourism, information technology and outsourcing.

One popular job is Translation. The work of a translator is to translate a source language into a target language. To do this, he/she should have a clear understanding of both the languages. A number of big MNCs and government organizations need translators. If you are highly skilled in translation then you can even work with the Indian National Scientific Documentation Centre (INSDOC), Delhi. German translators can also work with translation bureaus and global organisations like UNO & FAO.

Here are the major career opportunities with learning German:

  • German Language Trainer: You can work as a language trainer with institutes and colleges.
  • German translator for MNCs and Government Organizations: You can work with both private and government organizations by providing translation and interpretation services.

  • Hospitality industry: You can work as guest relations executive at hospitality management centers.
  •  Media: You can work as a content writer for publishing media and websites.
