Hi, my name is Bernd

I'm living in Germany, overseas from your side. I also joined the list
yesterday, and I hope not to be boring by writing nonsense here.


Don't expect too much from the Internet, because of e.g., in Germany
internet is available but the usage of internet is poor yet. That's why you
will seldom find job announcements in the internet. The costs of internet
are very high, and only few people have private internet access. Only very
few offices hire their staff here using internet.

May be, you should contact an employment office, or companies in your
country with offices in the other countries.


Some of my experiences as technical writer:
I'm working in a company preparing manuals in English language. The main
difficulties were not in using the language, even if I made some
The main difficulties are to get the appropriate information about the
program to describe, and how it works.
I was happy to work together with technical writers coming from Canada, and
from other countries. I did not feel, they had a cultural shock. I learned
a lot more of English during the last three years, and I'm happy now to
speak 2 languages.
I spent some weeks in Canada too, and it was a time I don't want to miss.
(Unfortunately I cannot speak Russian although I tried to learn it in school.)
When I started it was a great help that proof reading was done by people
originally speaking English.

In my office people from many countries are working, and this is seldom in
old re-unified Germany.

So I wish you luck
