CV is a key document in a job application. It contains the applicant’s personal data as well as information about their education, work experience and skills. A professionally designed CV should truly showcase the applicant and increase their chances of getting a desired job. If someone is applying for a job abroad, they should, naturally, submit their CV in a foreign language.

A professional CV should read as if it was originally written in the target language
Sometimes people who have a good command of a foreign language try to translate their CV on their own. Unfortunately, in such cases, their language skills may prove to be insufficient. One of the potential challenges is finding foreign equivalents for terms that are, by definition, untranslatable. Examples include academic titles and degrees, job positions or names of organizations, institutions and schools. Another problem is content layout. Every language has its own generic conventions which should not be copied in translation. Finally, there is a risk of transferring grammatical structures from the source to the target language. For example, in Polish CVs information on the applicant’s skills and work history is typically conveyed through non-clausal structures (noun phrases) while in English CVs past tense verb forms tend to be used (with personal pronouns missing).
This knowledge is indispensable in composing a CV in the target language. The translator’s work consists in transcreating the original content rather than in providing a highly accurate translation. Therefore, the right solution is to turn to professionals for assistance. The POZENA translators will compose a model CV that will showcase the client’s skills and abilities.
