I am Tim Scholz, and I was recruited as a Customer Representative for the t’works group in June 2021 but also for lending a hand at content marketing every now and then.
One of my favorite topics to talk about: languages. You must probably think: then you’re in the right business! That’s right! And I didn’t even consider the localization industry as a workplace when I graduated from university, but I can identify with it perfectly now. Language captivates me somehow. It’s mesmerizing sometimes to be able to play with words, or how words can make you smile, laugh, cry, shout, or ponder endlessly. It’s more, one of the most fascinating things for me is to have a mother tongue (or even more than one). It’s not something common to muse about, but I am constantly reminded of it because my reality is multilingual.
I’ve been living in Spain since November 2017 in a bilingual context (Valencian – Spanish). But prior to leaving Germany I’ve already lived 10 months in the USA as a high school student, a year in France and a year in Spain during my Bachelor studies. German, English, and Spanish are the main languages I deal with every day. I’ve also studied French, Catalan, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, and Turkish to various degrees at school and university. It was and still is a challenge at times, but it is also enriching, keeps you mentally agile, and can also be fun!
To clear my head from all the language muddle, I love to do sports, especially running and swimming. But other sports like table tennis or badminton and hiking are activities that I also like to do.
