Andreas von Bubnoff has published an article about the “challenges of bilingual reporting and writing” for the Science Writers’ Handbook. He mentions John Riceburg:

John Riceburg, a Berlin-based journalist who writes in English and German, says German legal terms can also be a challenge: Recently, he interviewed young Spanish teachers in Berlin, who teach in English. The interview was mostly in Spanish, but they were using German for all the legal terms that don’t have precise equivalents in other languages, he says. One example: “Yo soy angestellte Lehrkraft,” which means “I am a teacher without a tenured position.”
