Are you a languages graduate wondering how you can get started in the translation industry? Or a student hoping to gain some practical experience?
We’re very excited to be launching our first ever translation internship program. We’re looking for talented, enthusiastic, aspiring translators to work with our experienced linguists for a three month period. You’ll get to experience all aspects of working for a global translation agency, with plenty of advice on building your career.
Each translator intern will get training on our cutting-edge computer-assisted translation software, and other marketable skills such as Translation Memory management and search engine optimisation (SEO). They’ll be working alongside some of our longest-serving professional linguists, completing simple translations, and getting feedback on improving their work.
The internship is intended to be “remote” so you can work from home anywhere in the world. We’ve designed it to be flexible, so you work for two to four hours a day and fit tasks into your schedule. Although it’s unpaid, we hope to continue working with our interns. We’ll offer paid work to those who successfully complete the internship, and continue to support them as they develop their careers.
Interested? If you’re a native speaker of English, German, French, Italian, or Spanish, with great communication, computer and organisational skills, we’d love to hear from you! Find out more about becoming a translator intern here, or get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
