We are looking for young, motivated individuals to join our team on an internship basis, which if successful may turn into a permanent collaboration. What we expect We need you to be motivated and well-organised. You may be expected to deal with our customers, so you need to possess good communication skills in English and a pleasant manner. You are required to remain polite and professional at all times, especially if your main interest is interpreting. You also need efficient organisational skills. You must be able to plan your work while dealing with our orders, and always meet the established deadlines. Moreover, you should be hungry for knowledge!
You need to keep an open mind and possess the desire to always learn new things, always look for ways to perform better and improve the standards of your work. Language is a living thing, it changes and adapts constantly, so you need to keep your finger on the pulse to ensure your skills and vocabulary remain up-to-date. It is also desirable to develop an interest in a particular field, like financial, medical or technical translations or interpretations, to focus on the area in question and slowly develop an expertise in the matter. This will really come in handy for your future professional translating or interpreting career. What you will receive You will be presented with a great opportunity to gain valuable, practical experience and build-up your translating or interpreting portfolio.
The process will help you develop the skills required in the industry, as well as prepare you better for any professional qualifications you may pursue in the future. Finally, it will give you a real taste of what it means to work as a translator on a daily basis. Great references will be given upon successful completion of the internship.
