We assist young people seeking to pursue a career in translation by offering a six-month internship for graduates of translation and interpreting studies in the relevant language combinations. The internship begins with an introduction to the company's organisational structure, philosophy and the quality management system according to the current standards ISO 9001 and ISO 17100, which covers all areas of work in a translation company.
In addition to familiarisation with the hardware and software most frequently used in the Translation and Customer Service departments, an introduction is given in the complete order processing system from start to finish.
In the Quality Management department we provide an introduction to quality control, documented procedures and work instructions in the areas of order administration, translation and quality control, as well as documentation to ensure traceability of orders and assessment of individual translators.
With regard to practical translation work itself, the emphasis is on terminology research in various databases and in the Internet, translation of different types of text, proofreading and localisation work (using translation tools and other utilities), assessment of proof-read texts and revision of translations.
The objective is to give you a comprehensive insight into the everyday work of the translator in the context of a translation company operating a quality management system.
If you take up an internship with us, you will receive appropriate remuneration for your work.
In addition, if you demonstrate the required aptitude, we may be able to offer you a permanent job at the end of the internship.
