Topic: Internships at FaustTranslationsJanuary 6th, 2021 by Christian Faust - Posted in English
In a number of previous articles, we had already reported on the opportunities to complete translation internships with us.
Corona has practically enforced doing internships remotely. This remote offer has in the meantime really proved to be a good idea. There are several cooperations between FaustTranslations and colleges and universities in Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and France. Currently, we already have pre-registrations up to mid 2021!
At this time, Ms. Julie Piccini, who studied at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona and who had to interrupt her studies because of the Corona situation, has just finished her internship with us.
The 25-year-old Luxembourger is passionate about languages, enjoys learning about new cultures and people, and loves travelling the world as much as she loves being out in nature.
What does Julie think about her internship at FaustTranslations?
How did you like the internship?
“I really enjoyed the internship overall. I was allowed to take on many different tasks and translate and proofread very different texts.“
What was not so good, what was missing?
“It was a bit of a shame that the Covid situation meant that the social part of the internship was missing, but unfortunately that can’t be helped.“
What was the most important thing you learned?
“I think the most important thing were the things you can really only ever learn through an internship: the everyday professional life of a translator. So, specifically, the client’s requirements, interacting with fellow freelancers you don’t know, and how to get to the best possible solution even in difficult cases.“
What was your experience with Smartcat?
“A very intuitive program that works very well most of the time and which is quite accessible.“
Last but not least:
“Thank you for this taster opportunity, and for the trust and feedback! It was a pleasure working with you :-)”
For our part, we thank Julie for her support and are pleased that she has already found employment in Luxembourg. Good luck on the rest of your life journey, Julie!
