Internship position: Translation and Project Management
July – August 2021

I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this amazing opportunity of getting a taste of how it’s like to work in a translation company. Our meetings used to take place either on-site or online and they were informative or practical, the atmosphere was laid-back and amiable and the staff kindly answered all of our questions.

This tremendous experience helped me to get acquainted with the importance and utility of CAT tools (such as Trados, Memsource) through completing different mini-projects (translation, revision & subtitling) on various fields, while tackling the managerial side of a translation project as well. Besides the projects in the fields of medicine, law and marketing, I also got the appealing task of translating the company’s website into Romanian.

Equally important, I got the chance to meet and work both individually and in a team with the kindest and friendliest people.

Thank you YTranslations team for this memorable internship! ?
