Lucy’s week at Lingua Translations

Hello, my name is Lucy and I’m a postgraduate student of Interpreting and Translating. This week I have been fortunate to spend a week with Lingua Translations. Reaching the end of my MA course, I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to do next with my language skills. I was keen to find out about the workings of a translation and interpreting agency.

 

LinguaTranslations 200x138The week with Lingua Translations has given me an invaluable insight into all different aspects of translation and interpretation from an agency’s point of view. It has also introduced me to many other language services I had not previously considered. Such as multilingual re-branding and internationalisation. I have been able to gain a taste of project management, quality control, marketing and research. As well as a far greater understanding of the translation and interpreting industry, including its sheer scope and variety!

 

One thing that struck me about Lingua Translations is how much of a passion and interest everyone here has for all things related to language. This is definitely something that comes across in the Lingua Translations blog. I spent a very enjoyable few hours reading through previous posts. There’s such a variety of posts on here! I came across everything from translation theory to interesting cultural facts. The latest developments in the translation industry to fun and frivolous language news items. What a mix!

 

I would like to thank all of the staff at Lingua Translations for the friendly welcome I have received. As well as the invaluable advice and experience they have given me. The week here has really consolidated my passion for languages, and spurred me on in my quest to continue developing my language skills in a professional environment. Best of luck for the future, everyone!
