I decided to apply for a translation internship at Lingua Translations because it was the best opportunity to know more about the translation industry. Since I was a child, I was passionate about languages. That is why I decided to study a degree in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Málaga, Spain, which offered me the possibility to study several languages at the same time. I spent my final year in Brussels, where I was able to be in contact with the French language and gained experience as a volunteer interpreter. Then, I was really lucky to join Swansea University to study Translation Technology. My eagerness to join the translation industry in the future has increased even more since then, as we were able to have an insight into how a translation team would work. Besides, now that I am working at Lingua Translations as an intern, I can experience first hand how a translation company works.

I have always enjoyed translating because we have to deal with different challenges, either linguistic or cultural, such as the lack of equivalents in the different languages. But this is what makes translation even more interesting. Besides, we always have the chance to discover new cultural aspects that we were not aware of before and we are able to make communication possible between people from different countries. However, here at Lingua Translations I have the opportunity to discover a new side of the translation industry. It’s been one month and a half since I joined Lingua Translations as an intern and so far it has been a very rewarding experience.  I have been learning about the marketing side of the company, as well as project management, and I have realised that there is much more than just translating. Paperwork and emails are a big part of a translation project, and keeping social media and website content up to date is as important for a company to be successful nowadays. Moreover, Lingua Translations also promotes the importance of learning languages through Lingua Translations Academy, which I think it is a great initiative, as languages are essential in the job market.

I am looking forward to making the most of this experience!
