Week 6 as an intern at Lingua Translations – Calum

Week 6

I can’t believe that I’m halfway through my internship! Six weeks have gone by so quickly!!

I’ve learnt so much over the past six weeks. I’ve developed so many skills that aren’t just useful for a career in the translation industry but for all types of jobs in the world of business.

I now feel at ease liaising with clients and translators in a professional, friendly manner.  I no longer panic when a new email lands in my mailbox and hope that if I refresh the page it will have disappeared or have answered itself! At the risk of losing all of my ‘street cred’ I now actually enjoy arriving back from lunch with a full inbox of unread messages! 🙂

I’ve gained so much practical experience during these short six weeks that will definitely help with any future career. I’m proud of the way in which I’ve dealt with different stressful situations and stumbling blocks as a project manager but still managed to provide solutions, meet deadlines and ensure customer satisfaction.

Using WordBee, a project management tool that I never thought I’d be able to get to grips with, has become second nature. I can set up projects, create invoices and quotes, send translations to translators etc. confidently and with ease.

I’m looking forward to seeing what new skills I will learn over the next 6 weeks and improving on what I’ve already learnt!

About Julia Graham

I have a BA in French from Swansea University and spent a year in Toulouse studying at the Université de Toulouse. It’s no surprise that I also love languages! I also speak Welsh as my second language ? I am considered the office organiser as I love to keep things just so and I am also considered to be very much a perfectionist – I fit right in with my fellow language geeks. Every day is fascinating and I love working as part of our team, we are well known for being friendly and of course, we know what we are talking about.
