My first day working as an intern at Lingua Translations has arrived!

After weeks of feeling nervous and not knowing what to expect the day is finally here. As soon as I arrived today I was warmly welcomed and made to feel at ease. I have friendly and patient colleagues who were willing to answer any questions that Nada, my fellow intern, and I had. We were introduced to Wordbee, Lingua Translations’ CAT tool of choice, as well as the role of a PM. Right now Nada and I are rather confused (to be expected I’m told). There’s a lot of information to remember. I’m looking forward to getting to grips with project management and developing new skills.

Having spent the last few months translating texts as part of my MA, I’m now looking forward to experiencing the commercial side of the translation industry. As well as working with fellow linguists in a project management role. As a Law and French graduate, I’d like to gain more experience working with legal texts. I’m passionate about football and rugby. I am hoping that I’ll be able to work on some sport-related projects, especially with the Lions Tournament in New Zealand. I also hope that I’ll be able to fulfil the role of a project manager effectively and confidently by the end of the internship! Hopefully I’ll be able to learn about all aspects of working for a LSP not just those which are translation-related.

 

My first day has left me wondering why I was so nervous.
