Hannah recently graduated from university and was looking to gain some professional experience in the industry while in the process of applying for jobs. She shadowed Jo for a period of four weeks, working on some translation jobs, getting to understand our systems and processes and familiarising herself with translation software and resources. She is now working as a Bilingual Customer Services Operator so her skills are being put to good use!
Anna is currently studying for her A-levels and is planning to read Modern Foreign Languages at university. She has been exploring various career options and was keen to find out more about life as a freelance translator. She spent a day here learning about what our work involves and we gave her some advice on how to gain the necessary skills and further experience if she does decide to pursue a career in translation.
It's great to meet young people that are enthusiastic about languages and translation, whatever stage of education they are at, and to be able to give them some help, advice and encouragement along the way!
