A planning meeting is held at the beginning of every internship as a translator. We rely on flat hierarchies and you will be involved in the planning process and the elaboration of the objectives. Together with you, we create a work plan for the entire internship period.
In weekly online meetings with your internship supervisor, your work results will be reviewed and the focus modified if necessary. Our standard internship lasts three months. If you would like to work for a different period, we can discuss this with you.
If we have aroused your interest in an internship as a translator with us and you are currently enrolled in a degree programme in translation and interpreting at a university, please send us your complete and informative application documents.
