Our internship flashback from the pre-quarantine days!

Translation, localization and mentoring at Translatel have now moved online. The transition has been exciting, successful, challenging. Check out our internship flashback from the pre-quarantine days.
If an internship is about fetching coffee for someone else, it’s definitely not Translatel’s case. Our “Enter Intern” strategy suggests the key takeaways that a student gets upon completion of the internship. Our interns don’t just sit back and witness a company at work. Instead, they do real tasks in a real-world environment. Translatel encourages all peers to give students the opportunity to get insight into localization industry, to shadow your employees and to make the right choices regarding future career options. The benefits are invaluable!
Looking forward to new interns, expanding of our team and growing together!
