Internships

Objectives and methods of implementation

Metafrasi regularly makes in-house internships available to undergraduates or recent graduates in foreign languages and translation.

Through a selection process designed to identify the most suitable candidates for an educational experience with the company, we offer the selected young people a professional and vocational path to initiate them into the world of specialized translation.

During this training period, the trainees are placed in the midst of the real working environment of the company and participate in the different phases of real translation projects that are carried out under the constant supervision of our project managers and translators. This way, we give each trainee the opportunity to gain the technical and operational skills through practical experience that immerses them in the world of linguistic services.

All activities are carefully monitored and assessed to allow the trainee to effectively develop professionally and to ensure that the company’s quality standards are upheld.

The trainee receives feedback from our translators and project managers from each project they take part in, with emphasis placed on both the technical aspects (CAT tools, text editing software, creating terminology databases and glossaries) and strictly translation-related aspects, with particular reference to the text types (patent translation, legal translation, marketing and advertising translation, manuals, transcreation) and the target market.

After an initial common phase, we customize the allocation of projects according to the specific nature and predispositions of the individual trainees, encouraging them to take up an area of specialization.

Since 2013, Metafrasi has been a partner of CE.FO.RS Training Organization in Marcianise (CE) for internships as part of the specialization course for “Intercultural and Linguistic Mediator for the European Union – English C1″, included in the Interregional Catalogue of Higher Education Courses.

Testimonials

Marilisa P. – March-April 2015

An internship with Metafrasi? Highly recommended! We interns were thrown straight into the action from the outset: practice, practice and more practice, all under the supervision of four expert translators who guided us through the training and were always ready to provide us with their experience and valuable advice. The environment is very calm and laid-back, which made it ideal for concentrating on work and getting the most out of the skills learned. A unique experience.
