Week 9

I am very glad I went with the internship option for this module. I have been learning about the translation industry for years now but experiencing it first hand is a completely different story.

You get to truly understand how things work, why they work that way but not that other way. So much goes into translating one document and along the way you pick up new skills and improve on the ones you already have. The challenges you face along the way put your knowledge and skills into test. They make your learning experience so much richer as you are using your best judgement, which is based on everything you have learnt so far, into solving the problem at hand. Passive learning creates knowledge but active practice creates deeper understanding as well as new skills. That is why I think including practical experience in the form of internships in university curriculum’s should be made mandatory.

If you want an internship that will give you experience and an insight into the wonderful world of translation then contact Swansea University and join the elite!
