Staff News: "au revoir" to one of our wonderful work placements

This month we are very sad to be saying au revoir to one of our wonderful work placements, Goulven Hecht. We know that one day he will make a fantastic translator and wish him all the best with his future plans. Here is what he had to say about his time at Atlas…

“The past three months have gone so fast, and I feel like I moved to the UK just yesterday. My placement at Atlas is now coming to an end, and I would like to thank the whole team for the warm welcome I was given. It has been a pleasure to learn more about freelance translation and to see how a translation agency deals with projects. I now realise the amount of work translation projects may involve. I have learnt many things and everyone has always been keen to support me in my tasks. I will miss the Atlas team and this beautiful town and country, but I’m sure I will be back some day!”
