I had a fantastic time working for Atlas. I loved being part of such a strong team and really appreciated the level of responsibility handed to me. I particularly enjoyed the translating, proofreading and amending tasks I was asked to do; I also really liked dealing with clients. I got so much out of the placement, and was especially happy to be promoted to Team Leader.
Kate, from the UK | completed a placement way back in 2006, and now works for Atlas Translations as a freelance translator
One of the things that made the placement such a worthwhile experience was the wide range of practical things I learned. Things that you don’t really learn at university. The majority of my placement was basic project management, plus some administrative and other ad hoc duties. Additionally, I was responsible for the translation of part of the company website from English into Spanish, the co-ordination of company courses and organisation of the Atlas Open Day for linguists. I further represented the company at three different language events. I learned from every single experience.
Marta, from Spain | worked with Atlas Translations on a placement and on temporary projects
My experience at Atlas was without any doubt interesting and very worthwhile. Working with the Atlas team was a great experience as they made me feel comfortable from the very first day. They carefully explained to me all the tasks I had to carry out and helped me through them. The placement involved a range of various tasks, from dealing with invoices and administrative work to checking translations carried out by professional translators. I really enjoyed dealing with private clients and professional translators and interpreters.
The three months at Atlas provided me with a better idea of how the translation industry works, and an opportunity not only to develop my professional skills but also to gain the confidence required to start my career in the translation industry.
Ilenia | worked with Atlas Translations on a three month placement; Ilenia regular works as a freelance translator with Atlas Translations now, translating into Italian
Doing an internship at Atlas Translations was an amazing professional experience for me because I learnt how a translation company works and now I have the skills to work as a project manager. Now I feel I’m ready to work as a professional in the translation industry and I believe this wouldn’t have been possible without taking the internship at Atlas. My colleagues were all very hard-working and really friendly, so a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend getting a placement at this company to any translation students or recent translation graduates who want to start building their career – they won’t regret being an Atlas member.
Isabel | six month work placement
I really enjoyed my placement at Atlas. There is always something to do, which is a good thing, and I have learnt a lot about the translation world – even really simple things such as finding out how you charge clients and how linguists charge us has been really interesting. The thing that surprised me most was how quickly translators are required to work to meet deadlines. I also really enjoyed placing translations, especially for unusual projects. I have definitely learnt a lot and have realised that it is a good idea to learn more about the industry before trying to set yourself up as a freelance translator. It has been really worthwhile in that sense. It has helped me to decide what I want to do in the future and also provided me with an insight into the industry and the work of a Project Manager – so thank you!
