Internship in Project Management
Irene Escudero Triguero
Internships as project manager
Language combinations: ES-EN/EN-ES/ES-FR
My internship at AltaLingua ran from November 2018 to mid-February 2019. Before doing the internship I had heard very little about the work of a project manager in a translation agency, but it was still the field I was most interested in within the translation world.
“From the first moment everything was easy”
I heard about AltaLingua from a very satisfied customer and decided to contact them to see if I could do the internship there. From the first moment everything was easy. The management of the company supported me with the decision to do an internship in management.
What I was looking for in the internship was to learn as much as possible in order to be prepared for the future, to see the translation industry in the real world with my own eyes and above all not to sit back and do nothing. Everything I wanted was far exceeded from minute one.
“I can only say that AltaLingua is not just a company but a big family”
Not only did they teach me how to manage projects using the latest project management tools such as Plunet, but they had confidence in me and gradually left me to work on my own. I also learned about the world of translation itself and how the Trados tool works, which is now almost indispensable if you want to devote yourself to this world. Layout, quotes, glossaries, or performing in front of an audience were some of the many skills I also acquired through practice.
I can only say that AltaLingua is not just a company but a big family. The two managers did everything in their power at all times to teach me and always with a smile. Not only them but also management, marketing and translators treat you with love from the first moment and help you whenever you need it so that you can gradually gain confidence in yourself.
I would certainly repeat my internship and work at AltaLingua in the future without any doubt.
