Translator internship in COMUNICA

Hopp til hovedinnhold

COMMUNICA offers now an exciting internship at Danish-owned translation agency in Málaga. We are currently looking to recruit one or two translator-interns for a period of 3-6 months.

We can offer you a focused internship in the intense and very dynamic translation industry. You will receive training in the industry’s most innovative CAT tools and gain an insight into what it means and takes to work as a professional translator.

  • Would you like to combine practical work experience with a stay abroad?
  • Would you like to be part of a young and dynamic team?
  • Do you love languages and translating? And maybe writing texts?
  • Are you outgoing and positive by nature?

If you can answer YES to all the above, then the internship position at COMUNICA is definitely something for you. COMUNICA typically has two interns a year for a period of 3-6 months. The intern’s primary function will be to carry out translation projects from English into their mother tongue, but there is also an opportunity to practise other skills like for instance writing skills with copywriting tasks, project coordination and various marketing tasks.

We are primarily interested in students, who have studied Translations Studies with a focus on the English language, or Language Studies. Some knowledge of Spanish is a bonus but not a requirement.

Why do an internship?

Working as an intern is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable work experience as well as create networks and achieve coherence between theory and practice. An internship is therefore a valuable contribution to your CV and can be "the little extra" that sets you apart from the crowd.

What can COMUNICA offer you?

We make a point of being able to offer you relevant work experience and to give you a taste of what a career in the translation industry entails. In addition to interesting and challenging work tasks, you will receive a thorough introduction and continuous training by our experienced employees. You will also be trained in memoQ and SDL Trados Studio, the two market leading CAT tools in the industry, which you will work with daily. In addition, you will be working in a young and vibrant working environment with good opportunities to get involved in many interesting and exciting tasks. Examples of tasks: Translation tasks (mainly from English into your mother tongue), proofreading and copywriting as well as planning and carrying out marketing activities, including social media.

Who should apply?

We prioritise translation and language students, who are native speakers of one of the Scandinavian languages and whose focus is on the English language. You must be able to speak and write fluent English, whereas Spanish is not a requirement. You can apply at any point in your course of study.

Requirements:

It is a minimum requirement that you have familiarised yourself with the typical grammar and spelling rules of your mother tongue and the additional language(s) you have studied.

General information:

    • Duration of stay: Generally 3 to 6 months, but we are also very interested in candidates, who can stay longer.
    • Intake: As soon as possible or when it fits into your course of study.
    • Housing / lodging: You are responsible for finding your own

      accommodation, but COMUNICA is happy to assist with this process.

  • Contribution: €500 net payment per month.

ERASMUS:

We highly recommend that you apply for an Erasmus grant to supplement your income. All our interns have been successful in obtaining either an internship or a traineeship grant.

Application process:

Please send your application with CV and photo to: interns@comunica.dk. The application must include the following information:

  • Reference to where you found the job advertisement
  • Tasks you would like to work on and what you can offer
  • Time period during which you are able to work
  • CV with details of education, latest grades, work experience and relevant courses.

Application expiration date: 1st of July 2020. This is an open recruiting process throughout this semester. However, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will be renewing it in the autumn semester.

We look forward to receiving your application! If you are selected as an intern candidate, we will send you a short translation test as part of the vetting process.
