Translation Internship in Birmingham, UK

My experience at Absolute Interpregting and Translations Ltd


My name is Patricia and I come from Spain. I have been a translator intern at Absolute Interpreting and Translations Ltd for 3 months and today is my last day as an intern in here.

I still do not believe that the time had gone by that fast, it basically flew. I do remember the first day I stepped into this Company three months ago now. I felt so nervous and extremely happy at the same time. I knew that it was going to be an experience that I would definitely always remember.

Back in Spain, I have completed a Degree in Translation and Interpreting and also a Master in Translation and Interpreting in Public Services so you could understand my enthusiasm on working in a company that provides Translation and Interpreting services. At Absolute Interpreting and Translations Ltd, I have had the opportunity of translating different kind of documents as well as interpreting at Hospitals, Mental Health Centres, etc. I have also learnt how to be a project translation manager and deal with both translators and interpreters over the phone.

I could spend the whole day here telling you guys about my experience at Absolute  Interpreting and Translations Ltd but I am going to sum up. The most important thing that you all should know is that this is an experience that I definitely recommend you to have.

After this experience I can say that I am experienced enough to work in any Translation and Interpreting Company. An important thing that you need to know is that you will also need to work hard and sometimes under pressure which it is a good thing since it will help you to develop your skills.

If you are able to deal with situations where you need to be completely focused and putting a lot of effort, you will be able to handle every kind of situation.

To conclude my speech, I will like to thank Emal and Sohaela to have given me the opportunity to work with them and grow as a person. I will also never forget my colleagues who I have worked with and shared very good moments.

I hope to see you soon!
