Hello,

I am an Italian final year translation student - I will graduate in November in Technical and Scientific Translation, with English, Spanish and Italian.

I am living in Edinburgh at the moment and I would love to find an internhip position (or in-house position as well, but I have no experience at all apart from volunteer translations so I don't think it would be possible) anywhere in the UK.

Do you know of any agency that may be interested?

Any advice is very welcomeicon_smile.gif

Thank you all.
Chiara

Hi, (or should that be 'miao'?!)

I suppose you could start by putting together a list (or database) of companies / agencies which you are interested in - you need to do a bit of research here, of course - and then either write, e-mail or phone them directly and ask them what their policy is in regards to internships, or sponsoring / mentoring someone who wishes to enter the profession...

I would imagine that most (all?) translators keep lists of actual clients, former clients, potential clients, and clients they wouldn't touch with a barge pole (their own "blacklist" or Blue Board).

Would that be of any use to you?
