Traineeships for translation students

For several years, our company has provided pro bono training to translation students of the UNESCO Chair for Translation Studies and Intercultural Communication of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków and the Pedagogical University in Kraków. We provide tutorship to several future translators each year. The theoretical part of the training covers the tricks of the trade, the use of references, the importance of erudition in translation, and the specificities of various EU-related and other jobs. As a rule, during the practical part students translate sample documents and review them interactively with the tutor at the office. Some students are also provided an opportunity to join teams of simultaneous interpreters in the booth and listen to their performance during real-life events.
