Dear Ms. Graham,

We are a small but rapidly growing company that works as a close team. We require two students interested in learning the translation project management role as work placements. The students will have an opportunity to work in a full service translation agency assisting the Project Managers with the management of single and multi-language projects from receipt of the order trough to final delivery. This is a stimulating international environment with a very motivated team. Reporting to the assigned Project Manager they will have tasks and responsibilities including:

- Liaison with Linguists
- Editing and proof-reading of original and translated texts
- Detailed quality checking of all types of documents
- Preparation of glossaries and translations memories
- Working to deadlines
- Any other duties as may reasonably be required
- Organising multi – lingual conferences
- Booking interpreters
- Hours of work 9am – 6pm with an hour of lunch break.

We would prefer if the students are proficient in the following languages: Spanish, French, Brazilian Portuguese, however it is not essential. I do hope that I will hear from you soon. The successful candidate will work in a relaxed semi-formal office environment. If you have any questions for me please do not hesitate to contact me on 08450347004.

Kind Regards,

Vase Koleva
Project Manager
