Internships in Translation in New York

Here are just a few examples of sectors our translation interns have worked in before:

  1. Government & Politics

    People in government need to be able to communicate effectively with the communities they serve. Depending on the office or department they are assigned to, interns may gain the experience of translating documents/policies or interpreting for people face to face. 

  2. Education

    Translation internships in the education sector may involve carrying out a range of responsibilities, including interpreting for staff, students, and parents in schools, and preparing written translations of educational materials. Whatever your role, an internship in this field will help you improve your communication skills.

  3. Science

    If you have a scientific background and are fluent in more than one language, your skills as a translator will always be in high demand in this industry. Translation interns in scientific roles are frequently asked not just to produce accurate translations of scientific documents and proofread them for clients, but also to highlight any errors in the original language text, meaning you must understand the texts you are working on.

  4. Financial Services

    Our translation interns have previously worked with some of the top financial services companies in New York. If you are multilingual and have a good understanding of the way this industry works, you should strongly consider applying for a translation internship within a financial services company. If successful, your responsibilities may include translating documents both ways, while preserving the original context of the report; flagging up any content-related issues to your project manager; proofreading and fact-checking information and statistics, as well as maintaining a glossary of terms and phrases.

“Sometimes when you’re looking for an internship it’s hard to find somewhere where you’re doing the actual work. If you don’t show up a day it doesn’t really affect anything but here you’re actually a part of a team where you can see the work you’ve done.“
