Seeking passionate translators

We are looking for exceptional translators, who are passionate about languages, in love with words,
obsessed with always finding the expression that best conveys each idea.

Translation work placement at an agency.

Translation degrees are good, but they're normally too theoretical and not overly practical. The needs of real clients don't normally coincide with what professors and universities seem to think, as they normally promote the accuracy and literalness. This tends to lead to literal, stiff translations, with no hook or attraction...
Grow your translation skills by training with an agency.

Translation work placement in Barcelona

Now accepting applications for Trainee Translators for 2017 at our agency in Barcelona.
Translation students and graduates, native in English, French, German, etc.

Where would the work placement take place?

Work placement opportunities take place at our offices in Barcelona, located in the Eixample district, in a historic building right in the heart of the city. The area is charming and quiet, working in a small, young and friendly team, amidst a really relaxed work environment.

When do translation work placements take place?

This translation work placement programme is open for periods throughout 2017, mainly March, April, May, June, July, September, October and November. Ibidem Group generally publishes similar Work Placement Programmes each year.

How long do the Work Placement Programmes last for?

The minimum duration is 80 hours, preferably spread over one month, with half-day attendance from Monday to Friday. We do not accept work placements lasting less than one month, as this would not allow for proper use of the period.

Are these paid training programmes?

On principle, the work placement programmes are not paid by the agency, yet exceptions are made and there are also subsidised programmes depending on the language and/or the university of origin. However, for work placement programmes lasting 2 or 3 months, if the quality of the work is high, the agency normally offers economic compensation for expenses.

Applying for Work Placement Programmes

These programmes are aimed at students studying Translation, Philology, Applied Languages or other similar courses, who have studied Spanish as a foreign language. These are restricted to students in the last years of the degree or new graduates. It is imperative that your university has an Work Placement Agreement.

Languages and nationalities.

This translation work placement programme is open to students from all over the world, intra- or extra-EU, whose native language is English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Greek, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch, Romanian, Polish, Russian, Chinese or Japanese, and who want to improve their knowledge of Spanish. It is essential to have good written understanding of Spanish.

Purpose of the Work Placement Programme.

The purpose of the work placement is to perfect translation skills and to improve students' knowledge of the Spanish Language, in a real environment, within a translation agency.

Tasks to be performed.

The student will complete translations from Spanish into his/her native language, as well as translation from their native language into Spanish, if their level allows so. A supervisor will help on a daily basis regarding questions and queries, and on a weekly basis a person who is native in their language will provide feedback on the work performed.

Universities and Translation Schools
