On Monday the 3rd of June, 2M and the Export Council Of Australia led a Defence Industry event in Brisbane where they shared precious information to Queensland Defence companies on how to use translation and interpreting services while ensuring personnel security compliance, information confidentiality and network security which are crucial to their activities.

UWA call for work placements for their Chinese native students

As part of their two-year Master of Translation studies, students have to undertake an unpaid, six-week work placement at the end of their first year of studies. It is a physical placement where students are part of a team, and contribute to the various tasks involved in the translation process. The Master is endorsed by NAATI for certification as Professional and Advanced translators.

For this year, we are looking for hosts for our Chinese native-speaking students.

Apart from the theoretical units, the course provides training in translation from and into English, and in the use of SDL-Trados, Memo-Q and corpus-based translation. Students also take a course in Ethics and professional conduct.

Should your company be able to offer such a work experience, your duties would consist in supervising the student and submitting a brief evaluation report at the end of the internship. Students have to submit a diary and reflexive report marked by UWA.

Don’t hesitate to contact the course coordinator (Helene Jaccomard helene.jaccomard@uwa.edu.au) for further information.
