Do you have any good stories or examples on how I can secure a translation internship?
Yikes, no. Never went this route, so I don’t have any stories. Nonetheless, I can imagine how this would work. You get an internship in the translation business in the same way you get any kind of internship. List yourself and your resume at your college’s career center—and make sure that your resume is one page and professional. Talk to your professors. Sign up for LinkedIn, put your qualifications in, and mention your goal is an internship. Talk to friends and relatives, teammates and club colleagues. Network. Talk to anyone who might listen, including your boss at your school or summer job from the previous year. Cast your net wide, and you’ll catch something—perhaps even more than one something. Good luck.
