Typical roles for Hong Kong foreign language internships

Here are a few examples of roles that our translation interns in Hong Kong have taken on before:

  • Translator

    Translators could be considered scientists as much as artists, as it is an incredibly complex task. To become a good translator, you should already possess some of the most critical skills for this role, such as complete fluency in your chosen languages, and a very high level of written and verbal communication skills.

  • Translation Reviewer

    The main responsibility of a translation reviewer is to double-check translations before they are delivered to a client. Translation reviewers ensure the quality, style, consistency, and tone of the translations is appropriate, and they have the final approval of the translation.

  • Translation Editor

    As a translation editor, you will be responsible for editing any typographical errors throughout a text. This role is perfect for those who have excellent attention to detail and expert knowledge of subject matters, as this enhances the quality of the translation.

  • Translation Consultant

    Translation consultants are also known in the industry as translation professionals. If you want to put your linguistic skills to the test, you should opt for this role. You will consult translators to ensure that the translation means the same as the original text.
