Typical roles for Ireland translation internships

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

  • Simultaneous Interpreter

    Simultaneous interpreters are skilled at understanding and memorizing the words of a source-language speaker, and then immediately processing and delivering those words in the target language. Interns gaining experience in simultaneous translation must be able to process language efficiently and confidently, to keep up with the original speaker. Simultaneous interpretation is common in large, international meetings, court proceedings, and conference presentations.

  • Travel Interpreter

    A travel interpreter assists a client through their travels abroad, often for business matters. An intern in travel interpretation may be required to attend business meetings, translate the proceedings for their client, as well as assist in navigating the foreign environment, e.g. ordering food or asking for directions. Travel interpreters must be comfortable with specialized vocabulary, to accurately translate languages for their clients.

  • Health and Medical Translator

    Working in healthcare institutions, such as aged care facilities or hospitals, translators in this field must be able to understand the medical jargon, while also being able to communicate it accurately to the patient in layman’s terms. Interns in health and medical translation may be required to translate pharmaceutical and medicinal information, explain medical conditions or test results, and translate patient history interviews.
