MITS student undertakes internship with partner international organisation ACA

A student from the Master of Translation and Interpreting Studies has recently had the opportunity to complete a one-week internship within the headquarters of the Hobart-based ACAP, the Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels. The three official working languages of this international organisation are English, French and Spanish, and the internship was an opportunity for the student to gain experience about the work of in-house translators in the fields of environmental science and conservation.

It is the fourth consecutive year that MITS students are offered such a wonderful opportunity. The Translation and Interpreting Studies program and the students are really grateful and thankful to ACAP for their support, and in particular to its Executive Secretary Marco Favero and its Science Officer Wieslawa Misiak.

As Marco Favero said: “The students had the opportunity to gain practical experience with ACAP to fine-tune their translation skills. At the same time, it was a great opportunity for ACAP to contribute to the education of translators, and in the process help to prepare them for a career as translators“.
