- Anastasia, what impressions did you have from your internship at the Admiral Prime translation agency?

- At the interview, the director of the translation agency Alina Suslina explained to us the specifics of the work, the requirements for translating texts, and guided us on working with certain dictionaries. Success largely depends on the ability to establish the right relationships, accepted recommendations and requirements. This practice revealed to me the importance and seriousness of the translation profession. In my opinion, translating texts of various industries and thematic areas requires full dedication, complete expenditure of mental, physical and spiritual strength. After completing this internship, I strengthened my translation skills, organizing my free time, and communicating with colleagues.

- Yulia, how well is the translation activity organized at the Antey International translation center?
    For two weeks I completed an industrial (translation) internship at the Translation Center headed by Andriy Lipskyi. Personally, my friends and I received positive impressions from communicating with the director, the creative atmosphere, and attention to us. We spent a productive time preparing and checking the completed translation of texts several times. I mostly worked on translating legal tests, in particular agreements and contracts of various types. We have improved our knowledge of translation practice. Students have significantly expanded their terminology and vocabulary in general. I hope that the acquired skills and abilities will be useful to all participants of the educational process in the future.

    Interns prepared informative and informative reports on the internship with slides and videos. The experience gained together with our impressions will expand our knowledge and help us adapt to our future professional activities.
