This EU-funded project aims at providing an on-line platform to implement international internships for advanced translation students. Translation companies have their own procedures to offer their internships and, at the same time, translation students try to find suitable opportunities for their practicum, but both do it by their own means. This platform is intended as a meeting point for both companies and students, so that they can match their profiles, requirements and jobs. Therefore, internship supply and demand match in a virtual environment: companies can contact interns and just the other way round, all via this web application. This project started in 2012 and will finish at the end of 2015 under the management of Università di Bologna..
The pilot project took place this year and has been a great success, not only providing those transnational internships, but also giving the chance to some of those interns to join the receiving companies as in-house employees after their internships.
EUATC has been mainly in charge of providing their network of national companies to make the offer of internships more fluid and flexible, as one of the main goals of EUATC is providing future translators a safe scenario to start to work in the professional world.

Welcome to the new EUATC website

On behalf of the board I am pleased to announce that the EUATC has new website.
My thanks go to my colleagues on the EUATC website working group. They have devoted many hours of their time to provide a site that looks fresher, is more flexible and works across social media platforms, including a new blog.
The site also contains more information about our ideas, targets and partnerships. Currently the most critical one of these is with the Directorate General Translation of the European Commission. The EUATC is playing a key role in a number of EC-inspired initiatives.
The language industry is changing rapidly so our task, via our brand new website, is to support our members by keeping them well briefed on developments, while offering all stakeholders involved or interested in the language business the very best data about the sector.
So a warm welcome to the new EUATC website. Enjoy your surfing!
Best Wishes
Mirko Silvestrini
EUATC President
