Talent Endorsement Program

Theoretical academic preparation is essential in helping students build their knowledge and professional reputation on the market. As we believe that deep understanding should be supplemented by hands-on practice in cooperation with leading translation agencies, we have decided to capitalize on our vast partner base and make this possible by bringing the two sides – industry and academia – closer together.

The goal? Simple. To make the big world smaller.

INTRODUCTION

We decided to start this project based on our conviction that real-world experience is an essential part of translator training. Building on the ever-growing numbers of both our partner universities and translation agencies, we are convinced that we can be an effective intermediate between the two.

However, we also want to be sure who we vouch for. For that reason, we have created a set of criteria (found below) that all the parties must meet in order to participate in the program. The aim is to create a rewarding environment for both parties so that only the most reliable translation agencies and the most skilled students are promoted.

Students & universities | The Criteria | Translation agencies

  • The translation department must be part of our Memsource Student Certification Program.
  • The agencies are carefully selected with the help of our account managers.
  • This also means that we have discussed the form of Memsource training with the professor and found it exceptional.
  • The agencies pay students for their work.
  • The student must pass the Student Certification with excellent results.
  • The agencies should have experience working with newcomers to the industry.
  • The professor who trains students in Memsource has to be a Memsource Certified Trainer.
  • The agencies must support students with advice, accurate feedback and, ideally, additional training.
  • The student must be recommended by their professor.
  • The cooperation can be freelance or on-site.
