France: Aurelie - Language, Linguistics and Translation Studies

After completing the MA, I moved to London where I started to look for freelance projects. Little by little I manage to get more and more projects and a part-time job which I left when I felt I could get enough work. Being in London helped, as I worked on various occasions on longer in-house projects, based in London. I worked for about six months, as part of a team, on the new version of the Spanish - English Larousse dictionary which was really interesting and quite different from usual translation work.

I am now working for an intergovernmental organisation called the International Oil Pollution Compensation Fund in the External Relations and Conference Department as a Translation Administrator. I am proofreading, editing, formatting and occasionally translating. It is good experience and gives me insights into the UN system, and especially translation within the UN. I plan to go back to translating rather than proofreading and have applied for the UN competitive exam for translators.

Doing the MAATS was helpful, both for the CV and for experience. I learned from it because we had to reflect more on the task of translating and the skills involved and also it gave us some basics in Trados which I now use.
