English to German in-house translator Nadine

New to our Newquay team: Nadine joins us as English to German in-house translator

Last week we were super happy to welcome Nadine Rieser to the ranks of the AJT German in-house team, where she’s quickly found her feet.

Having recently graduated from the University of Geneva with an MA in Translation and Technologies, Nadine leaves the mountains of Switzerland behind her and is delighted to find herself translating freely by the sea in Cornwall.

With a BA in Multilingual Communication, a stint working as a project manager for a translation company in Lausanne, experience teaching English and German to children and young people, and an earlier background working in the book industry, Nadine has a good understanding not only of the translation industry and of business in general, but also of language and the doors it can open for young people: she brings a great many strengths to our team!

This isn’t Nadine’s first experience of life in the UK having spent the first two years of her BA at the University of East Anglia before returning to Geneva to complete her studies. A bit of a globetrotter, she also lived and studied for a year in the US after high school, and has taught English to students in France and Spain.

And there’s more… Nadine is a dedicated fitness enthusiast and already a committed member of the local gym, where she can be seen flexing her weightlifting muscles. Not being one to sit still, she’s just signed up for a martial arts course and is planning to get her first surfing lesson under her belt very soon.

New translation graduate joins our team

We’re thrilled to welcome Lucie Gravier to AJT, boosting the ranks of the ever-growing in-house French team to a ‘fantastique’ four!

Lucie joins us armed with a Master’s degree in Technical Translation from the Institute of Translators, Interpreters and International Relations in Strasbourg, her home town, and she’s settling nicely into her new role as junior in-house translator.

A head-over-heels Anglophile, Lucie loves to immerse herself in all things English. In fact, before settling on a translation career, a life as an English teacher was seriously on the cards. Well, we can safely say that we’re glad you chose translation Lucie – education’s loss is AJT’s gain!

Lucie has inherited a passion for travel from her parents, and has already visited many far-flung corners of the world – Newquay and Cornwall included, naturellement! A lover of the outdoors, she can’t wait to thoroughly explore our beautiful Cornwall, and is planning to join the National Trust – she’s a massive fan.

To relax, Lucie loves nothing better than to settle down to a good movie. She’s an avid film buff and is particularly taken with British period dramas. She also enjoys drawing, with portraiture being her thing – who knows, perhaps we’ll commission her for a Team AJT portrait!

 

Our translation intern Pauline

Say hi to our new translation intern Pauline

Our new German intern Pauline has arrived, and brought with her bags of enthusiasm!

Pauline’s interest in languages started early: first came German, then French, and a stint in Boston on a musical theatre scholarship piqued her interest in English. But her ‘lightbulb moment’ came as she started work on a volunteer project in Colombia after high school. Unable to communicate at all in Spanish, the importance of language learning hit home and now (having mastered Spanish too, by the way) Pauline is midway through a Bachelor’s degree in Multilingual Communication at the Cologne University of Applied Sciences.

Aside from her love of languages, new cultures and new people, Pauline loves the outdoor lifestyle. She has already started learning to surf and is often out walking the coast path. She tells us she was competing in triathlons (albeit of the local village variety!) aged five, but tends to leave the bicycle at home these days, sticking mainly to running and swimming.

Pauline is not yet sure where her future lies, but she knows it lies in languages, and with her passion for singing and acting, well who knows where we might see her name in lights in the years to come!

We offer internship placements for German and French translation students who are required to carry out an internship at a translation agency as part oft their degree program. We typically offer placements to students with the language combination English to German and English to French. Placements usually last two to three months, depending on the requirements of the university. If you would like to find out more about our internship program, please email jobs@anjajonestranslation.co.uk.
