English to French translator Alicia

A new English to French translator joins our team

For the last three years, we have been running a recruitment campaign each summer, inviting newly graduated translators to join our company as in-house junior translators. This year, we are thrilled to welcome Alicia Pretot to our team.

Alicia grew up near Besançon in the French region of Franche-Comte. She completed her Master’s degree in translation at the Institut de Traducteurs, d’Interprètes et de Relations Internationales in Strasbourg where she graduated in 2016. Since then, she has been spending time in Wiltshire, England, working as a freelance translator as well as a teaching assistant helping GCSE students in preparation for their French exams.

With a specialisation in technical and literary translation, Alicia is interested in new technologies as well as arts, and in her spare time she enjoys illustrating and writing. Having already visited Cornwall in the past, living and working here is an exciting new chapter for Alicia and she looks forward to revisiting her favourite places (the Eden Project and St Ives to name but a few) as well as exploring more out of the way treasures and hiking paths.

Project Manager Ariane

Welcoming our new project manager

Last week, we welcomed Ariane Bauer to our growing AJT family. Ariane hails from North-Eastern France where she completed a BA in Modern Languages (English and French) followed by a Master’s degree in Professional Translation at the University of Strasbourg in 2016.

For the last year, Ariane has been working as a translation project manager in Nottingham where she has been honing her multitasking and organisational skills. Ariane loves a good challenge and enjoys working in a fast-paced environment organising multilingual projects. She will be responsible for a variety of our client projects translating from and into English, as well as our DTP (desktop publishing) services.

As a true polyglot (she speaks English and French and has a working knowledge of German and Spanish, too), Ariane loves travelling and discovering new cultures. A keen hiker, she is excited about exploring the coastal path that spans the Cornish coast, as well as trying her hand at surfing – naturally.

In her spare time, Ariane also loves to bake and cook and has already managed to win our hearts with rather delicious home-made sesame pretzels!

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.
