This week we were delighted to welcome Christine, our new German Junior In-house Translator, to Team AJT. Hailing from the Tyrol in Austria, and armed with BAs and MAs in Translation Studies and Linguistics from the University of Innsbruck – two of each, no less – she’s fast settling in as part of our lovely in-house translator team.
Christine’s love of linguistics has seen her study numerous languages during her time at Innsbruck. In addition to core languages of English, Spanish and of course, her native German, there’s Chinese, Dutch, Norwegian and Turkish, too – wow! There’s no doubt at all that her future lies in languages, and we’re so glad to be able to provide her with her first taste of translation in the real world.
Christine loves baking (we’re happy to be your guinea pigs, Christine – just saying) and the outdoor lifestyle, of course! She’s already been seen walking our beautiful coast path and is keen to get out on the mountain bike trails as soon as possible. There’s yoga and badminton too, and having seen people surfing for the first time ever, she’s keen to try her hand at that.
Languages open doors to different cultures and peoples, something Christine is passionate about. Now the study is over, she’s 100% ready to embrace everything that living in a new country can offer – we’re really glad to hear she’s finding the Cornish people super friendly and absolutely loves British humour!
We are really proud to offer in-house employment opportunities for graduate translators who would like to gain their first commercial translation experiences in a supportive and collaborative team environment.
