Newbie news: Welcoming our translation intern Julia

Settling in very nicely as our latest French-speaking translation intern, is Julia Deville. Hailing from Brussels in Belgium, Julia will be here with us in Newquay all the way through until the Christmas break.

Following on from her first degree in Translation and Interpretation at the Institut Supérieur de Traducteurs et Interprètes in Brussels, Julia is currently studying for an MA in Literary Translation, also at ISTI and, being keen to try her hand at freer, more creative, translation, she arrived at AJT’s door.

Julia’s core languages of French, German, English, together with some Dutch, align perfectly with our own core offering, and with a solid background in translation studies she’s really enjoying her first attempts at marketing translation.

Julia loves travelling, as well as history and the arts – in fact she calls herself a ‘museumworm’, visiting museums wherever she travels, and as far afield as Thailand, Cambodia, Brazil and Colombia. She even pays an annual visit to the Korai of the Acropolis in Athens and is clearly fully deserving of her self-imposed title.

Julia celebrated her birthday the week she arrived in Newquay, so in true AJT fashion we packed her off to the iconic Headland Hotel overlooking the magnificent Fistral Beach where she could celebrate in style with her boyfriend, over a Cornish Cream Tea.

If you would like to join our company as a translation intern in 2019, we do still have a few spaces available. Check our Jobs page for more details.
