English language internship – translation project
Mestra López, Jesús David | 2020-06-13
The Department of Foreign Languages in the University of Córdoba proposes a macro
project called “Servicios de Traducción e Interpretación” led by professors of the English
Teaching program and current internship tutors: B.S. Jaime Nieto and M.S. Paula García.
This macro project has two micro projects, one focuses on interpretation services to expert
visitors whereas the other is aimed at translations and revisions of academic papers.
The University of Córdoba offers this project as a selectable option for students to
graduate, but the internship process was modified due to the global pandemic of the current
year. This report describes the strategies, theories, and overall experience from three interns
as they accomplished the tasks, functions, and responsibilities they were given under the
micro project focused on the translation and revision process of academic papers.
