Kerem Kalfa, Associate Translator, RWS Istanbul, Turkey

“I am forever grateful for the chance and my teammates that I have been blessed with”

I've always wanted to learn stuff, and I can say that I'm a curious person. I love to read and research. But I was a little confused when I started the university. I had three options in mind: being a translator, being a chef, or being a lawyer (although I have to say that being a lawyer was just a whim because of the series I watched, Suits)...

Ellie Siriwardena, Senior Translator, RWS Sheffield, UK

My journey with RWS started in 2019, when a translator from the company gave a presentation on the RWS internship programme at Durham University, where I was studying for my MA in Translation Studies at the time.

Kirsty Austwick, Project Manager, RWS Sheffield, UK

“I’ve learnt a lot throughout my journey at RWS and in particular, that communication is key.”

I started at RWS back in September 2018 on a year-long Internship or ‘Sandwich Placement’ from Sheffield Hallam University. After finishing my 2nd year of my undergraduate degree in Human Geography, I knew that I wanted to complete a work placement before starting my final year but had no idea about the job role or industry that I wanted to work in longer-term. I saw an advertisement for the Project Management role on the university website and thought this would be an interesting opportunity to combine my interests in human geography and global business!
