“After graduating from the University of Reading with a degree in French and Italian, I joined RWS in 2015.

“From the age of 14 I knew I wanted to pursue a career in languages, and more specifically in translation. That’s what led me to apply for the job I’m doing today.

“My role involves managing the translation process of European Patents into European languages, as well as the national validation of these translations in Europe. The best thing about this job is that I get to use my languages; I mainly use French as I deal with French clients and translators every day, which is great. I didn’t know I’d be able to be using my languages so much in my first job after graduating.”

What I find exciting about this job is that there’s always some new technology to explore and learn about. I was made to feel very welcome from my first day and really enjoy working with my colleagues.
