We have some staff changes at Better Languages. On Friday we said goodbye to Rosanna, one of our Erasmus placement students. She has finished a 5 month placement with us. This is part of her Masters Degree in Translation from the University of Pisa. We have really enjoyed having Rosanna on placement. We wish her every success with the rest of her course, and also with her future career.

Our aim is to give placement students a good understanding of the translation industry. This will help you in your future career.

However, we will actively consider the best placement students for future project management positions within the organisation.
