Are you a wordnerd©?

Do you have a writer’s feel for your native English, and an excellent understanding of Russian? Or vice versa?

Eclectic is a small, growing company, specialising in the English <> Russian language pair. We’re always on the lookout for a wordnerd© – whether long-established and looking for new people to work with; or up-and-coming, and seeking a challenge (with some guidance thrown in).

Russian to English Translation Internship

What’s this?

Spend 1-3 months in glorious St Petersburg, learning all the tricks of the translation trade from Eclectic Translations. Learn how to use MemoQ, get a sneak preview of new Russian films, learn how to subtitle, work on files of national importance, and help small companies get heard far beyond Russia’s borders. Get feedback on your work, improve your translation skills exponentially, and perhaps even get lined up for a job when you graduate.

Square Pegs, Round Holes…

Perhaps you’re not looking for an in-house job, nor are you a recent graduate. But what you are is a native English speaker with excellent Russian, great translation, or editing, or proofreading skills, and a desire to freelance with a team who really care about jobs that actually matter.

You’re an established specialist, you know what kinds of jobs you can turn around with reliable excellence, and what kind of jobs you won’t touch with a barge pole. You value the extra quality gained by working in a translator-editor-proofreader team. Careful, attentive project management – that human touch makes all the difference. And prompt, complete, no-hassles payment – well, at your level of experience, you won’t settle for less.

If that describes you, we want to hear from you.
