@Anonymous: Yoy may apply by sending an e-mail to the hiring manager, whose e-mail address is included in the blog post (at the very end). However, we posted this some time ago, so we don't know if it's still active, but there's only one way to find out!

Join the conversation! Commenting is a great way to become part of the translation and interpretation community. Your comments don’t have to be overly academic to get published. We usually publish all comments that aren't spam, self-promotional or offensive to others. Agreeing or not agreeing with the issue at hand and stating why is a good way to start. Social media is all about interaction, so don’t limit yourself to reading and start commenting! We very much look forward to your comments and insight. Let's learn from each other and continue these important conversations.
