The penetrability of university and business is of huge significance for the education system. This applies not only to the students, but also to professors. Because even professors can complete an internship in the free economy – and it is even funded by the universities.
An English professor, who is not unknown to the Group and who has already worked successfully with the Group on a language project in the past, spent a semester at our company. During her internship, she worked on numerous translation and proofreading projects – especially English-language projects – and thus obtained insights into newer working techniques and developments of the translation industry at the Geisenhausen location.
Our company donated the proceeds generated by the work of the professor to the Aktionskreis Ostafrika, which, in turn, uses these funds to finance a higher school education for girls from poor families in Tanzania.
We think the professor combined teaching and theory with practice in exemplary fashion – and all for a good purpose!
