1. Tender Leaves Translation Internship Programme
Tender Leaves Translation (TLT)
is a languages services company focused on literary translation between Chinese
and English, writing, editing, and training of young translators. The company
is based in Shanghai and Singapore.
The programme is open to
all MTI students to apply in January every year.
The programme is
project based, and the number of vacancies for each batch of the MTI students
depends on the availability of translation projects at TLT:
1. For major projects (such as translating a
book above 100 pages), the student interns will be engaged for a few months or
up to 1.5 years.
2. For smaller projects (compared to translating
a book above 100 pages), the student interns may be engaged for a few days or
TLT will accept MTI students who have been recommended
by the MTI Programme as student interns and TLT will engage MTI student interns in the translation work that will lead
to the publication of books, publications in other means, or with no
TLT will oversee and mentor the student
interns to ensure the quality of their work. The MTI Programme
will monitor the internship projects to ensure that the student
interns receive proper guidance and sufficient feedback from TLT.
TLT will record the
student interns’ work during the students’ candidature, and will send the
records to student interns and the MTI Programme on a quarterly basis (in
March, June, September and November respectively). Student interns will receive
the scholarship or token of appreciation by cheque from TLT upon their
graduation from the MTI Programme.
