Cover letter

As a fourth-year translation student, completing a certificate in Technical and Professional Writing, I have the translation and editing skills needed to fill a student translation position. I will be graduating April 2012 and would like the opportunity to put my skills to use within your organization. I recognize that a translation department often handles critical time-sensitive projects and needs employees who learn and adapt as quickly as new information is received. I am a fast learned who excels in fast-paced environments.
As my résumé shows, I have experience translation and editing in English and French. I translated important updates for a national non-profit organization's bilingual website from French to English, and proofread a company's external correspondance transmitted to their Francophone customers across the country. I also edited English terminology for an online insurance dictionary to ensure it complied with established style guides. In my position as a customer service representative, I use good judgment and analytical thinking when dealing with irate customers calling in with complex issues. I also make regular use of my excellent time management skills by meeting tight project deadlines in a fast-paced call-centre environment, without compromising on quality. My daily interactions with customers and prospective students demonstrate that I have the interpersonal skills needed to work on a team. As a result of my strong communication skills, I was given the responsibility of managing a national non-profit organization's central e-mail inbox. My previous position as a receptionist demanded that I be flexible and autonomous. I developed strong oral communication skills in my position as a York University representative where I gave speeches to large groups of high school students and led daily tours of the campus. I am also familiar with basic web technologies and have worked with HTML and CSS files.
Passionate about learning new things, I would be a meticulous and enthusiastic intern. I believe that my qualifications make me an ideal fit for a student translation position. If you agree, please do not hesitate to contact me.
