MargaretMargaret Wiens

My name is Margaret Wiens and I’m from Ontario, Canada. I have been an undergraduate student for six years in total, including four at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario and two years at the University of Ottawa. I have two Bachelor’s degrees in French studies and French-English Translation, where I developed strong communication skills in both oral and written French. In 2014 I spent one semester living and attending school in St. Étienne, France in order to deepen my knowledge of French culture and language. I was also able to travel to 12 European and African countries.

I entered the translation program in 2015; over the last two years I have completed internships at a translation agency in Toronto and with the Translation Bureau in Ottawa. Both practicums allowed me to work with specialized domains and improve my French comprehension and English writing skills in those areas. Among the most significant fields were business financing and marketing, as well as legal translation: one day I hope to translate court decisions and other legal texts for the Government of Canada. In the summer I work at a winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, where I can meet people from all over the world. I also enjoy camping/cottage-ing and exploring the local wine region.

As an intern at Modlingua I hope to learn about and become proficient in content writing and citizen journalism, project management and quality standards, online marketing and computer assisted translation tools.
