PROJECT PRESENTATION

 

CAWEB and Intern Abroad Connect Second Year Graduate Students to Professionals in the Web, Translation, Multimedia, and Localization Industries Based in San Francisco, and Silicon Valley

CAWEB is a master’s degree program at the University of Strasbourg. It focuses on translation, multilingual web design, localization, and content management. The master’s program addresses students with academic background knowledge and experience in modern and foreign languages. Students are trained to master two foreign languages, to create and maintain multilingual websites, to localize IT products, and in project management.

Second year graduate students are part of a work-study program, a professional contract (for students in continuing education), an end-of-studies internship or a job that provides a professional experience in their field. This hands-on experience is key, as it is a great opportunity for students to build useful career related skills.

Intern Abroad

CAWEB’s partnership with Intern Abroad makes this trip to San Francisco possible. Intern’s Abroad Your Silicon Valley is an internship program committed to assist European students wishing to have a first professional experience in the United States.
