Hindi Translation Internship Programme

We are currently inviting applications for an internship programme specifically dedicated to translating the magazine’s stories into Hindi. These include reportage, essays and commentary, in both short and long form, all published in English. Interns will work on stories from the archives as well as the current issues. They will be expected to exercise sound editorial judgment while translating stories, and also proofread them closely. They may also be required to do transcriptions of interviews and other audio materials into Hindi. Applicants should have a post graduate or undergraduate degree in Hindi literature and an exemplary command over both Hindi and English.

The internship is full-time—from 11 am to 7 pm, Monday through Saturday. Interns will be paid a stipend. The Caravan requires a three-month commitment from interns, and accepts applications on a rolling basis. We are currently reviewing applications for a position that will be vacant in first week of August 2017. The deadline for receiving applications is 10 July 2017.
