AP | PORTUGAL
You've made the decision to do an internship and after considering all the options that offer you continued educational growth and professional knowledge, you opt for an internship with AP Academy.
Once this decision has been made, it's now time to look into some other details and among those is the issue of accommodation. After all, AP Academy is open to students and professionals from all over the world who see us as an ideal environment to grow and develop.
A six month internship with AP Academy gives you the opportunity to get to know one of the most exciting cities in Europe - Porto. Located in Vila Nova de Gaia, within walking distance from the metro station, our headquarters are in a privileged location. You can get to Porto, the General Torres train station and even the Porto airport, only 20 minutes way.
A famous postcard at a short distance, a perfect location and also the opportunity to add your internship experience the possibility to discover a multi-cultural and historical heritage. Porto also offers you a renowed nightlife, full of bars, music and different atmospheres, complemented by what we consider unforgettable: the rich gastronomy. In other words, a complete and fascinating experience you don't want to miss.
Staying at such a short distance from all of this and also from AP Academy's front door is an option for all interns and professionals that collaborate with AP Portugal Tech Language Solutions. What are we talking about? Let's go into the details.
The accommodation that AP Academy offers is located in a real estate development that dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, the first on Avenida da República, very close to Porto, the city elected three times European Best Destination. That's hard to beat!
The apartment offers you all the comfort you could possibly need during your six-month internship, providing, for example, three fully-furnished rooms (two double rooms and one twin), two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, a kitchenette and a utility room.
The AP Academy accommodation combines traditional and modern design in all areas, just as AP Portugal's training and development reflects a modern, Portuguese translation company operating since 1998, that has always been governed by three fundamental values: responsibility, honour and dedication.

Mentoring, an AP Academy asset
What do we mean by mentoring? Mentoring is a professional development strategy in which one experienced person shares their knowledge, skills and experience to assist others progressing in their own careers. AP Academy is completely devoted to this strategy; it is our commitment and our passion. What does that mean? The work carried out by the trainee in a real working environment is revised by an experienced in-house professional translator, and afterwards by external translation professionals who thoroughly review the entire project.
What are the outcomes? Double the quality assurance based on the important principle of "translation-check-revision". But that's not all, because mentoring is also reflected in the feedback, which provides trainees the opportunity to receive constructive criticism and opinions of the work that they have accomplished.
