Caweb Goes USA: en route to Silicon Valley

Seventeen Master’s students flew to Silicon Valley on October 3, 2015. During their stay, they had the opportunity to attend seminars in the web and in the translation fields. They also connected with the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) at Monterey to work on future cooperation.

Ms. Renate de la Paix, director of Master Caweb, is the mind behind the operation. Every year the Master’s allows its students and alumni to thrive and succeed in a variety of web-related careers. This trip to the West coast is a first, but is a reflection of the Master’s dynamism and innovation.


A new international partnership

This project was made possible by a partnership between Master Caweb and Intern Abroad. Your Silicon Valley by Intern Abroad, founded by Leslie Dollet, is an internship program dedicated to assist European candidates wishing to get a first professional experience in the USA. This program is a great opportunity for the candidates to witness the region’s success.

Silicon Valley is the driving force of international technological development. The region is known for its social and business ethics that supports innovation and entrepreneurship.

Home to many of the world’s largest high-tech corporations (Apple, Facebook) and many prestigious universities (Stanford, Berkeley), Silicon Valley is the most attractive destination for students who aim for a career in the web or in the localization industries.

Enthusiastic students

Charline, a distance learning student, tells us more about what is taking her to SV:

“I am currently an apprentice in a translation agency called Technicis. I intend to build my career in video game translation. This trip represents the opportunity to meet professionals and teachers from this field. I also hope to witness the “California-way-of-working”.

Agathe, on the other hand, is an on-campus student working as a web-editor apprentice at De Dietrich :

“I can’t wait to discover America’s third largest high-tech center! I have strong interests in localization and web design and I hope to connect with some people working in that area”.

  4. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
