Dear Ms. Robertson:

Thank you for your letter of October 15, 1996, concerning the possibility of the Translation Bureau accepting students from your program for spring practicums. It gives me pleasure to inform you that the Bureau will again be hosting students interested in one-to-three-month practicums in our organization.

I should point out, however, that owing to budgetary constraints, there may be
fewer places available this year.

To facilitate matters, I would ask you to have the attached forms filled in by candidates and to return them to me by February 21, 1997, either by fax (my number is 997-7743) or by mail.

Please do not hesitate to contact me by telephone at 819-997-7733 for further information.

Yours very truly,

Leopold Covacs
