I want to translate for Europe

In the European Institutions, interpreting and translating are treated as two separate professions; translators work with the written word, interpreters with the spoken word.

The European Commission therefore has two separate language services, DG Interpretation and DG Translationexternal link.

They recruit staff independently of each other and on different criteria. Linguists at the Commission work exclusively for one or the other.
