Language industry web platform (LIND-Web)

LIND-Web compiles facts & figures about the EU language industry. These are provided by language professionals, industry stakeholders and EU institutions. By joining forces, our common goal is to raise awareness of an economic sector with considerable growth potential — essential in today's global markets.

Here you will find:

  • statistics & surveys on the language industry as economic sector
  • best practice reports and guidelines from the field
  • upcoming industry events selected by experts
  • information on language industry work placements

'Language industry' covers professionals working in:

  • translation
  • interpreting
  • subtitling and dubbing
  • localisation
  • language technology tools development
  • international conference organisation
  • language teaching
  • linguistic consultancy

Sharing knowhow

Our knowledge base is for all language professionals and relies on their input. You can browse or upload documents in any EU language. We welcome your contributions. DG Translation manages and checks the quality of the uploaded material.

LIND-Web is a spin-off of the study Size of the EU language industry.
