Translating Europe — Forum & Workshops

DG Translation has long-standing relations with various stakeholders in the world of translation, such as:

  • universities
  • the language industry
  • national language institutes
  • translation services in EU countries
  • professional associations

We are seeking to encourage more structured cooperation with and between all these stakeholders. The idea is to create a community of interest, with a view to giving visibility to the world of translation, sharing good practice, developing common projects, and promoting a diversified and sustainable market for professional translators in Europe.

To this end, every year we will organise:

Translating Europe Forum

This annual event aims to generate concrete projects between translation stakeholders.

When? The next edition takes place on 29-30 October 2015 in Brussels.

Translating Europe Workshops

The workshops are designed to address skills gaps in the language industry and promote employability for translation students and graduates.

When? Throughout the year, in several EU countries.
