Translation and drafting resources for EU languages

If you work with texts in one of the EU's 24 official languages, our translation and drafting resources website could be a useful source of information, especially for EU-related texts. The site contains links to resources that our translators use.

Whether you are looking for multilingual terminology, tips on drafting or EU in-house style guides, the links to resources may well provide you with the answers you need.

For every official EU language, the site gives:

  • general language resources for translators and drafters;
  • specific reference materials and guidelines for contractors translating texts for the European Commission.

All of these are downloadable and specifically useful for anyone developing language applications or language technology, providing language services or carrying out translation research.
