As one of the biggest employers of translators anywhere in the world, we have plenty of opportunities — for individuals and companies. If you would like to work with us, there are several options:
The European Commission has two separate language services, DG Translation and DG Interpretation. They recruit staff independently of each other and on different criteria. Linguists at the Commission work exclusively for one or the other.
Translators work with written text, interpreters with the spoken word. So these are two different careers.
