Aim of the Assistance
Multilingualism lies at the core of the European project. From the very beginning, Regulation 1/1958 set out the principle of the equality of the official languages of the European Communities. There are many facets to the policy for multilingualism: whether it is about supporting the principle of 1+2 (mother tongue and two foreign languages) in education, or the promotion of language skills for business purposes, the EU policy remains dedicated to the principle of equality and values the motto of "united in diversity".
European Commission, taking account of the experience with the last waves of enlargement, has a particular interest in recruiting well-trained translators from the national community of translators in the Member States.
The event is addressing participants coming from IPA countries: Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Albania, Turkey, Iceland and Kosovo.
