Conference Interpretation

Capacity building

The Directorate-General for Interpretation of the European Commission also cooperates with partner countries outside the EU with public administrations and universities. It promotes conference interpreter training according to the standards developed in the EU institutions, thus helping to enhance the quality of interpretation in the countries concerned and actively supporting capacity building in the field of interpretation. This cooperation also contributes to a better understanding of the EU and gives visibility to the EU as a global actor.

DG Interpretation – together with partner EU services – manages international cooperation projects to train conference interpreters with China, Macao, Cuba, Russia, Mongolia and African countries (Pan-African Masters Consortium in Interpretation and Translation – PAMCIT).
