Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

EU translator competition

The English Department of the European Commission's translation service is pleased to announce the launch of a short film explaining the work of a translator and how to apply for a job as a translator in the European Institutions. This film would be of interest to anyone considering a career in languages, and we would be most grateful if you could forward it to any potentially interested students and graduates. It can be viewed here.

Applications for the next recruitment competition can be made here from 13 July to 12 August.
