EU translator competition

The European Personnel Selection Office will most likely launch a competition in July to recruit English-language translators for the European Union institutions. Applicants must be citizens of any EU Member State, have a bachelor's degree in any discipline and be able to translate from two EU official languages into native-speaker-standard English.

Attached is a poster advertising this competition.

Receive notification of the launch of the competition by joining the Facebook group called We are waiting for the 2010 EU English-language translation competition! You can find it here.
