European Commission and universities towards a European Master's in Translation

(From Europa Press releases)

The Directorate-General for Translation of the European Commission will host in Brussels its first conference with universities offering a translation curriculum. They will discuss the development of translator training in the EU, as a first step towards a standard curriculum for a Master's degree in translation within the EU.


  1. Hi there,
    I am not a translator yet, but I am hoping to become one soon. For the time being I am still finishing my degree in General Linguistics in the University of Lisbon (Portugal) and afterwards I intend to apply for the University of Westminster (London, England) MA in Translation and Interpreting, I would like to know if there is anywhere I can find statics about the level of the translation courses at this university.
    As far as the EMT is concerned, I just made a fool of myself a couple of weeks ago after sending an e-mail to one of the suposed "consortium universities" in Denmark. I wrote them to ask for some more information on the EMT and on the application procedures , but they replied politely saying that the EMT was not an actual master's course yet, it was still just a plan... after so much publicity and so many reunions you'd expect they'd walk out with something other than just a project... when is the EMT starting anyway? I have heard about the EMCI but it's not quite as general as the EMT seemed to be... which course is there currently that would resemble the EMT in it's programmes and carreer opportunities?

  2. Hi, I´d like to introduce you to my blog. Pop up as often as you feel like.
