About this activity

In our daily life, we need languages more than ever– for travelling, for studying abroad, for business and for work. At European level, with 28 Member States and 24 official languages, translation is a real issue and plays a key role in the functioning of the EU institutions.

What is the reality of providing translations from and into 24 different languages?

Come and visit the Directorate-General for Translation's stand in the Berlaymont and learn about the diversity and challenges of the work of one of the biggest translation services in the world. Professional translators from the European Commission, from different Members States, will talk about their daily work and their role in making multilingual communication a reality. 

If you are interested in a stimulating career where you can use your talent for languages, pay a visit to our stand and find out about professional perspectives in the field of translation in our service.

Get a taste of multilingualism with our Wall of Languages, which will act as a live register of the linguistic diversity of our visitors, who, once again, will be invited to leave a quotation, a thought or a comment on our Wall of Languages about languages and/or the meaning of translation!

The European Commission is the EU's politically independent executive arm. It is alone responsible for drawing up proposals for new European legislation, and it implements the decisions of the European Parliament and the Council of the EU.
