The aim of these virtual events is to bring together master students in translation and translators working for the European Commission to offer a sneak peek into the work of DGT.
During these virtual visits, our professional translators share their experience and answer questions in interactive virtual rooms. Students also learn about translation tools and methods used in the European Commission, the required skills for translators, the various translation profiles, as well as career and traineeship opportunities in the European Commission.
The programme will include:
- a main part about the DGT’s work and career opportunities in English, and
- breakout rooms in each of the 24 languages where students can ask questions, interact and discuss with our translators.
Dates of the virtual visits in 2023:
- Spring virtual visit, 17 March 2023
- Autumn virtual visit, 24 November 2023
On both dates, the virtual visits will take place from 9:30 to 13:00 and will cover the 24 official EU languages. This means you can choose to participate in both visits or select the date which best suit you.
You can register to the Spring virtual visit by 3/3/2023.
Please note that places are limited and registration will be validated on a first come first served basis.
Registration for the virtual visit on 24 November will be launched in September 2023.
