We are pleased to announce that on 11 November 2020 the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) and the Translation Centre signed an agreement whereby the Centre becomes the language service provider for the EPPO. This agreement sees the Centre’s portfolio increasing to 69 clients.

Open data that is accessible to governments, businesses, organisations and individuals plays a crucial role in the EU’s digital transformation. To help understand the data available on the EU Open Data Portal and its potential, the Publications Office of the European Union (OP) is launching a new series of webinars: EU Open Data Explained (ODE).  

The first webinar in the series will be held on Monday 9 November 2020 from 11:00 to 12:00 CET and will focus on a domain in which the EU is particularly strong – multilingual resources.  

This is the theme chosen by the International Federation of Translators (FIT) to mark International Translation Day 2020. The event is traditionally celebrated on 30 September, the feast of St Jerome, who is the patron saint of translators.

The Translation Centre’s leaflet on the Language Consultancy service is now available. The leaflet was created to help our clients get a better understanding of the type of activities provided under this service.

On 26 September every year, the Council of Europe celebrates the European Day of Languages (EDL) to promote language learning and preserve the linguistic richness of our continent.

As the shared language service provider for the EU agencies and other EU bodies and institutions, the Translation Centre has always paid particular attention to ensuring the high quality of its products and meeting its stakeholders’ requirements. With this aim in mind, since 2001, the Centre has had a free after-sales service in place. This was originally based on the Client Satisfaction Form (CSF) which allowed clients to express their satisfaction and submit feedback on the language services provided by the Centre, including requests for fully revised documents.
