During the weekend of 27-28 March 2021, the Centre will take part in the ‘Relais pour la Vie’ relay run. Organised by the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation (Fondation Cancer), the event usually gathers thousands of participants who run together in support of those affected by cancer. This year, the Foundation has set up a new way of connecting people in support of cancer patients and research by bringing runners together online in the ‘Relais pour la Vie ensemble & connectés’.

The vacancy notice for the post of Director of the Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union (COM/2021/20056) has been published in the Official Journal C065A of 25/02/2021 and on the EPSO website.

Without words we have less power to change things whenever the need arises. On the occasion of International Women’s Day, which takes place on 8 March every year, we would like to draw your attention to the terminological resources on gender equality that are available online in the interinstitutional terminology database (IATE) and on the European Institute for Gender Equality’s website.

The least we can all say about 2020 is that it was a year of adaptation, creativity and flexibility. And, despite the pandemic, the Translation Centre managed to operate as usual and deliver 635 269 translated pages to its clients. It also successfully implemented 98% of its far-reaching Transformation Plan 2019-2020.

As a new year begins, the page is turned. 2020 will forever be remembered as the year of the pandemic, which has put our normal way of life on hold.

As part of the Centre’s two-year transformation plan set in motion in 2019, our key objectives have been to analyse in depth the communication needs or specific multilingual projects of our clients in order to find the best and most cost-effective solutions for them while increasing the competitiveness of our services.
