OVER 25 YEARS COMMITTED TO MULTILINGUALISM

The Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union is an agency of the European Union. Established in Luxembourg in 1994, its main mission is to provide translation and related language services to the other decentralised EU agencies. It may also assist those EU institutions and bodies which have their own translation services when there are workload peaks or for specific projects. In total, the Centre translates for almost 70 clients. At the end of 2020, it had a total of 220 staff members, including officials, temporary agents and contract staff. TELL ME MORE
