EU competitions for translators and interpreters
I hear the EU competition for translators will be open for registration at the EPSO website at www.eu-careers.eu from 13 July to 12 August. According to the site, there will be competitions for translators into Danish, German, English, French and Slovenian, and for interpreters into Bulgarian, English, Dutch, Romanian and Slovenian.
While you are waiting for registration to open there are a couple of resources you might find helpful. Charles, a translator at the DGT, has a Facebook page where he answers questions from potential applicants for translation posts with the EU institutions - see the Discussions board. And sample texts in all languages for the translation competitions can be found here.
Good luck to any readers of this blog who apply! :)
