I am happy to pass on the news from the European Commission Directorate-General for Translation that
the European Personnel Selection Office will launch a competition in July to recruit English-language translators for the European Union institutions. Applicants must be citizens of any EU Member State, have a bachelor's degree in any discipline and be able to translate from two EU official languages (one of which must be French or German) into native-speaker-standard English.Good luck to any MATSnews readers who apply. :)
You can find out more by visiting the Translating for Europe page on Facebook.
You can also receive notification of the launch of the competition by joining the Facebook page called We are waiting for the 2012 EU English-language translation competition!
(A quick reminder as well that there are graduate translation internships available at the DGT. They run for 5 months from 1 March and 1 October each year. There is a short window for application twice a year. The next application cycle opens on 1 July and closes on 1 September.)
