Translation and Interpretation in Europe

Contributions to the Annual Conference 2013 of EFNIL in Vilnius


Gerhard Stickel (EFNIL)

Europe is not «lost in translation». It lives in and by translation and interpretation. The 11th conference of the European Federation of National Institutions for Language (EFNIL) dealt with the importance of these two significant communicative techniques for mutual understanding within multilingual Europe. The articles by official representatives of the different European institutions inform about the facts of day-to-day interpretation and translation in Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg. Experts discuss translation and interpretation under various general aspects including a historical perspective. Reports on the training and activities of interpreters and translators in several European countries follow. A discussion of the demands and suggestions for translation and interpretation in Europe concludes the thematic part of the book.
