Friday, October 2, 2020 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

Emma Hartkamp (European Commission)
Eva Boodts (European Parliament)
Willemijn de Jong (European Parliament) 

Find out more about translating at the EU. In conversation with Willemijn de Jong of the Liaison Office of the European Parliament, Eva Boodts, translator at the European Parliament in Luxembourg and Emma Hartkamp, ​​field officer at the Representation of the European Commission in The Hague, talk about the difference between translation and interpreters, machine translation and how to become a translator in the EU, and explain why interpreters and translators are so important in European democracy. 

Target audience: students, (freelance) linguists, broader public with an interest in Europe 

Interesting for you because
The EU is unknown and therefore often unloved. Certainly her language policy!
But what opportunities this policy offers, private and professional!
Especially in these ‘digital’ (crisis) times … Interesting for a broad target audience!
