EU seeks linguists

The European Personnel Selection Office has launched a competition to recruit English, Danish, Dutch, French, Italian, Maltese and Slovenian translators to work for the EU institutions in Brussels and Luxembourg.


Candidates must have a university degree, a perfect command of the language of the competition (English, Danish, Dutch, French, Italian, Maltese or Slovenian) and be able to translate into that language from two EU official languages, one of which must be English, French or German.

World-class translators are central to everything the EU does. The language services of the European Union institutions have a crucial role to play in strengthening communication and helping citizens understand the role of the EU in their everyday lives. Working to strict deadlines, they translate political, legal, financial, scientific and technical texts and provide wide-ranging linguistic advice. It is intellectually challenging work with a high degree of sensitivity and responsibility.

The closing date for all applications is 13 August 2013.
