The institutions of the European Union employ hundreds of
translators. Why? What do they do? What sort of translation problems
do they have to tackle? How will the language policy of the European
Union be affected by the inclusion of new Member States in the near
future? This book answers all those questions. Written by three
experienced translators from the European Commission, it aims to help
translation students, freelance translators and general readers to
understand the European Union institutions and their work. Although it
deals with written rather than spoken translation, much of the
information it gives will be of interest to interpreters too.

"I am sure that it will find many readers who will benefit from the
ample information it contains and who will appreciate the clear and
convincing style in which it is written."
Brian McCluskey,
Acting Director-General of the European Commission's Translation
