The European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) is organising open competitions, based on tests, to constitute a reserve from which to recruit translators (AD 5).
The European Union Institutions are looking for translators with a perfect command, both written and spoken, of German, Greek, Spanish and Swedish languages.
The principal role of linguistic administrators (translators) is to deliver high-quality translations by the deadlines set and to provide linguistic advice so as to enable the institution or body for which they work to fulfil its mission.Their duties include translation from at least two source languages into their main language, revision of translations from those languages, and terminology research. The texts involved, which are often complex, generally deal with political, legal, economic/financial, scientific or technical subjects encompassing all the European Union’s areas of activity. Performing these tasks requires the intensive use of specific IT and related tools.
