"Lifelong learning is essential for translators and interpreters to keep their technical and linguistic skills up to date at all times. The BDÜ has therefore set itself the task of offering a wide range of seminars on professionally relevant topics. These seminars are held centrally (i.e. in Berlin) and regionally.
