NOTE: This session has already been held

Room: MGA Room

What opportunities does the expansion of the European Union hold for the translation and interpreting markets?

In the focused discussion we would like to explore threats and opportunities resulting from EU enlargement for translators and interpreters in both „old” and „new” Member States. What is the impact? What kind of future developments we should expect? And most importantly, how we can best benefit from it?
