Translation Service traineeships at the European Commission

next deadline: 1-September-2004
Five month traineeships are available for graduates who wish to gain in-house professional translation experience.

Those seleced are assigned to a translation unit comprising translators of the same mother tongue. Trainees do the same work as their staff colleagues, translating into their mother tongue from at least two other Community languages. Their work is revised by experienced senior staff. Some trainees are assigned to language library or to the terminology unit or other support unit in the translation service.

In order to apply you must:

hold a full university degree,

be less than 30 years of age,

be able to translate into your mother tongue from two of the Community’s official languages,

not have completed a traineeship in another European Union institution or body.

People from the Candidate Countries can apply for a traineeship. They need to be able to translate in two Community languages.

Trainees receive a grant of EUR 735.00 per month, plus a family allowance for married trainees. Some traineeships without a grant are also available. The traineeships usually run from 1 March and 1 October, but they may start on other dates at the discretion of the translation service.

The deadlines for submitting applications are 1 September for the traineeship starting in March and 1 March for the one starting in October.
