Description:Central European Translation Market Survey - Did you know that the decline in demand for French has fallen sharply in the V-4 countries? What languages are on the rise as source language instead? - Do your peers work mostly with direct clients or via agencies? Do they prefer national or international clients? Do they translate into foreign languages? - You will learn what the average translation fees are as charged in the countries surveyed. - You will learn how the country markets compare in terms of using CAT/MT.

The “CETMS” (Central European Translation Market Survey) has been the first international translation market poll of its kind, conducted in the following (Visegrad 4, “V-4”) countries:
  • Czech Republic
  • Hungary
  • Poland
  • Slovakia
It was coordinated from the Czech Republic (Institute of Translation Studies, Charles University) and the stakeholders and other organising parties included Universities, Professional Associations, EU-Commission’s Field Offices and LSPs in the V4 area. It was run at the end of last year and attracted 729 respondents.
