European Master’s in Translation (EMT) – Putting Quality, Innovation, and Students at the Heart of Translator Training

“The European Master’s in Translation (EMT) is a partnership project between the European Commission and higher-education institutions offering master’s level translation programs. The EMT is one of the partner projects that we at the Directorate-General of Translation (DGT) of the European Commission feel very proud of. EMT is a quality label for master’s-level translator training courses. It is given to higher education programs that meet commonly accepted quality standards and market demands. The EMT promotes quality translator training and ensures future translators are prepared to meet today’s requirements for language professionals.

There are currently 63 European translator programs participating in the EMT quality label. They are from 21 different EU member states and 1 non-EU member state (Switzerland). Together, they form the EMT network.”
