For freelance interpreters there is no nationality requirement and all languages may be considered. Accreditation as a freelance interpreter is obtained by passing an inter-institutional interpreting test. To be eligible for such a test, you must comply with the following criteria:

Interpretation The European Parliament has one of the largest interpreting services in the world. Interpreters play an important role in ensuring effective communication in this unique institution which works every day in 24 languages. The original official languages of the European Communities were the four languages of the founding states: German, French, Dutch and Italian. At that time there were 12 possible language combinations. New languages were added with successive enlargements: 1973: English and Danish (plus Irish/Gaelic, but only for Ireland's act of accession and the basic texts), so 4 + 2 = 6 official languages and 30 language combinations. CURIA - Direction générale de la Traduction - Traducteurs free-lance The translation service The institution’s legal translation service, with over 600 lawyer linguists, is responsible for translating the legal documents of the Court of Justice of the European Union. It ensures the smooth and efficient running of the Court’s judicial proceedings and the multilingual dissemination of the Court’s decisions, thus giving all EU citizens access to justice and case-law at a European level, whatever their language. The service translates a wide variety of legal texts which vary according to a range of factors: nature of the case, subject area, document type (procedural documents, opinions of Advocates General, judgments, orders), language, style, length, legal background of the author, etc.

Invitations to tender are published regularly in the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union (S Series) and can be browsed online on the TED database, which is available free-of-charge and is updated daily.

Working at the General Secretariat Contract staff The GSC employs a limited number of contract agents, selected either from candidates registered in EPSO's CAST database or from reserve lists or databases compiled by other institutions.

We therefore recommend that you keep your CV up-to-date in the database you belong to.
