The Directorate for Translation of the EESC/CoR organises its annual conference for DT staff on Friday 27 September from 9.00 to 13.00.

The conference will aim to offer insights into the ways in which social and digital media are effecting change on the translation profession - not only as regards the ways in which translators work, but in terms of how languages are viewed and used in online communications.
