The European Commission announced the universities that have been presented quality awards for the Master's program in translation. 62 universities from 21 EU Member States received the quality award, the Faculty of Philology of Vilnius University being among them.
The European Master's in Translation (EMT) is a partnership project between the European Commission and higher-education institutions offering master's level translation programmes.
A quality label for university translation programmes that meet agreed professional standards and market demands have been established.
The main goal of EMT is to improve the quality of translator training and to get highly skilled people to work as translators in the EU. The translator competence profile, drawn up by European experts, details the competences translators need to work successfully in today's market. More and more universities use it as a model for designing their programmes.
The project is popular among universities. This year, the Commission received 114 applications from 25 Member States and three non-EU countries.
