Updated version of the EMT competence framework now available

This competence framework aims to consolidate and enhance the employability ofgraduates of master’s degrees in translation throughout Europe.

European Master's in Translation - EMT Competence Framework Update

The European Master’s in Translation (EMT) network published its framework for translator and
translation competence in 2009, followed by a substantial redrafting in 2017. This has now become
one of the leading reference standards for translator training throughout the European Union and
beyond, both in academia and industry. While the basic principles laid down in 2017 still stand, the
framework required a minor update to reflect the priorities of European translation programmes, as
they prepare graduates for a dynamic and highly technologized workplace.
