European Master's in Translation (EMT)

EMT is a network of master’s degree programmes in the field of translation that aims at improving the quality of translator training and providing graduates with assistance for a successful career start. The membership in the EMT network is a quality mark for translation-related master’s degree programmes since the European Commission Directorate-General for Translation only awards this label to those university programmes that meet the jointly defined professional standards and the market requirements.




The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) is a non-profit organisation in the localization and translation industry that brings together 400 partners from industry and academia. Membership@GALA gives our department access to GALA resources and allows us to attend GALA webinars. Further benefits of the membership can be found here.



Founded in 1960, CIUTI (Conférence Internationale Permanente d'Instituts Universitaires de Traducteurs et Interprètes) is the world's oldest and most prestigious international association of university institutes with translation and interpreting programmes. The CIUTI membership is a distinct seal of quality that our department has held since 1994.
