European Master's in Translation (EMT)


The EMT is a partnership project between the European Commission and higher-education institutions offering master's level translation programmes.

The main goal of this project is to establish a quality label for university translation programmes that meet agreed standards in education. University programmes that are benchmarked to these standards become members of the EMT network.
