The European Commission is responsible for the European Union's daily governance and protects the EU's interests as a whole (not those of individual countries). The Commission has representations in every EU country. They answer questions and provide information about Europe, especially about the role and the impact of the EU in your area. Furthermore we inform the Commission in Brussels about political developments in the Netherlands.
With 2500 translators and 1000 interpreters the Commission is the largest actor worldwide in the field of multilingualism. We ensure the availability of Union legislation for the European citizens in the 24 official languages.
Interpreter Booth: Understand the conditions under which European interpreters work. Try how well you translate in a short session. Speeches are available in all 24 EU languages, and you can interpret into any target language. There are professional interpreters from Brussels present to assist and provide feedback. You will find the booth at the stand of the European Institutions.
