52 professional associations

29 European countries


International Federation of Translators Regional Centre for Europe

FIT Europe represents the interests of around 35,000 language professionals through its member associations of translators, interpreters, terminologists, and associated researchers and trainers, right across Europe.

It is one of the regional centres of the Fédération Internationale des Traducteurs / International Federation of Translators and serves as a forum for exchanging information and experience, finding solutions to shared problems and agreeing on measures to heighten public awareness of good professional practice.

FIT Europe's principal objectives are:

  • to promote the interests of translators and interpreters in Europe,
  • to encourage recognition of the benefits society derives from translation, and
  • to coordinate national efforts to achieve formal recognition of the title and status of Translator.

Our working documents and news about the profession can be accessed through this website. The main FIT website can also accessed for further information. If you have a particular enquiry please contact us.

For the FIT Europe Board,
