First proposal of Common European Framework of Reference for Translation Level C (specialized translator)
This document will be a preliminary proposal of a common European framework for translation in 5 areas of specialization in translation (legal, economic and financial, technical, scientific, literary translation), including level descriptors for each area. It is a first proposal that cannot be validated during this project due to its time constraints (it is a 3-year-project). Validation will be performed in a future European project. The proposal resulting from this IO will already be of great use in translator training, as well as for employers, accreditation bodies and translators themselves, as they will be able to prove their translation performance level in a new manner.
This document will be translated into as many European languages as possible, for greater dissemination. It will be translated at least into the languages of the consortium members, plus German and Italian.
