AVTE – AudioVisual Translators Europe
Since June 2019, PEEMPIP is a member of AVTE, the European federation of national associations and organizations for media translators of all kinds. AVTE coordinates efforts to promote the profession of audiovisual translators and ensure good and fair working conditions for media translators. It promotes networking and the exchange of information between the associations and various EU institutions and legislators. Audiovisual translation is the ultimate translation filter connecting European citizens and ensuring cultural osmosis and infusion. We hope that PEEMPIP’s collective experience will contribute towards AVTE’s good work and similarly that PEEMIP will learn from AVTE, paving the way to establishing and preparing guidelines on good working practices and standards in the field of audiovisual translation for Greece.
In addition, PEEMPIP participates in various national and European surveys and conferences related to the translation profession and the improvement of the provision of translation services, such as translation and interpreting in criminal proceedings, translation in the healthcare sector, translation studies and the standardisation of translation skills.
