Welcome to eTransFair

To meet the market needs in the field of specialised translation, higher education training programmes have to prepare students for the working life. The aim of modernising the higher education programmes in the field of specialised translation will be met by improving transversal skills that prepare translation students for the language industry market and by providing ICT-based innovative teaching material and assessment tools to teachers. We pay special attention to inclusiveness and to disadvantaged groups when fostering digital skills.

Project leader: Centre for Modern Languages, Budapest University of Technology and Economics

Intellectual Outputs:


The major objective of Output 1, the first intellectual product of eTransFair, was to identify a set of skills ­– a sort of competence profile – for specialised translators, on the basis of the reviews of competence models already outlined for general translators; and recommend a set of teaching modules to be introduced at university curricula to meet the changing requirements of the translation market.
