DGTRAD External Translation Platform

Dear contractor,

Welcome to this External Translation Platform.

The purpose of this webpage is to provide in one place all of the information and instructions for our external partners for successfully translating documents under the framework contracts for external translation services.

The Directorate-General for Translation (DG TRAD) of the European Parliament shares some or all of those framework contracts with the language services of the Council of the European Union, the European Court of Auditors, the European Economic and Social Committee and the European Committee of the Regions.

The European Parliament is the Contracting Authority on behalf of these European Institutions and Bodies. However, each participating Institution or Body is its own Authorising Authority for the expenditure and other budgetary operations in the performance of the framework contracts.

You will find together on this page links to documents of general application for all of the participating European Institutions and Bodies. In addition, you will find some specific information and instructions for contractors from each Authorising Authority separately.

If you do not find the answer to your query, please use the contact details provided under the relevant tab to contact directly the person or service responsible according to the nature or subject-matter of your enquiry.

Should you have any questions about the content of this site, please write to: dgtrad.etucontractsexecution@europarl.europa.eu

We look forward to working with you.

Tom Skinner

Head of the External Translation Unit (ETU)
European Parliament
