From 4 to 7 June 2014 CEATL held its Annual General Meeting at the Literarisches Colloquium Berlin.
CEATL welcomed the Icelandic Association of Translators and Interpreters, Bandalag þýðenda og túlka (http://www NULL.thot NULL.is/), as a new member. The association will be represented by Ms Magnea J. Matthíasdóttir. With the admission of the Icelandic association CEATL has 35 member associations from 29 countries across Europe, representing some 10,000 individual translators.
During the meeting CEATL’s four active working groups (on Translators’ Visibility, Training and Education, Working Conditions, and Copyright) presented the preliminary results of their studies. The final reports, which will also be published on the CEATL website, are expected in the course of 2014.
