My name is Annika Schlesiger and I am the Interpreters´
Coordinator for Model European Union Strasbourg 2019. I am
contacting you as this event may be of great interest to your
students. Although the conference will only take place next year,
most likely in March, we would like to give you some information
on this interpreting practice opportunity already.

Model European Union Strasbourg is the original simulation of
European politics. It is a week-long conference held in the seat of
the European Parliament in Strasbourg, a city that embodies the
spirit of the European Union. The participants get to experience
the decision-making process of the EU by taking on the roles of
various policy actors: MEPs, Ministers of the Council, Lobbyists,
Journalists and Interpreters.

Interpreters play a pivotal role in MEUS: they interpret speeches,
debates, meetings with lobbyists and press conferences, both
from English into their mother tongue and from their mother
tongue into English. They work mainly in the simultaneous mode,
but they can also be asked to perform consecutive interpreting
and chuchotage, thus getting the opportunity to hone in a variety
of interpreting skills in a near real-life working environment. For
students and recent graduates in Conference Interpreting, this
conference represents a unique opportunity to put their abilities to
the test, gain first-hand interpreting experience in state-of-the-art
booths at the European Parliament and meet other talented
budding interpreters from all over Europe. The number of
languages covered in MEUS will depend on the number and
quality of the applications received.

This year, the topics of the conference will be Consumer
Protection, Climate Change as well as the upcoming European
elections. You can find additional information on the project on
our website as well as on the role of
Interpreters, our professional ethics and the application

Applications will open 16 December, however we will send you a
reminder before the application period starts. Encourage your
students to come to Strasbourg and be part of this unique
experience! Should you have any questions, please do not
hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,
Annika Schlesiger
