High-profile EU market study on the size of the language industry


Wednesday, 29 April, 2009

GALA Members have the unique chance to raise the profile of the language industry by participating in the most comprehensive study of the size of the language industry ever conducted in the European Union. Questionnaires for the study commissioned by the Directorate General for Translation of the European Commission (DGT) are being distributed to a large number of individuals, small enterprises, language service providers and language service departments located in the 27 European Union Member States. GALA members located in Europe are invited to participate in this study, which takes only 15 minutes to complete.

“We are very excited to carry out this survey for the European Commission”, said Dr. Adriane Rinsche, managing director of The Language Technology Centre Ltd (LTC), that is conducting the survey on behalf of the DGT. ”It gives European GALA members the opportunity to describe their situation and compare it with the overall position. We hope that the study will help raise the profile of the language industry in the European Union even further".

Data obtained through the questionnaires will be treated in strict confidence in accordance with the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998, used for statistical purposes and published in aggregated form only. Unless specifically authorized by the respondents, no data disclosing information that could lead to the potential identification of single respondents will be released.
