Researchers from all over the world are
invited to become members of the EST.
Professional translators and companies
are also welcome to become members. However, the Society does not in
any way certify professional qualifications or endorse translation services or translator-training institutions.
Individual membership of the Society
entitles you to:
- compete for the Society's awards and grants

- benefit from the discounts arranged with publishers
- gain access to the research reports,
membership lists, and other exclusive material on our Internet site.
- receive the Society's newsletter
twice a year

call for papers, job announcements, and new publications.
Membership may also be an important
element in your CV. It indicates the seriousness of your
commitment to translation research, as well as your desire to form a part of
the research community.
Apart from ordinary membership for individuals, the EST also offers supporting
membership, which is open to institutions and legal persons.
Supporting members are welcome to sponsor or give specific support to any of our grants and prizes.
annual membership fee is 30 euros per year for full members and 75
