Elia is the first pan-European company-to-company association in the language industry. We are an umbrella professional organisation for translation, interpreting and localisation companies across Europe and beyond and aims to establish relationships with companies and related organisations from other parts of the world. Elia is committed to representing the best interests of its member companies in the European marketplace.
Elia is a non-profit Limited company, registered in the UK.
Elia is the only European association that brings together translation companies from all over Europe and around the world, giving them an opportunity to communicate with each other directly rather than through a national association.
The purpose of the EUATC is to unite the Associations of Translation Companies and to promote interaction and co-operation between these Associations, as well as protecting and encouraging the promotion of the translation and interpreting industry in all countries. It was established in 1994 and its members are national associations of translation companies. Source: EUATC website
