The CIUTI-Family in 2013

Welcome to CIUTI

Ini­ti­ated in 1960, CIUTI (pro­nounced [’sju:ti]) is the world’s old­est and most pres­ti­gious inter­na­tional asso­ci­a­tion of uni­ver­sity insti­tutes with trans­la­tion and inter­pre­ta­tion pro­grammes. Mem­ber­ship requires ful­fill­ment of strict qual­ity cri­te­ria and is a dis­tinct seal of quality.

Devoted to excel­lence in T&I train­ing and research, being a mem­ber of the CIUTI fam­ily is both a reward­ing sta­tus and a con­tin­u­ous chal­lenge in the light of chang­ing mar­ket needs and ongo­ing research.


If you feel that your T&I institute shares the spirit and quality philosophy of CIUTI, you are welcome to apply for CIUTI membership. The admission procedure typically takes about one year and is designed to ensure that CIUTI members share high standards in T&I training and research. For details, click on "Admission Procedure" on the left.

PLEASE NOTE: At the moment, CIUTI is rethinking the concept and the format of the Forum. CIUTI will organize a scientific Conference in Edinburgh in May 2018. The call for papers will be published in the near future. CIUTI FORUM, as the name implies, is an open discussion platform for all parties involved in translation and interpreting. Within the setting of an annual conference, usually in Geneva, stakeholders in T&I training, research, and practice are invited to discuss T&I-related problems and solutions, current trends, and anticipated developments. Recent topics were the role of languages in a changing global market, market-oriented T&I training, and translation-quality issues.
