Annual activity report 2023 - Interpretation
EUROPA
2024.06.21
DG SCIC facilitates the EU‘s democratic decision-making processes and contributes to modernising, digitalising and greening the Commission as a public administration. We contribute thus mostly to the horiziontal general objective of ‘A modern, high-performing and sustainable European Commission‘.

2023 was the last full year of the current political cycle and, as anticipated, demand for interpretation was high. Thanks to innovative organisational measures to increase interpreters‘ availability, DG SCIC was able to increase its ouptut by 13% compared to 2022, providing 179 025 i-slots. This is slightly more than in 2019, which means that acitivity is back to pre-pandemic levels. This increase in output is spread evenly across all EU languages. Whereas it was achieved in the second half of 2022 by the lifting of health measures, in 2023 it was due, in addition, to DG SCIS‘s ability to provide interpretation in a higher number of meetings.
