From Aequitas to Aequalitas
The two European Union Grotius projects described below have contributed to establishing standards and international equivalencies in legal interpreting and translation, more specifically regarding selection and training, codes of ethics and conduct and interdisciplinary working arrangements with the legal services. They have also suggested ways for dissemination and implementation of their recommendations. The projects have played a major role in the formulation of EU policy in this area in the form of a proposal for a Framework Decision. The Agis projects are intended to carry the achievements forward.
