Openings for UN interpreters & translators

UN_General_AssemblyThe United Nations has advertised some openings for interpreters, and for translators, to be located in either Vienna, Nairobi, New York or Geneva.

As far as I can see, languages currently sought are:

  • English interpreters (from French and Russian)
  • French interpreters (from English and Spanish; English and Russian; or English, Spanish and Russian)
  • Arabic translators (from English and at least one of the other official languages of the United Nations (Chinese, French, Russian or Spanish)

Competitive examinations are to be held in April for the above interpreting positions, and in March for Arabic translators. The posting period for the interpreters is 4 December 2012 to 18 January 2013, and for Arabic translators will end on 19 December 2012.
