Our Mission

We created the Panhellenic Association of Translators (PEM) to promote linguistic professions in society and the economy. We strive to highlight the value of interpreters and translators and safeguard their professional rights.

What is PEM’s mission

We promote excellence in and the safe and beneficial performance of translation, interpretation and other linguistic professions in every area of social and economic activity.

To this end, collective efforts are required for:

  • Ensuring better working conditions.
  • Safeguarding linguistic professions.
  • Protecting the intellectual, ethical and professional rights of our members, regardless of their place of work.

PEM accepts as members interpreters and translators who:

  1. Have Greek as one of their working language.
  2. Practise the profession legally.
