Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a recommendation concerning the legal protection of translators and translations and the practical means to improve the status of translators. The recommendation is adopted by the General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Nairobi on 22 November 1976. Translators working as independent writers, whether or not they are paid by royalties, should benefit in practice from any social insurance schemes relating to retirement, illness, family allowances, and from any taxation arrangements, generally applicable to the authors of literary or scientific works, including technical works. Member States should recognize in principle that translation is an independent discipline requiring an education distinct from exclusively language teaching and that this discipline requires special training.
