EUMultiLingua Research Group

The EUMultiLingua research group was formed in 2020 on the basis of the Polish Eurolect research team built as part of the NCN-funded SONATA BIS grant (https://eurolekt.ils.uw.edu.pl/; 2015-2020). EUMultiLingua is based in the Institute of Applied Linguistics in the University of Warsaw.

The objective of the EUMultiLingua Research Group is to carry out interdisciplinary quantitative and qualitative research into multilingual specialised communication in the European Union, with a focus on legal translation.
