About this project

Welcome to the Speech Repository 2.0!

This section provides you with detailed information about our project. You will learn what the Speech Repository is, how it is organised and how you can use it and benefit from its functions.


The Speech Repository is an e-learning tool developed by DG Interpretation to help improve the quality of conference interpreter training.

This vast collection of speeches, on varying subjects and with different styles, contains real-life speeches which have been collected from national institutions and international organisations. It also contains recordings of pedagogical material, i.e. speeches delivered by experienced EU interpreters and university trainers. These speeches are tailored specifically to the needs of student interpreters for practice in both consecutive and simultaneous mode and are adapted to the different stages of their training path.

The Speech Repository covers all 24 official EU languages, the languages of some of the candidate countries, plus Russian, Arabic, Chinese and International Sign.
