In 2016 was created the Translation and Interpreting Department of the new Faculty of Letters, Translation and Communication (LTC), named Termisti, at the Université libre de Bruxelles (University of Brussels).
As Termisti was not of sufficient size to form a facultative research centre within the folds of this university, it decided, after a period of reflection beginning in 2016, to found a new centre of research, with a wider range of competences. It now welcomes around thirty researching teachers, teachers and doctoral students from all departments of the Faculty LTC, around three main areas of research:
- The science of translation and interpreting;
- The teaching of languages, cultures and literature;
- The workings of languages, and aids to translation.
Termisti will continue along its path as a research group specialised in terminology, likely to bring scientific support to active researchers in the three areas of research at the centre.
