The Pan-African Masters Consortium in Interpretation and Translation (PAMCIT), aims to provide international, regional and subregional organizations operating on the African continent with the capacity to serve intergovernmental processes in the long run by supporting succession planning.


Formerly known as the “African Project”, PAMCIT was launched by the heads of the language services of several international organisations, including the EU and the UN, who took part in the First Pan-African Conference on Training of Translators, Conference Interpreters and Public Service Interpreters, held at the United Nations Office at Nairobi in February 2009.

Current members

PAMCIT now includes six universities in Kenya, Senegal, Cameroon, Mozambique, Egypt and Ghana, one of which is also a MoU university: the University of Nairobi (Kenya).
