Amicale - Friends of LST

The Association of Friends of Linguistics and Language Technology aims to promote contact and information exchange between graduates, students, teachers and employees of the department.

Amicale was founded in January 1988 as the "Association of Friends of Applied Linguistics, Translation and Interpreting at Saarland University". Since then, the University of Saarland has also undergone a great deal of restructuring in our field: New courses of study have replaced the training of translators and interpreters in their previous form. Subjects 4.6 and 4.7 were merged.

In September 2017, Amicale also reacted to this merger: In an extraordinary general meeting, the association was extended to the entire new field of linguistics and language technology.
