The Directorate-General for Interpretation (shortly called DG Interpretation and commonly abbreviated as SCIC for its former French name Service Commun Interprétation-Conférences) is a Directorate-General of the European Commission. It is the European Commission’s interpreting service and conference organiser and provides interpreters for around 11,000 meetings every year, thus being the largest interpreting service in the world.

DG Interpretation manages the allocation of Commission meeting rooms and provides support for the smooth running of meetings in many languages that are held there. It also organises conferences for Directorates-General and departments of the Commission, typically in the range of over 40 main events per year.

As of 2011, head of DG Interpretation is Marco Benedetti, Director-General, and it refers to Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.
