Juvenes Translatores – Translation Contest

Juvenes Translatores 2016, the translation contest for schools has been lunched.

The competition is designed to give 17-year-olds (born in 1999) from schools throughout Europe first-hand experience of what it is like to be a translator. Young students will be given the opportunity to take part in a translation test that will take place on the same day in all EU countries: 24th November 2016.

Pupils will be able to decide which of the European Union’s official languages they want to translate to and from.

Schools across Europe are invited to register by 20th October 2016, 12.00 midday (Brussels time).

The awards ceremony will take place in Brussels, Belgium, in Spring 2017.
