On 25 March 2010, Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, gave prices to the 27 winners of the European Commission's third annual ‘Juvenes Translatores’ (Latin for ‘Young Translators’), in Brussels. The Juvenes Translatores contest is the only one of its kind in which 17-year-old school pupils can test their translation skills in any of the official languages of the European Union. It was run for the first time in 2007 as a pilot project aiming to give a foretaste of what it is like to be a translator and to raise the profile both of the translating profession and of language learning in schools.

Only the original language version is authentic and it prevails in the event of its differing from the translated versions.
