Don't miss your chance to enter EU Young Translators' Contest for schools
Secondary schools can now register for the annual EU Young Translator Contest at Juvenes Translatores.
The registration period runs until 20 October and the online application form is available in all official EU languages, which for the first time include Croatian. The contest, now in its seventh year, will be held on 28 November at the same time in all selected schools. It is open to pupils of any nationality born in 1996 and more than 750 schools can take part. The pupils (2 to 5 per school can enter) translate a one-page text in any of the 552 language combinations of their choice from among the EU’s 24 official languages.
2013 is the European Year of Citizens so the texts to be translated for this year’s contest will focus on the benefits of EU citizenship for people, whether as private individuals, consumers, residents, students, employees or political representatives. European Commission translators mark the texts and select one winner per country. The winners will be invited to Brussels to receive their prizes in April 2014.
