Young translator Maria Myrianthopoulou from Cyprus to receive award from Commissioner Vassiliou

10.04.2013 The 27 teenage winners of the Commission’s annual Juvenes Translatores contest for young translators will receive their trophies from Androulla Vassiliou, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, in Brussels on Thursday 11 April.

More than 3 000 pupils aged 17, from schools in each EU Member State, sat the contest. Each had two hours to translate a text from an EU official language of their choice into one of the EU’s 22 other official languages. The results were marked by Commission translators who shared their impressions in this video.

One winner was selected for each Member State. The award ceremony will take place in the Commission's Charlemagne building at 11:00 am, Brussels time.

For details of the list of winners and their schools, see IP/13/55. It is recalled that the winner from Cyprus is Maria Myrianthopoulou, from Kykkos A' Lyceum, who will share her experiences with the contest. Three more winners, from Austria, Bulgaria and Italy, will also share their experiences from the contest.

Special guests at the ceremony include the winners of a separate translation contest inspired by Juvenes Translatores for Turkish university students.

The day after the ceremony, winners and accompanying teachers will visit the premises of the Directorate-General for Translation where they will meet with European Commission translation professionals.
