Thursday, 22 October: Translation workshop for secondary school students in conjunction with the National University of Ireland, Galway
On Thursday, 22 October, the European Commission will run a special workshop – Translation as a career – in conjunction with the National University of Ireland, Galway. This workshop will take place online and is aimed at students in fifth year in secondary school who have a high level of Irish. European Commission translators will provide an outline of their work and University lecturers will set out the courses available to learn the skills required to become a translator. Students will then have an opportunity to try their own hand at translation (translating short texts from English to Irish).
