Juvenes Translatores Competition

28 November 2014

JuvenesWhy participate in this contest?

To promote language learning and the skill of translation!  To enhance career prospects and forge links with our EU neighbours.

If Europeans are to be "united in diversity", as the EU's own motto puts it, we need to be able to understand languages other than our own.

The Juvenes Translatores translation contest, which started in 2007, is here to help those who have a thirst to learn foreign languages.

In the long run, learning languages will bring us closer and help us understand each other's cultures. And it will make it easier for young people — tomorrow's adults — to study and work around Europe.

Studies show the ever-growing need for translation and translators in Europe. It's useful for language students to be prepared for this! Juvenes Translatores raises awareness of the importance of translation skills and the need to reasses translation — as a means of “mediating” between languages — in the context of language learning.

Congratulations to our volunteer MFL students who were selected to participate: Lydia Leitch, Marc Glendinning, Janine Ferry, Shannon Black AND Jade Kelly (who just participated for fun!).

We look forward to hearing of their progress in the New Year.

Mrs Allen
