European translation contest for secondary school pupils

The European Commission is organising for the fourth time a translation contest for young translators: Juvenes Translatores. The contest, to be held on 23 November 2010, is for secondary school pupils from EU member countries. The pupils will be asked to translate a text of about one page from any of the EU’s 23 official languages into any other official language. The winners, one from each EU country, will be invited to Brussels in 2011 for an awards ceremony.
