Following hard on the heels of last week’s post on the United Nations’ foreign language essay contest… there are about two weeks left to enter the St. Jerome Translation Contest.

“Launched in 2005 by the English Translation Service at UN Headquarters, the St. Jerome Translation Contest has been held each year to commemorate International Translation Day, which is officially recognized by the International Federation of Translators.

The contest also serves to celebrate multilingualism within the United Nations, and highlights the important role that translators and language professionals play in the work of the United Nations and in the world at large.”

Find out more here.

Deadline: 31 January 2016.

Hat tip to Jost Zetzsche for making me aware of the contest.
