2021 Juvenes Translatores contest

The annual Juvenes Translatores translation contest, which started in 2007, is is aimed at highlighting the ever-growing need for translation and translators in Europe. Juvenes Translatores raises awareness of the importance of translation skills and the need to reassess translation – as a means of ‘mediating’ between languages – in the context of language learning.

The competition website includes ways for students to prepare, practice texts, winning translations from previous years, and more.

Juvenes Translatores has also proven to be a springboard for other ventures involving languages and culture. Some participating schools, for instance, have started organising educational exchanges.
