European Commission Launches Annual Translation Contest

The European Commission's translation department invites students from across Europe to test their translation skills in the 12th edition of its annual Juvenes Translatores contest.

This year, teenagers with a love for languages will translate a text on the topic of cultural heritage. Participants can choose to translate between any two of the 552 available language combinations using the EU's 24 official languages.

Günther Oettinger, European Commissioner, in charge of budget, human resources and translation, explained, "Languages are at the heart of Europe's diversity and a path towards understanding our identity. Through this competition, young people are reminding us of how diverse we actually are and that diversity is one of our biggest assets.”
