European Young Translator of the Year Competition

Christ the King Sixth Form College has been selected as one of only 73 schools in the UK to take part in the prestigious young translator competition run by the European Union.

The European Commission’s Juvenes Translatores competition is designed to promote multilingualism, language learning and careers in translation. Contestants are asked to translate a text of about one page from any of the 24 official languages of the EU into any other official language. The competition is open to second-level students who were born in 2001. One winner from each Member State will be invited on a three-day trip to Brussels, with an award ceremony in the headquarters of the European Commission

 The competition will take place simultaneously across Europe at 9am on Thursday 22nd November. Christ the King will be represented by 5 linguists:

1.Doua Khila

2.Deborah Momoh

3.Abigail Tenkorang

4.Aminata Kebbeh

5.Cristina Aguilar Mbula.

We are also taking this opportunity to ask all Modern Foreign Language students to take part in the same contest as part of an internal translation competition.  There will be a prize for the best translation in each language – French/Spanish or Italian.
