Who can take part?

Secondary school students born in 2006.


Each year since 2007, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Translation has run the Juvenes Translatores contest in schools across the European Union. The translation contest gives young people a taste of what it is like to be a translator, encourages them to learn foreign languages and may inspire some of them to become professional translators. Every year about 3,000 teenagers from nearly 700 secondary schools participate.
