Trainee translators everywhere
In a pleasing juxtaposition of news, Google's announcement of the imminent arrival of a smartphone which interprets in real time, delighting Star Trek fans everywhere, is closely followed by news of an entirely different kind of translator, also in development. The European Commission has just announced the winners of its Juvenes Translatores competition. I know many of our students have contacts with schools and teaching, so those of you in the EU, why not let the schools in your network know about the competition, and maybe sign up for next year? Anyone who would like to test themselves against Europe's best can find the original texts here and the winning translations here.
