Juvenes Translatores is the annual translation contest of the European Commission for 17-year old pupils.
The 2014 contest will take place on 27 November — it will be for pupils born in 1997.
To participate, schools must register first — between 1 September and 20 October.
This year’s theme will be “European identity”.
Any school wishing to participate must respond by registering electronically on the website between 1 September and 20 October 2014. The registration will start and end at 12.00 midday on these dates.
A random draw will be held to select schools to take part in the contest from among those that register.
After that, the selected schools can choose between 2 and 5 pupils to take part in the contest and must enter their names and language pairs in the database by 20 November 2014 at the latest.
The schools will be responsible for organising the event locally. This includes all practical arrangements, e.g. providing premises and personnel for the event, and ensuring that the test is carried out under fair and impartial conditions.
This will take place on 27 November 2014. On the day of the test, DG Translation will provide the schools with the texts to be translated. In each school, the test will take place as the school has arranged. The translations must be uploaded on the same day to a database managed by DG Translation.
DG Translation will evaluate the translations and choose 1 winning translation from each EU Member State.
Registration deadline: 20 October 2014
