Registration for this competition has now closed. 

The European Commission’s translation department has launched the Juvenes Translatores competition for the eleventh year in a row.

‘EU 60′ – the 60th anniversary of the signature of the Treaty establishing the European Community’ will be the topic of texts which young translators from across Europe will have to translate in this year’s contest.

Registration for the competition opens at noon on 01 September 2017. The registration is first open for schools via the website The time period for registration runs until noon on 20 October 2017.

During the competition, students will translate a one page text from one official EU language into another. European Commission translators receive all translations, mark them and then select one winner per country. This year’s winners will be invited to Brussels in April 2018, to receive their prizes.
