Thursday 24 November 30 students from 5VWO, DP1 and DP2 participated in the European Translation contest Juvenes Translatores. The RLO was one of the selected schools in the Netherlands. The aim of this competition is to promote language learning and translation and to underline the important role of translators in Europe. Translation was possible in/to all official languages of the European Union, this time the students translated from/to Dutch, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and English. After all the source texts had been distributed, the students worked with utmost concentration on the texts that turned out to be not so simple and where a lot of creativity was required from the translators. The 4 official participants have a chance to win a glorious award ceremony in Brussels!
