2021 ITIA Translation Competition for Secondary School Students
Calling all budding translators!
The Irish Translators’ and Interpreters’ Association (ITIA) was set up in 1986 and is the only professional association in Ireland representing the interests of practising translators and interpreters.
Given the success of the competition over the past five years, the ITIA is once again organising this translation competition for secondary school students in Ireland.
Students are asked to translate an excerpt from a novel or short story from one of the following languages into English: Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Polish, or Spanish.
A prize of €100 will be awarded to the best translation for each language.
The deadline for receipt of translations is:
