Coordinating Teacher: Aikaterini Christodoulou (EFL Teacher)

"Juvenes Translatores" is a translation contest for 17-year old students organized by the Directorate-General for Translation of the European Commission. The idea is to raise the profile of language learning and translation.

Our school took part in the pilot contest of the year 2007 with seven contestants who were interested in having a unique experience in translating to and from any of the 23 official EU languages. The contest was held at our school on 14 November 2007 and the texts were translated from English into Greek. The following students took part: Kalliopi Papageorgiou, Maria Stathopoulou, Viki Iliopoulou, Sevasti Katemoglou, Foteini Christi, Stamatina Koutouvali and Eleni Vikeli. All the students had prepared for the translation contest with the help of Ms A. Christodoulou (EFL Teacher).
