Young Pole among winners of European translation contest

A Warsaw secondary school student has been named as the Polish winner of a translation contest held by the European Commission.

The 17-year-old student, Krzysztof Warzocha, has been praised for translating a text from Spanish into Polish.

He was one of almost 240 teenagers from 51 Polish schools who entered the Juvenes Translatores (Young Translators) contest.

He will join winners from the 27 other EU countries on a visit to Brussels to collect the award and meet some of the European Commission’s professional translators.

The Young Translators contest was launched in 2007. It is organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Translation.
