Translators of the week

This week’s Translator of the Week blog will be a little different: instead of honouring one of our favourite professional translators, we are going to celebrate the achievements of our fantastic University Challenge winners, some of which are in the office today collecting their prizes!

So well done first of all to our overall winner Christopher Smith, who has been in the office learning the ropes this week. Chris wasn’t able to make full use of the month’s internship offered as a prize, as he has to make preparations for his upcoming move to China, but he has learned a lot about life within a translation company this week. We’ve really enjoyed having him here, and hope he has had a great time. Have fun in China!

We were very impressed with the quality of entries in our contest this year, and our winners were chosen from almost a thousand entries, so they should be very proud of themselves!

Our fabulous winners from each language pair were:

EN>ES – Sonia Arroyuelo, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

CYM>EN – Mair Roberts, University of Oxford

FR>EN – Jennifer Green, Swansea University

IT>EN – Jacqueline Casey, University of Bath

RUS>EN – Thomas Rowley, University of Oxford

EN>IT – Carla D’Amato, Universita degli Studi dell’Aquila, Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia

So well done to these fantastic young translators, this week is your week! We wish you all the best in your future careers!
