Translation workshop


What is in a word?

On Tuesday, 21st November 2017, a translation workshop took place at The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium. It was led by Mr. Peter Jakša, the representative for languages from Directorate-General for Translation of European Commission. Students got to know various aspects of the work of translator, practised translating skills and were given practical advice from an experienced translator. Students believe the workshop was very useful and occasionally challenging. It was an excellent preparation for the forthcoming translation competition Juvenes Translatores, in which the students of the Diocesan Classical Gymnasium will have the opportunity to compete already on the following day.  We wish them good luck!/Tatjana Jarc/
