Maitilde won the competition with a translation from English into Irish.
This year 53 students from 13 schools from Ireland took part in the 16th edition of the all-European competition. Across Europe 2,883 participants put their language skills to the test, choosing to translate a text between any two of the EU's 24 official languages.
The European Commission's translators selected 27 winners, one for each EU country, as well as 287 students who received special mentions for their outstanding translations.
The award ceremony for the 27 winners will take place in Brussels, on 31 March 2023.
The European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation has organised the Juvenes Translatores (Latin for ‘young translators') contest every year since 2007. Over the years, the contest has been a life-changing experience for many of its entrants and winners. Some have decided to study translation at university, and some have joined the European Commission's translation department as a trainee or a full-time translator.
