Pigeon English Booker Prize InitiativeBooker / bouquin translation competition

Calling all first year students to test their translation skills (for a prize)!
In response to the University of Sheffield’s participation in the Booker Prize initiative the Department of French has launched a translation competition for first year students. The book is, of course, already available in translation so students are asked to translate a literary review that will test translation skills.

Deadline for submission is 5pm on Friday November 8th, via email to to Dr Julia Dobson (j.dobson@shef.ac.uk). There will be a prize for the winning translation (£25 book token). Check on MOLE (FRE109) for full submission details!
