Aston University Students Presented with Translation Awards
This year The Translation People awarded two outstanding students at Aston University in Birmingham with well-deserved prizes in translation.
In July, Annie Shead was presented the trophy celebrating her exceptional “Achievement in Translation” acknowledging her hard work in her studies towards a Bachelors of Arts at Aston University.
Furthermore, back in April, the “Excellence in Translation” award was given to Masters of Arts student, Edith Hyronimus. The award was presented by Zuzanna Lazowy, Team Leader Birmingham, who personally congratulated her on her achievements in translation while at University. Zuzanna commented, “it is always important for students of languages and translation to be rewarded for their triumphs”.
The Translation People recognise that awards such as these are vital for the promotion of future translators and to motivate young talent to progress into the translation industry. The Translation People also understand the important role that businesses, in conjunction with universities and schools, play in promoting languages as a viable career option for graduates. The Translation People have presented many translation awards in the past to those Aston University students who have shown excellent potential to lead the way for young students and hopes to keep inspiring future translators.
