For many translators, they are driven by two passions: the love of languages and the need to improve intercultural communication. The 2014 recipient of the McGill Associates Prize in Translation (English-French) is no exception to the rule.
Ms Hilda Monzon Bosch received this distinction at the spring graduation ceremony when she was awarded her Certificate in Translation.
Montreal, August 2014 –
According to constructivists, translator competence comes in many shapes and sizes but is not limited to language competence alone. Much depends on life experiences and the ability to build progressively on these. Such is the case for Smadar Brandes, the 2014 winner of the McGill Associates Prize in Translation (French-English), which is awarded annually to the student with the best academic record in the Certificate in Translation.
This August, McGill University’s School of Continuing Studies (SCS) will be hosting L’École d’été, a yearly event organized by l’Institut de Nouveau Monde.
