Sudbury, Massachusetts (PRWEB) September 26, 2009
In honor of International Translation Day, celebrated around the world on September 30th of each year, Rapport International announces the Rapport International Language Translation Contest.
High School students around the world are invited to compete by translating the story of a translation misunderstanding into one of any languages. The winner of the $100 American Express gift certificate will be chosen by a random drawing of qualified translations. The contest will run from September 30 to October 31, 2009.
Wendy Pease, owner of Rapport International says "I am excited about the contest - many students take language courses throughout school but do not know about the many opportunities in the language translation industry. Hopefully, the contest will encourage students to become bilingual - it can only enhance future career prospects."
