ITD competition results

We are pleased to announce the winning entries in our International Translation Day competition.

As part of the ITD celebrations, members were asked to complete the sentence: ‘Translation is more than translating words, it’s about…’

Their ideas featured in illustrated social media posts in the week leading up to ITD (#morethanwords), and all suggestions were posted on the ITI website on the day itself.

The competition winners were:

  • Marie Marr (‘…making the reader forget it’s a translation.’)
  • Alison Murray (‘…bringing people together.’)
  • Jonathan Downie (‘…making deals that would not otherwise be possible.’)

They each received a gift voucher.

The Institute gained high levels of social media engagement for its communication campaigns in support of ITD – in addition to #morethawords, the #thisistranslation initiative in collaboration with the Association of Translation Companies proved very popular.
