  • [01] Commission's contest gives young Europeans a taste of being a translator

    The translation skills of over a thousand students across Europe will be put to the test in the "Juvenes Translatores" (young translators) contest organised by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation on 14 November. The contest, taking place simultaneously in all 27 EU Member States, will challenge 17-year-old students to translate short texts on a general subject from one chosen language into another from among the European Union's 23 official languages. Nearly 1 500 students from almost 300 schools have been selected to participate. Celebrating multilingualism, one of the fundamental principles of the EU throughout its 50-year history, the contest gives participants an entertaining and worthwhile opportunity to see what it is like to be a translator.

    [02] Concentrations: la Commission autorise le projet de rachat de l'activité biscuits de Danone par Kraft, sous réserve de certaines conditions

    La Commission européenne a autorisé, en vertu du règlement (CE) sur les concentrations, le projet de rachat des activités l'échelle mondiale de Danone dans le secteur des biscuits et des produits céréaliers par l'entreprise américaine Kraft. La décision de la Commission est subordonnée la cession d'un éventail de marques espagnoles de biscuits, d'une usine en Espagne et d'une marque hongroise de tablettes de chocolat. Compte tenu des engagements présentés, la Commission a conclu que l'opération envisagée n'entraverait pas de façon significative l'exercice d'une concurrence effective dans l'Espace économique européen (EEE) ou dans une partie substantielle de celui-ci.

    [03] Danuta Hübner takes part in Commission on Growth and Development in China, Suzhou, 12-15 November
