  • [01] Ouverture des inscriptions pour le concours des jeunes traducteurs

    À partir d’aujourd’hui, les établissements de l’enseignement secondaire de toute l’Union européenne peuvent s’inscrire la deuxième édition du concours Juvenes Translatores (jeunes traducteurs), lancé par la Commission européenne en 2007 afin de promouvoir l’apprentissage des langues et la traduction. Les inscriptions se dérouleront en deux étapes: dès aujourd’hui, les établissements sont invités manifester leur souhait de participer au concours et déposer leurs coordonnées. Après la clôture des inscriptions, un certain nombre d’établissements seront tirés au sort dans chaque État membre. Ils devront ensuite indiquer le nom de leurs candidats, raison de quatre au maximum par établissement. C’est ces élèves qu’il appartiendra alors de relever le défi du concours de traduction, le 27 novembre 2008, de découvrir toute la difficulté de transposer un texte d’une langue l’autre et de percevoir le rôle essentiel de la traduction dans le fonctionnement de l’Union européenne.

    [02] Putting pen to paper: Discrimination and diversity – Journalist Award launched. Special award for focus on Roma.

    The European Commission has today launched the latest edition of its “For Diversity. Against Discrimination.” Journalist Award. For the fifth successive year, submissions are invited for this European competition which honours journalists from both online and printed media. The award showcases the talents of those media professionals who, through their writing, contribute to a better understanding of the benefits of diversity and the fight against discrimination – on the basis of religion or belief, disability, age, sexual orientation, race or ethnic origin.

    [03] New rules on pesticide residues to strengthen food safety in the European Union

    The European Commission made today an important step forward in its efforts to ensure food safety in the European Union, as a regulation revising and simplifying the rules pertaining to pesticide residues entered into force. The new rules set harmonised Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) for pesticides. They ensure food safety for all consumers and allow traders and importers to do business smoothly as confusion over dealing with 27 lists of national MRLs is eliminated. With the previous regime, different MRLs could apply to the same pesticide for the same crop in different Member States, a situation which gave rise to questions from consumers, farmers and traders. Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 is the result of a considerable joint effort by the Commission, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Member States.

    [04] Commission clears acquisition of Bakkersland by Parcom

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of sole control of Bakkersland Groep BV (Bakkersland) of The Netherlands by Parcom Capital BV (Parcom), also of The Netherlands. Parcom is an investment company. Bakkersland produces and sells bakery products. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.
