Montreal, October 29, 2001 - A rare event in the language industry, a large Montreal-based multilingual translation agency, BG Communications International Inc. , organised a contest throughout the province; the "BG Babel Bursaries". Divided into a total of four categories: two of which are at the university level: A) English to French translation and B) French to English translation, while two are at the Cegep level: the English or French revision of a text. The Babel Bursaries were created to reflect the company's wish to contribute to the training of tomorrow's translators and linguists, promote professional excellence, and ensure a continuity in human resources in the sector of translation, revision, terminology and linguistics in Quebec.
It is not only to alleviate the absence of incentives for new translators, but also to identify the most promising talent at the university level, support their integration in the job market and foster a greater recognition for the profession that BG Communications International Inc. has created and implemented the Babel Bursary programme.

As the result of lengthy debates amongst jury members, here is the list of the 2000-2001 bursary winners:

French to English Translation Category:
Clanssa Treadwell Bishops University 1st prize $1,500
