UrFU students perform at Dialogue of Cultures competition

Two students from Ural Federal University performed at the fifth annual "Dialogue of Cultures" poetic translation competition.

Anna Sinyakina took home first place, and Natalia Piskunova was awarded second place.

The contest requires participants to translate three works of poetry in French. Contestants are evaluated on accurately translating the original text's lexicon and grammar, as well as on their ability to catch culturally specific references and fully reflect the content and style of the original.

The event was put on with the participation of the French Embassy and with information support from "French," a pedagogical magazine, and the Resource Center of the French Institute of Foreign Language.
