Fifteen students were honored on March 26 at the award ceremony of a French-Chinese translation competition to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Belgian poet Emile Verhaeren, who wrote in the French language.



The competition of translating Verhaeren’s poems from French into Chinese, hosted by the Consulate General of Belgium in Guangzhou, was part of the 2017 Francophonie Festival. The annual festival aims to promote the French language and enhance cultural exchanges with China.

Five poems were selected by Joris Salden, the Belgian consul general, and each participant was required to choose one and translate it from French into Chinese. Fifteen students from Jinan University, Guangdong University of Foreign Studies and Guangzhou University were declared the winners.



During the ceremony, Salden recited the five poems in French, followed by the winners reading their Chinese translations. Salden praised the students for their good mastery of French and said he was pleased to see many participants in the competition.
