Year 11 pupils took part in a languages workshop with a Freelance Translator, Jae Marple. Jae is able to choose which work he takes on and has tailored his career to his passion, translating for the Football industry. Most recently, Jae has been translating articles for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and the FIFA Women’s U19 World Cup in India. He has been fortunate enough to create transcriptions of press conferences and interviews with famous managers and players, including Arsène Wenger and Patrick Vieira for the Invincible documentary. Jae speaks many languages, but specialises in Spanish and French. He set our year 11 French pupils a challenge, to translate an article he had to complete himself for the World Cup. Pupils enjoyed translating real life material and dived into the challenge of decoding unfamiliar phrases and words, using their knowledge of the football industry.
