Iris Schrijver wins the Young
The Young Scholar Prize Committee received
42 submissions before the deadline on 31 January 2016, and
went to work on assessing them immediately after. After a
long selection process, which involved many assessments
generously provided by external experts, the members of the
Committee agreed that the prize should be awarded to Dr.
Iris Schrijver, now junior lecturer at the University of
Antwerp, for her thesis entitled The translator as text
producer: the effects of writing training on transediting
and translation performance.
