    Hello,

    I was wondering how to translate "fellow laureate", in the context of several Nobel prize winners addressing to president Obama, who has himself been awarded with this prize.
    I thought of "co-lauréat", but it means the persons received/ shared the same prize. ANy idea ?

    Thanks !

    I would suggest "co-lauréat"?

    yes, but I think this implies that they've obtained the prize at the same time, they "share" the prize (ex. le prix Nobel est décerné à 2 chercheurs la même année).

    What about "confrère lauréat" ?? I don't really like it...

    Somehow "co-lauréat" makes one think of "copropriétaire" (though cynics would say a lot of them bought it in one way or another). I can't suggest better though. Maybe "collègue" or "confrère" could be involved.

    PS I see you already thought of "confrère" while I was bumbling.

    Pourriez-vous nous donner la phrase complète dans la langue d'origine?

    Globalement ça se traduit juste par "les autres lauréats", avec une touche de compliment, qui nécessite la connaissance de la phrase pour voir comment et où on la place.

    oui, vous avez raison, c'est + clair avec la phrase complète !
    La voici :
    "US President Barack Obama must take the lead in securing a strong global Arms Trade Treaty, a group of 18 Nobel Peace Prize winners said in an open letter delivered to their fellow laureate at the White House."

    "Le président des Etats-Unis Barack Obama doit prendre l'initiative afin d’obtenir un traité mondial vigoureux réglementant le commerce des armes, ont déclaré 18 lauréats du prix Nobel de la paix dans une lettre ouverte adressée jeudi 14 mars à leur co-lauréat de la Maison Blanche."

    Finalement, j'ai gardé co-lauréat...

    Merci pour votre aide !
