World Translation Day – 30th September
For all communication heroes who break the language barrier
International Translation Day is celebrated every year on 30th September on the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered the patron saint of translators.
The celebrations have been promoted by International Federation of Translators (FIT) ever since it was setup in 1953. It is celebrated to show solidarity of the world wide translation community in an effort to promote the translation profession in different countries.
This is an opportunity to display pride in a profession that is becoming increasingly essential in the era of progressing globalisation.
Have a great day!
