Did you known that September 30th is International Translation Day, a day to honor the work of translators around the world?
Here at Language Connections we love to celebrate the hard work our translators do. This year, we are taking the opportunity to show our appreciation for the efforts of our expert linguists by sharing the sheer volume of work our translators have produced in the six most commonly requested languages, over the course of just the past nine months!
The History of International Translation Day
International Translation Day was created by the FIT (International Federation of Translators) in 1953 to establish an annual event bringing together professionals in the translation and interpreting community.
The event provides the chance for those in the industry to discuss important issues and celebrate their successes.
September 30th was chosen because it is the feast day of St. Jerome, who was the first to translate the Bible from Greek into Latin, making it available to a larger audience. As a result of his efforts, he became the patron saint of translators.
