International Translation Day

Sep 30, 2011 | First Edition Translations, Translation

International Translation Day is celebrated on 30 September to coincide with the feast of St. Jerome, recognised as the patron saint of translators. The celebrations were first set up in 1953 by FIT (International Federation of Translators), and the date became officially recognised in 1991.

The aim of the day is to show the solidarity of the international translation community and to promote the profession across the world. It is seen as an opportunity to showcase a profession that is an essential component of global business.

As a busy translation agency, we rely on our hundreds of professional and dedicated translators and interpreters to satisfy our, and more importantly, our customers’ high standards. They do not let us down. Thanks to you all and long may you translate!
