30 September: International Translation Day
The International Translation Day was on 30 September 2016 observed across the world with the theme Translation and Interpreting: Connecting Worlds.
This is the annual event for the translation community and event is marked with a series of dedicated events, seminars and symposiums across the world.
• The Day was established in 1953 by the International Federation of Translators (FIT).
• It is celebrated every year on 30 September on the feast of St Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered the patron saint of translators.
• In 1991, FIT launched the idea of an officially recognised International Translation Day to show solidarity of the worldwide translation community in an effort to promote the translation profession.
