International Translation Day 2018

International Translation Day is celebrated every year on 30 September on the feast of St Jerome. St. Jerome is famous for his Latin translation of the Bible from Hebrew (known as the Vulgate) and is considered to be the patron saint of translators. 

Expert linguists play a pivotal role in our modern world!

Over the past week, translators worldwide once again have seized this opportunity to spread the word about translation and draw the public’s attention to the pivotal role that expert linguists play in our modern world.

The Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) has teamed up with the Association of Translation Companies (ATC) and launched a social media campaign to raise the profile of the translation industry. Translators getting involved in the campaign have used the hashtags #thisistranslation, #ITD2018 and #ITImorethanwords.
