International Translation Day

International Translation Day

International Translation Day was established in 1953. The International Federation of Translators established the annual celebration to honor the efforts of translators to make the world a better place. They break down language barriers and allow great literature to be shared more widely. Because of the increasing opportunities for international travel, and globalization of trade markets, translators are seen as having a growing importance.

International Translation Day is celebrated with a variety of events, seminars, and symposiums around the globe. International Translation Day coincides with St. Jerome’s feast day. This priest and Christian scholar was the first to translate the Bible from Hebrew into Latin, making it more accessible to wider audiences. St. Jerome is the Patron Saint of Translators.
