International Translation Day is celebrated on September 30th each year to honor professional translators and interpreters and to recognize the work of language professionals who have made significant contributions to the era of globalization.

History of International Translation Day

In 1991 the International Association of Translators (FIT) launched the idea of ​​an International Official Translators Day to recognize the global community of translators and interpreters and to promote the translation profession worldwide. .

On May 24, 2017, the General Assembly of the United Nations passed a resolution declaring September 30 to be International Translation Day.

The date, September 30th, was chosen because it is the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is also considered the patron saint of translators.

Importance of International Translation Day

ITD is an opportunity to recognize the work of language professionals who work to bring countries closer, understand and work together, facilitate dialogue, contribute to development while strengthening peace and security.

Translation is important for creating clarity, for maintaining a positive climate and productivity, both in interpersonal communication and in international public debate.

This day makes people aware of the role languages ​​play in all situations, large and small, both in talking to someone and in strengthening collaboration.

International Translation Day 2021

Each year, the FIT chooses a theme for the International Day. This year's theme is “United in Translation”, which preserves cultural heritage and promotes the idea of ​​cross-border communication.
