30 SEPTEMBER INTERNATIONAL TRANSLATION DAY
September 30 is celebrated worldwide as International Translation Day. It is a day dedicated to the work of language professionals, including translators, interpreters, and others, who play a vital role in bringing nations together. Translation facilitates dialogue, understanding, and cooperation, making it essential to recognize the contributions of this professional community in the globalized era. The theme for 2023 is “Translation unveils the many faces of humanity.” This theme highlights the importance of acknowledging the significant role that translation plays in people’s lives and provides a window into other cultures. As climate and geopolitical shocks resonate across the globe, translation plays a prominent role in addressing threats to global peace and security, diplomacy and multilateralism, sustainable development and humanitarian aid, as well as human dignity and human rights.
