International Translation Day

International Translation Day
Translators, interpreters and terminology creators deserve some extra attention today along with their work, which significantly helps other professions.

The entire world is globalizing, interconnecting, and in many cases, we won’t be able to complete the trip around without translations - whether it's a translation regarding technical manuals, medical information or trade agreements.

Thanks to translators we are also able to read the world's literature without even needing to know the language of the original piece. Without their help, many interesting historical or present-day works would not have made it into our libraries.

Thus, this holiday acts as an opportunity for translators, interpreters, students and publishers to discuss significant language problems or boast of their previous successes.
