International Translation Day

International Translation Day

 ;

On 30 September language practitioners the world over celebrate International Translation Day (ITD). The day was instituted by Unesco upon the suggestion of the International Federation of Translators (FIT: www.fit-ift.org). This particular date was selected as it is the feastday of St Jerome, the patron saint of translators.
 ;
International Translation Day offers an opportunity to draw attention to the importance of translators and interpreters in the world. These language practitioners often remain invisible and unacknowledged, yet their work makes a huge contribution to communication and interaction in all sorts of spheres, particularly in today's globalised world. ;

 ;

Each year FIT selects a theme for International Translation Day.
