Did you know?
International Translation Day is celebrated every year on 30 September
on the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered as
the patron saint of translators. The celebrations have been promoted
by FIT (the International Federation of Translators) ever since it was
set up in 1953. In 1991 FIT launched the idea of an officially
recognized International Translation Day to show solidarity of the
worldwide translation community in an effort to promote the
translation profession in different countries (not necessarily only in
Christian ones). This is an opportunity to display pride in a
profession that is becoming increasingly essential in the era of
progressing globalization.

Quotes for translation-

2. “Translation is at best an echo.” - George Borrow
3. “Prayer is translation. A man translates himself into a child
asking for all there is in a language he has barely mastered.” -
Leonard Cohen
4. “As far as modern writing is concerned, it is rarely rewarding to
translate it, although it might be easy. Translation is very much like
copying paintings.” - Boris Pasternak
