Happy International Translation Day 2019! Welcome to Happy International Translation Day 2019 content. In this content, you will know about Happy International Translation Day. We will share with you about Happy International Translation Day history, quotes, wishes. cards, Image, Picture, poem. Each year, translators, interpreters and terminologists celebrate International Translation Day on 30 September, the feast of St. Jerome. A unifying theme is chosen each year and a competition is held to design a poster for FIT members to print and use to promote the day and join together in celebrating our professions.
In 2017 we achieved an historical milestone for all professional translators, interpreters and terminologists, with the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopting Resolution A/RES/71/288, recognising the role of professional translation in connecting nations, and fostering peace, understanding and development. In the same resolution, the United Nations General Assembly declared 30 September to be UN International Translation Day, celebrated across the entire UN network. In celebration of 2019, UN International Year of Indigenous Languages, this year’s theme is Translation and Indigenous Languages.
