;   Medical Translation Insight: International Translation Day is chance for unity - ForeignExchange Translations

September 30 is International Translation DayBelated best wishes to all of our translator colleagues!

The annual celebration coincides with the the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered as the patron saint of translators. The celebrations have been promoted by FIT [PDF link] and have steadily gained traction since being officially launched in 1991. The South African Translators' Institute has a good overview of the holiday [PDF link].

It's interesting to see linguists the world over (not just Christians) accept and celebrate this holiday. It's a rare show of unity in our profession.

After you've recovered from the celebrations, be sure to subscribe to Medical Translation Insight via email or RSS!
