During the 71st International Translation Day Session, the General Assembly of the United Nations unanimously passed Resolution A/RES/71/288, paying tribute to the role of the language professions in fostering peace, understanding and development.
We celebrate International Translation Day every year on September 30th on St. Jerome Feast Day. As the translator of the Bible, he is considered to be the Patron Saint of translators. The International Federation of Translators organizes the event annually. Every year, the theme is different.
