Transfluent celebrates International Translation Day

“Without translation, I would be limited to the borders of my own country. The translator is my most important ally. He introduces me to the world. “ 

-Italo Calvino

Since 1991, the International Federation of Translators (FIT) has been promoting the idea of an officially recognized celebratory day to show solidarity among the worldwide translation community and promote the translation profession all across the globe.

 

According to FIT, “both localization and source-culture-specific translation are challenging intellectual tasks that involve much more than mechanically matching up the words and phrases of two languages. Only skilled human translators are able to perform these creative types of translation, which help us maintain our own culture and learn from other cultures, respectively.”

 

Luckily, FIT’s efforts have not been futile. In May 24, 2017, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution declaring September 30 as International Translation Day, an act to recognize the role of professional translation in connecting nations.
