International Translation Day

Winning FIT poster 2020, by Liza Gunenko

30 September was International Translation Day, this year celebrated under the shadow of Covid-19.

In 2017 the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution recognising the role of professional translation in connecting nations, and fostering peace, understanding and development. The same resolution declared 30 September to be UN International Translation Day.

Check out more details on the FIT website and at the United Nations.
