International Translation Day 2009: Working together

Every year since 1953 on the 30th September, the feast of St. Jerome, the patron saint of translators, interpreters and librarians, International Translation Day is celebrated. Since 1991 this day is officially promoted by the International Federation of Translators. Every year the celebration has a different theme, with this year’s theme being Working together. The IFT invites translators around the world to take a fresh look at why and how it pays to join forces.
