International Translation Day observed on 30 September: Details, Aim, Significance, History

The International Translation Day is observed every year on 30 September around the world. The date 30 September was chosen to celebrate the feast of Bible translator St Jerome, who is considered as a patron saint of translators.

The International Translation Day aims to recognise the contribution of unsung heroes behind international diplomacy who work as language professionals to facilitate dialogue and contribute to the development and strengthens world peace and security

The International Translation Day also identifies transposition of literary or scientific work from one language into another language as indispensable to preserve clarity, climate, and productiveness in international public communication. 

The International Translation Day was instituted by United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in May 2017 by adopting resolution 71/288 after considering the importance of the role played by language professionals in connecting nations and fostering peace, understanding, and development.

The International Translation Day was first observed by the United Nations on 30th September 2017.
