September 30: World Translation Day
The World Translation Day is marked by the United Nations to pay tribute to the language professionals. By this, the organization plays a crucial role in bringing nations together. This strengthens cooperation, understanding, facilitates dialogues, contributes to development and strengthens world peace and security.
The United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution in 2017 to highlight the role of language professionals and declared September 30 as International Translation day. The event is promoted by the International Federation of Translators.
