International Translators Day …
Happy International Translators Day to all. A very big thank you to all translators across the globe for all the good works that they do for humanity. This has been one great way of making the world a village – bridging understanding from one culture to another. Keep the spirit up.
Following info is from Wiki:
International Translation Day is celebrated every year on 30 September on the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered the patron saint of translators. The celebrations have been promoted by FIT (the International Federation of Translators) ever since it was set up in 1953. In 1991 FIT launched the idea of an officially recognised International Translation Day to show solidarity of the worldwide translation community in an effort to promote the translation profession in various countries (not necessarily only in Christian ones). This is an opportunity to display pride in a profession that is becoming increasingly essential in the era of progressing globalisation.
Leo ni siku ya wafasiri ya kimataifa. Wafasiri ni watu ambao wametoa mchango mkubwa sana katika kuiunganisha dunia. Natumia fursa hii kuwapongeza na kuwataka wasichoke … waendeleze kazi yao hii nzuri kwa manufaa ya walimwengu wote popote walipo na hasa katika kukuza maelewano na welewa wa tamaduni nyingine. Tuendelee kuwepo.
