5 things you didn’t know about International Translation Day

5 things you didn’t know about International Translation Day

On this year’s International Translation Day, we would like to draw attention to some lesser-known—but no less astonishing—facts about the day itself and translation in general.

Did you know…?

  1. The first International Translation Day was celebrated in 2017. In May of that year, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 71/288 on “The role of professional translation in connecting nations and fostering peace, understanding and development,” which declares September 30 International Translation Day. Why this date? Because…
  2. September 30 is the day of the feast of St. Jerome, patron saint of translators. Born in Stridon (located in modern-day Croatia) in the year 342, Jerome grew up speaking the now-dead Illyrian language. At school, he became proficient in Latin and Greek, learned Hebrew from a friend, and got to work translating religious Hebrew texts into Greek. This eventually led to work revising and expanding the Latin translations of biblical texts available at the time. His translation of the Bible eventually made up the bulk of the Latin-language text used by the Catholic Church for centuries after. The entire Bible has since been translated into 698 languages, making it the most widely translated literary work.
  3. The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been translated into over 500 languages, making it the most widely translated document. Some of the languages you can read it in are nearly extinct, for example Pipil, also known as Nawat. Spoken by the Pipil people in El Salvador, the language only had 20 native speakers when the UN document was translated in 1987.
  4. The UN resolution creating International Translation Day was signed by 11 countries … none of which belong to the EU. Nor did any of the top 10 global economic superpowers sign the document. Maybe they weren’t there because their invitation to the event had been poorly translated…?
  5. The last thing you need to know about translation is also the most important thing…it’s easy! All you have to do to get a high-quality translation is send your documents to wordinc for a non-binding quote, or book a free 30-minute consultation on your next big multilingual project. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
