Celebrating the work of language professionals
It has never been more important to publicly acknowledge and pay tribute to the work of language professionals working around the globe to promote openness, unity and collaboration.
Join us during the week leading up to International Translation Day 2018 on Sunday 30th September when we will be celebrating the immense impact of language service providers on every society and economy the world over. Take part in our social media campaign, delivered jointly with our friends and partners at the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI).
Tell your friends and colleagues too and encourage them to join this industry-wide grass-roots celebration of our craft.

Collectively, the work of those in our industry touches every strand of every sector from manufacturing to agriculture, medical research to the justice system. Work takes place across time zones and cultures to support scientific advances, diplomatic breakthroughs and multi-million pound trade deals. Last year the United Nations resolved to observe International Translation Day, signalling the important role language professionals also play in diplomacy services and the ongoing campaign for global peace and security.
