A very special holiday is coming up this week – International Translation Day is September 30! Come celebrate with ATISDA this Saturday morning on October 1 as we spend time with fellow language professionals and learn about work-life balance tips from life coach Ron Jenson.
Here are all the details on the event and some background about the holiday from ATISDA President Yolanda Secos:
Happy International Translation Day 2016!
International Translation Day is celebrated every year on September 30th, the feast of Saint Jerome. He is best known as the translator of the Bible into Latin and is considered the patron saint of translators. This celebration is an opportunity to show pride in our profession by promoting it to others and educate the general public on the role and importance of translators and interpreters.
The theme for International Translation Day is selected by the International Federation of Translators. This year’s theme is Connecting Worlds. Congratulations to the American Translators Association (ATA), who proposed the winning theme!
More on the theme for International Translation Day 2016: Connecting Worlds is available at this site.
As in past years, the Association of Translators & Interpreters in the San Diego Area (ATISDA) will celebrate this special day. Our annual International Translation Day Celebration will be held on Saturday, October 1st, at The Broken Yolk Cafe in Carmel Mountain (San Diego). We will gather to eat a delicious breakfast buffet, which will be served at 10:30 a.m. America’s Life Coach, Ron Jenson, will inspire us to achieve work-life balance and, until 12:30 p.m., we will have time to mingle and hear the latest news about ATISDA. Our raffle and swag bags are back by popular demand!
You would not want to miss all the fun, right?
