Happy International Translation Day 2016  In Greek Translations

As we all know, September is the month the world celebrates translation. On the 30th of September is the International Translation Day, an annual celebration which was established by the International Federation of Translators back in 1991 in an attempt to pay tribute to the work of translators who struggle to make the world a better place by breaking down language barriers and embracing worldwide communication.

So, this day gives us the opportunity to get together, do some networking, discuss important issues of the industry, get inspired by colleagues, and yes, have some fun. But most of all, we all have the chance to celebrate the contribution of translation profession around the globe.

There are many events and conferences taking place worldwide. Here are the ones I picked out for you:
