International Translation Day – Let’s Celebrate!

Last updated on August 23rd, 2019 at 10:03 am

International Translation Day has arrived once again! For JR Language, this means celebrating our most valuable assets: the hundreds of translators who work hard to deliver professional, reliable and on-time translations so people all over the world can communicate effectively. Translation services are not a commodity; they are the key to new markets, new ideas and new friends! The deciding factor between a failed or successful business venture; between taking the correct dosage of a prescribed medicine or going back to the hospital with a worsened condition; between winning or losing a legal battle. Good translations equals good communication and, after all, isn’t that what we really need?

The International Translation Day is celebrated every year on September 30th, on the same day of the feast of Saint Jerome, patron of translators and the translator of the Bible into Latin. Today, we celebrate and thank Saint Jerome for his intellectual curiosity, language knowledge and for knowing it was important for people to have access to the same information. His work made way for us modern-day translators!
