Spanish Culture: Celebrating the National Hispanic Heritage Month

Last updated on November 1st, 2016 at 10:04 pm

National Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in the United States from September 15 to October 15. This time-frame was chosen in 1968 by President Lyndon Johnson to acknowledge the Independence Day of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. During this period, Mexico, and Chile also celebrate their Independence, and Columbus Day falls within the 30-days time-frame. 

As a translation company, and a part of the Hispanic Community in the United States, JR Language celebrates the Hispanic culture every day through high quality Spanish translation services and professionally localized documents for the Spanish market. Our mission is to help our clients communicate effectively with the Hispanic community to create long-lasting relationships.

Before the celebration ends, we want to celebrate the National Hispanic Heritage Month by recognizing all the translators, linguist, interpreters, project managers, and business people who help bridge the gap between Spanish speakers and the rest of the world.
