International Translation Day 2017 – Translation and Diversity

The International Federation of Translators (FIT) has announced the poster for the International Translation Day / Journée mondiale de la traduction 2017 with the theme, ‘Translation and Diversity’ / Traduction et diversité.

The year 2017 marks an historical milestone for all professional translators, interpreters and terminologists, with the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopting Resolution A/RES/71/288, recognising the role of professional translation in connecting nations, and fostering peace, understanding and development.

In the same resolution, the United Nations General Assembly declared 30 September to be UN International Translation Day, celebrated across the entire UN network.

For full details see the FIT-IFT website here, where you can also download the press release in English, the bilingual poster in three formats, and an email signature. Communiqué de presse en français : cliquez ici.

Let’s make sure we pass this on to as many people as we can!
