Happy International Translation Day!


Dear Translators, 

Happy International Translation Day!

May your vocabulary be as abundant as the stars in the sky, may your memory be as fresh as a daisy and may your brain never announce a strike on the eve of a deadline!

You bring diverse and distant cultures closer together and make the world a friendlier place to live in.

Translators, you rock!

We extend our best wishes also to friends and families of translators:

*To all who at least once in their lives were asked, ‘Do you mind having a quick look at my translation?’ And then given a 300-page print-out 🙂 ;

*To all who in the middle of a conversation noticed their interlocutor-translator’s eyes becoming hazy (a sign that their mind has drifted off to the latest translation project left in their office);

*To all whose plans for the weekend or holiday had to be changed, because their companion-translator received an urgent, last-minute job.

Dear families and friends of translators, thank you for your support and understanding.

And last but not least: 

Our readers – happy International Translation Day to you too! 

You are the reason writers write and translators translate. 

Have a great day everyone!

Happy International Translation Day
