Happy International Translator’s Day!

Posted: 10/28/2011 in Web writing

 

The 30th of September we honor St. Jerome, the patron saint of translators and interpreters. St. Jerome is one of the greatest biblical scholars of all time and earned his place in history mainly for his revisions of the Gospels and the Psalms and translations of the Old and New Testaments into Latin.

This painting of St. Jerome by the Italian Renaissance painter Domenico Ghirlandaio (circa 1480) is located in the church of Ognissanti, in Florence, Italy.

For 57 years, September 30th has had a special meaning to translators and interpreters all over the globe.

Happy International Translator’s day everyone!
