International Translation Day

On this International Translation Day, the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) have the opportunity to pay homage to all those language specialists who work, day after day, to promote better communication among all.

Whether through translation or interpretation, these people play an essential role in our congregation and other organizations. They bring clarity to the messages conveyed and promote enriching professional and personal exchanges.

Remember that this day was created by the United Nations General Assembly on May 24, 2017. Resolution 71/288 thus wishes to emphasize the “crucial role of language professionals in connecting nations and fostering peace, understanding and development.”

The date of September 30th marks the death of Saint Jerome, recognized as the patron saint of translators. We owe him the translation of the Bible. It is a way of paying tribute to him.

Good day to our team of translators and interpreters living all over the world!
