The International Translation Day is celebrated every year on September 30 in a number of ways: online or in person, scholarly or informally, at a small scale or at national level, traditional yearly events or new ideas every year. It is also a great opportunity to collaborate with other entities related to the book industry – such as libraries, bookshops, publishers, book clubs – and make new contacts – such as other translators, cultural press, venues to host your event and so on.

Anyway you chose to celebrate the translators in your country, this is one important date that brings benefits and joy.

Have a look at the ideas below, put into practice in the past years by associations all over Europe:
