A selection of worldwide events that await you on International Translation Day 2017

September 21, 2017

International Translation Day was first established by the International Federation of Translators. The date, September 30th was chosen, because it is also the feast day of St. Jerome, patron saint of translators, who was the first person to translate the Bible into Latin.
ITD is also a celebration. The celebration of every professional who help making the world a smaller place. One form of this celebration would be joining a translation-related event held near your residence or even online.

ITD2017 is just around the corner. Here is a list of exciting events that you can attend this Saturday.

3. If you live in Hungary: Őszi fordítói konferencia a BME Tolmács- és Fordítóképző Központ rendezésében

A BME Tolmács- és Fordítóképző Központja idén 2017. szeptember 29-30-án rendezi meg őszi konferenciáját, amely a fordítás értékelésének kérdését állítja a középpontba. A konferencia ebben az évben az Európai Bizottság Fordítási Főigazgatósága, az OFFI valamint a Kilgray együttműködésével valósul meg, így az oktatókat érintő témákon kívül az Európai Unió fordítószolgálatainak munkája során felmerülő kérdésekről, a magyar fordítópiaci trendekről és a fordítók számára elérhető technológiai újdonságokról is tájékozódhatnak az érdeklődők.
