I am busy getting everything packed into a truck for my move tomorrow, but I couldn’t let the day go by without saying Happy Translation Day!
If you are a translator, interpreter, or linguist, congratulations on being part of such a varied and important field. Your career helps other professionals around the world communicate with their colleagues across the language barrier, sharing ideas and promoting better understanding of “the Other.”
If you are one of those professionals who relies on translators to talk for you, so you can focus on the details of your chosen career, thank you for allowing us to put our talents to use for you. What’s one man’s chore is another one’s fun!
