Project: International Translation Day

Since 2010 we have been delighted to organise an annual symposium for the translation community, held on the feast day of Saint Jerome, the patron saint of translators. International Translation Day provides an opportunity for translators, students, publishers, booksellers, librarians, bloggers and reviewers to gather and debate significant issues and developments within the sector, to discuss challenges and to celebrate success.

Originally hosted at Free Word Centre, ITD has gone from strength to strength and has been hosted at the British Library since 2013.
