Celebrating International Translation Day with “A Day in the Life of a Translator or Interpreter”

Happy International Translation Day! A United Nations resolution passed in 2017 recognizes International Translation Day (ITD) as the day to pay tribute to the work of language professionals. ATA invites you to celebrate by enjoying and sharing this short video to give our networks a glimpse into the everyday lives of translators and interpreters.


How you can help spread the word

The video will help you get the word out to both your professional and personal network—people who may be unfamiliar with what you do—about the importance of your profession and your role in it.

  • Follow ATA on social media (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram) and share the video on your own social media accounts. You can also visit ATA’s ITD page, download the video, and post it on your own social media accounts. In your social media posts, we would love to see you tell us what a day in your life as a translator or interpreter looks like!
  • Listen in to ATA’s International Translation Day 2019 podcast as Host Matt Baird interviews ATA member Judy Jenner about the role translators and interpreters play in the global community.
  • Schedule a School Outreach presentation in honor of ITD. Now is the time to teach the next generation of translators and interpreters about our exciting and growing profession. Materials and inspiration can be found at ATA’s School Outreach page.

Get out there and tell the world about the important work you do as a language professional!
