International Translation Day 2022, A World Without Barriers: Translation and Interpretation in Indigenous Languages
Translation Commons (TC) in partnership with UNESCO will celebrate the International Translation Day (ITD) on 30 September 2022. The International Translation Day aims to raise awareness of the importance of professional translation as it brings nations together, facilitates dialogue, understanding and cooperation, contributes to development and strengthens world peace and security. This year’s theme is A World Without Barriers: Translation and Interpretation in Indigenous Languages. The partners will co-organize an online event providing a space for dialogue among translators, interpreters and language specialists working with Indigenous and other languages from all over the world. Various topics related to the translation and interpretation of Indigenous languages including their use by interpreters in the legal and judicial systems, policy frameworks, access to language resources, capacity building, and the development of translation technologies for the preservation and promotion of these languages among others will be covered.
