Keep reading this article and find out all about what makes this day special.
The origin of this day
Are you curious about the origins of International Translation Day? We will tell you all about it: the choice of September 30th for International Translation Day is significant because it is believed to be the feast day of St. Jerome, a historical figure renowned for his contributions to the field of biblical translation.
St. Jerome, also known as Hieronymus, was a Christian priest, scholar, and theologian who lived during the 4th and 5th centuries AD.
The saint’s significance in the world of translation is immense. He is perhaps best known for his translation of the Bible from its original languages (Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek) into Latin.
This translation, known as the Vulgate, became the standard Latin version of the Bible for the Western Christian Church and had a profound influence on Western literature and language.
St. Jerome’s commitment to accuracy and his linguistic skills made his translation work highly regarded, and he is now known as the Patron Saint of translators, librarians and scholars.
