Translation and Interpreting: Connecting Worlds
Unissant les mondes grâce à la traduction et à l’interprétation
The theme for International Translation Day 2016 has been found among many good proposals. Congratulations to the American Translators’ Association (ATA) who proposed the winning theme!
The world of the translator and the world of the interpreter are two professions dedicated to one goal: facilitating communication between people. As the world becomes more integrated, fostering understanding between the multitude of speakers is more critical than ever. Whether it is in writing or in speech. Interpreters and translators are at the junction point that impacts the development of business, science, medicine, technology, international law, politics and a host of other areas. We provide the ability for each of these worlds to learn from each other to the benefit of society as a whole. The role of translators and interpreters in connecting worlds is to open up the whole world to all of us.
