International Translation Day 2015


International Translation Day 

Sept 30

Dear Members

Happy International Translation Day! The International Federation of Translators (FIT) created this celebration in 1991. As you know they are our most recent collaborative partner organisation. WASLI wants to thank them for starting this tradition and join in the celebration.

Thank you, interpreters and translators from every WASLI region, for your commitment to exceptional service to the communities in which you live and work.  Interpreters play such an important role in ensuring that all members of our diverse society can exercise their human rights by using their language.

Today we celebrate with you, and wish you a wonderful day that marks the profession of signed language interpreting.

Warm regards to all,

Debra Russell, on behalf of the WASLI Executive Board
