In the run-up to the UN’s designation of 2019 as the Year of Indigenous Languages, the International Federation of Translators (FIT) chose Translation: Promoting Cultural Heritage in Changing Times as the theme for this year’s International Translation Day.
The theme highlights a rapidly changing world where communities long separated by language and culture suddenly find themselves face-to-face. Translation and interpreting promotes the understanding of these cultural heritages so necessary to mutual respect.
