A Brief History of Translation – International Translation Day


September 30th is International Translation Day!

Translation has a long and varied history, stretching as far back as the creation of the Rosetta Stone in 196 B.C. International Translation Day itself is celebrated every year on the feast of Saint Jerome, the first to translate the Bible into Latin and the patron saint of translators. Translation has now become a necessity for those looking to expand their business internationally.

Check out this infographic we made on the history of translation for you to share in celebration of International Translation Day!
