We’re celebrating International Translation Day on September 30, 2018.

This celebration is meant as an opportunity to pay tribute to the work of language professionals, which plays an important role in bringing nations together, facilitating dialogue, understanding and cooperation, contributing to development and strengthening world peace and security.

Transposition of a literary or scientific work, including technical work, from one language into another language, professional translation, including translation proper, interpretation and terminology, is indispensable to preserving clarity, a positive climate and productiveness in international public discourse and interpersonal communication.

Happy International Translation Day to all our members!

SAVE THE DATE. Our Critical Link International 9 Organizing Committee is deep in the planning of yet another exciting CLI conference. We hope to see you all on June 14, 2019 in Tokyo. Stay tuned to CLI social media and check back on this website for updates. The Call for Papers will be issued August-September 2018.
