HAppy translation day！
September 30th marks International Translation Day, and BELINK4U® would like to extend our warmest wishes to all language professionals and learners! Language professionals play an important role in uniting countries, promoting dialogue, understanding, and cooperation, driving development, as well as strengthening world peace and security. Therefore, the United Nations General Assembly declared September 30th as International Translation Day to show appreciation to language professionals.
This year’s theme for International Translation Day is “A World Without Barriers”. As a partner of the Workplace Innovation Course at the European College of Xi’an Foreign Studies University, BELINK4U® has invited the retired former Deputy Commercial Counselor of the Argentine Consulate in Guangzhou, Mr. Mario, to give an engaging online lesson to the students of Xi’an Foreign Studies University.
Mr. Mario shared that there are 45 million people speaking Spanish in Spain and 42 million people speaking Spanish in the United States. Language is the basic element of communication, and translation can link the entire world. A world without barriers cannot be achieved without language translation. Language has a complex impact on identity recognition, communication, social integration, education, and development, and is of strategic importance to humanity and the planet.
Mr. Mario also mentioned that language plays an essential role in sustainable development, ensuring cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue, promoting universal quality education, strengthening cooperation, building an inclusive knowledge society, and protecting cultural heritage, as well as mobilizing the use of scientific and technological achievements for sustainable development.
At BELINK4U®, our mission has always been to build bridges with language. The theme of International Translation Day 2022, “A World Without Barriers”, echoes our efforts. We wish all language professionals and learners a happy International Translation Day!
