Established in 1953, World Translation Day is celebrated every year on 30 September, the same day as the Feast of St. Jerome. Considered to be the patron saint of translators, St. Jerome was the author of the Vulgate, a translation and revision of the Bible into Latin.

Starting from this year 2021, the Italian Cultural Institute of Berlin will mark the event by organizing a series of meetings between authors and translators.

Opening the series on 30 September 2021 will be the writer Claudio Magris and his German-language translator, Anna Leube. Maria Carolina Foi, the Director of the Institute, will introduce and moderate the event.

The meeting, in Italian with simultaneous translation into German, will be broadcast on the Institute’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
