International Translation Day

NCW celebrates International Translation Day each year with a special edition of Meet the World focusing on translation around the globe.

Every 30 September, English PEN hosts a programme of talks, workshops and networking opportunities for literary translators, in celebration of International Translation Day (ITD).

English PEN collaborates with the National Centre for Writing to gather events happening throughout the country in celebration of ITD into a nationwide programme.
