Detail from Saint Jerome in his Study (Ghirlandaio, 1480)
International Translation Day is celebrated each year on September 30, which is traditionally the feast of Saint Jerome, an early Bible translator who is considered the patron saint of translators.
Talon has been publishing fiction in translation for more than 25 years, so we’re marking the occasion with a two-week special! Between September 21 and October 2, save 25% on all translated Talonbooks.
To take advantage of this window of opportunity, order online from our specials page, or place your order by phone and request the Translators’ Day Special. (Reach us at 604-444-4889 or 1-888-445-4176 from outside Vancouver, and don’t worry: when you call Talonbooks, you get a real person on the other end of the line.)
Translators do difficult work; they must be meticulous and thorough, and their work affective and accessible. The fruits of their labour are enjoyed in a variety of contexts in our increasingly global community, and we thank them for it. Happy International Translators Day!
