In 1991 FIT (http://www launched the idea of an officially recognised International Translation Day so that the worldwide translation community could show solidarity in promoting the translation profession in different countries. International Translation Day is celebrated every year on 30 September – the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered the patron saint of translators.

To underline the importance of translation and of solidarity within the translation community Café Europe in Mons, the French institute of Bosnia-Herzegovina and PEN Bosnia-Herzegovina will organise an event in the city of Mons (Belgium), the cultural capital of Europe 2015.

The event, which will take place on 30 September, 4.00 to 5.30 pm, will be attended by, amongst others, writer and translator Jasna Šamić and Françoise Wuilmart, translator and director of CETL and CTLS.
