In order to celebrate International Translation Day, I had the idea of launching a big project. The aim is to eventually raise awareness about our profession and to take pride in it!
The main idea is to complete the following sentence: "Translation is...". By September 30, I will publish all the answers received on the blog ( so that we can all get a broader picture of this initiative.
From September 20 to September 30, there will also be interviews with translators. It should be a lot of fun!
Please feel free to share your participation here, on Twitter by using the hashtag #translationis or by contacting me by email ( - please join personal details such as name, language combinations and location so that I can find you online).

Let's have a tremendous International Translation Day this year!
