(1) United Nations adopts International Translation Day
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On May 24, the United Nations passed a resolution to adopt September 30 as International Translation Day.

"This resolution is about the under-appreciated role of language in the life of our human society. We feel that this deserves further discussion, perhaps legal protection of those translators working in conflict zones and in situations of higher risks," said Andrei Dapkiunas, Permanent Representative of Belarus to the United Nations.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(2) Improvements to the translation center
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Several improvements were implemented on the translation center powered by ProZ.com and made available to Business members:

- Default instructions to be used as templates for all your jobs
- Deactivation of clients, to prevent the posting of hew work on their behalf while enabling the completion of pending jobs.
- Improved messages to translators invited to the operation
- Overhaul of the job pages
- Translators enabled to deactivate their profiles in the translation center
- Mass deletion of unaccepted invitations
