Happy “International Translation Day” folks! Yes, it’s a genuine event or celebration that falls on the 30th September. Apparently today is the feast of St Jerome. Never heard of him? Well, neither had I until today. Apparently he’s the guy who carried out the mind-boggling task of translating the world’s most popular book; yes, you guessed it, the Bible. Understandably then, in my opinion, he has become the patron saint of translators!
You might need a little help from St Jerome to follow this…..
