Celebrate International Translation Day with Hieroglifs Translations - 20% cheaper for translations!
On 30 September ITD (International Translation Day) - well-known year after year for the feast - Saint Jerome - the Holy Bible translator who's considered to be the patron of linguists. The get-togethers are publicised through the International Federation of Translators from the moment it was set up in 1953. FIT (the International Federation of Translators) released the thought of an officially recognized International Translation Day to indicate solidarity in the world-wide language translation community to be able to market the language translation line of work in different nations (not really primarily in Christian ones) in 1991. It truly is the chance to point out self worth in an sector that is becoming increasingly really important in the time period of ranking up globalization.
Per annum, FIT (the International Federation of Translators) picks a subject matter for the ITD and causes it to be officially found to folks. The topic in the year 2011 - ‘’Translation: Bridging Cultures”. The theme for the year 2012 is “Translation as Intercultural Communication”. This present year, there is certainly still an effort to assist in fruitful social communicating thru translation to lessen borders all over.
During various international locations, many individual linguists and providers enjoy International Translation Day in several methods. They would set up an event, meeting, network and communicate, or handle some form of qualification improvement seminar, convention, lessons, etc. prove to them and advertise ITD throughout the world. Activities and attempts are set up using the motif in the mind.
Simultaneously Hieroglifs Translations with its translation group has prepared an extraordinary gift for you - 20% discounted to translations to/from Romanian language translations in September and October.

2011 November marked the 6th birthday of Hieroglifs Translations Latvia. The Hieroglifs Translations team gathered to celebrate at the Hotel Bergs. In addition to the celebratory festivities, we also reflected back on our accomplishments as well as looked forward to the challenges ahead.
Reinis Zariņš, senior project manager of Hieroglifs Translations Latvia, reviewed the largest projects handled in 2011 as well as discussed which 2011 goals were reached, which 2011 goals were not reached (and why), and new goals for 2012. Board member Irēna Čippa Triškina presented an overview of Hieroglifs Translations Romania.
One of the challenges discussed centered on online translation tools. Many prospective clients use these tools as a shortcut or mistakenly believe them to be an effective alternative to professional translations. We stressed the importance of reminding users of online translation tools of the numerous shortcomings and poor results of these tools. For example, online tools perform word-by-word translations, failing to take the entire sentence or paragraph into context as a live translator does. In addition, online translation tools often replace words with incorrect words, significantly changing the meaning of the text. This leads to either vague or blatantly wrong translations.
We also discussed how emigration has driven demand for notary-approved translations. In the past, the bulk of our work involved educational materials and agreements. Emigration trends offer new opportunities for notary-approved translations for vital records such as marriage and birth certificates.
Both the celebration and the year 2011 ended on a positive note. 2011 brought new clients, new software, and new skills to Hieroglifs Translations. While we are confident that our team has the tools and talents needed to take us into 2012, we know that we must always remain committed to our mission, continue to innovate, and respond to our clients' needs. Based on the positive feedback and suggestions from our clients, we're performing admirably. As another successful year comes to a close, we look forward to the challenges and opportunities that the future promises to bring.
Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated on October 31, which commonly includes activities such as ‘’trick-or-treating’’, visiting haunted attractions, costume parties, playing pranks, telling scary stories and watching horror movies. It is the time of celebration and superstition.
But how people celebrate Halloween in different countries?
In Ireland, which is considered to be the birthplace of Halloween, the day is still celebrated like it is inUnited States. In rural areas, bonfires are lit and children dress up in costumes to spend the evening ‘’trick-or-treating’’ in their neighbourhoods. After the visiting, most people attend parties with their friends, relatives and neighbours. At these parties many games are played – bobbing for apples, treasure hunts with sweets and pastries, also card games with hidden sweets under them, as well as ‘’knock-a-dolly’’, where children knock on the doors but then run away before the door is opened.
In Austria some people leave bread, water and lighted lamp on the table before going to sleep, as it would welcome the dead souls back to earth.
In Belgium people are lighting candles in memory of dead relatives.
In China, the Halloween festival is called Tend Chien. Food and water is placed in front of photographs of family members who have departed while bonfires and lights are lit in order to light the path for dead souls who are visiting the Earth this night.
In Czech Republic, chairs are placed by the fireside on Halloween night. There is one chair for living family member and one for each family member’s spirit.
Unlike most nations of the world, Halloween is not celebrated by the French in order to honour the dead souls; it was even unknown until around 1996. Halloween was regarded as ‘’American’’ holiday. Halloween was heard from foreign residents as well as children found out of it in their English classes and as French love parties then more and more people started to celebrate Halloween – costumed people of all ages going to parties at friend’s homes, restaurants, bars and clubs. The costumes tend to be ‘’scary’’- mummies, ghosts, witches and vampires. Stores, malls and restaurants decorate their windows accordingly. Many companies use Halloween in their ads.
In Germany, the people put away their knives on Halloween night because they do not want to risk harm to or from the returning spirits.
In Hungary, teenagers often have Halloween party, when everyone get costume and play little games. Before Halloween many decorate also their houses with pumpkin lamps.
In Honk Kong, the celebration is called ‘’Yue Lan’’. People burn pictures of fruit and money this time as it is believed that these images would bring comfort to the ghosts.
In Italy, Halloween was popularized between the 20th and 21st centuries by television and merchandising coming fromUSA. As a result in 2009 already 10 million people announced that they are celebrating Halloween. Now throughoutItaly you will see carved pumpkins and costumed kids. In some areas you can find tours of medieval towers, castles and catacombs lined with mummies and bones.
In Japan, people do not celebrate a western-style Halloween. The Japanese celebrate the ‘’Obon Festival’’, which is also dedicated to the spirits of ancestors. Special food is prepared and bright red lanterns are hung everywhere, memorial stones are cleaned and community dances performed, candles and fires are lit everywhere in order to show their ancestors where their families might be found. Traditionally, in rural areas where gravesites are in the neighbourhood, the pathway from the graves to the home is swept clean, and a general house-cleaning is also done. On the 13th the altar is set up with various food offerings, and welcoming fires are set in front of the house to welcome the spirits. On the 15th ‘’send-off-fires’’ are lit, and spirits return to their graves. ‘’Obon Festival’’ takes place during July or August.
In Korea, the festival similar to Halloween is known as ‘’Chusok’’. The families pay respect to their ancestors by visiting their tombs and making offerings of rice and fruits.
In Latvia, people celebrate ‘’Candle evening’’ when candles are lit on the graves of their ancestors. It symbolizes eternity for dead souls.
In Romania, Halloween is celebrated around the myth of Dracula on October 31. InTransylvania there are many costumer parties. Also the spirit of Dracula is believed to live there because the town was the site of many witch trials.
Halloween is becoming more and more popular all over the world. Thanks to American movies other countries find out more and more of Halloween and decide to celebrate it. Still in many countries Halloween is a work day but it does not stop people to give their respect to the dead souls and to have fun with their friends, relatives and neighbours.
Hieroglifs Translations is wishing all happy Halloween day.
