Today, 23 April, is World Book and Copyright Day. This year’s event coincides with the 80th anniversary of Index Translationum, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) is observing the day under the theme “Books, Translation, Reading and Copyright”. In a message to mark the event, the Director General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, recalls as follows:
"Translation is the first step towards the rapprochement of peoples, and is also a decentralizing experience, teaching diversity and dialogue. Translation is one of the driving principles of our creative diversity, which enriches each language through contact with all the others."
