Did you know that on September, 30th we celebrate the International Translation Day?  Not too many people know that the International Translation Day is celebrated every year on 30 September on the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered the patron saint of translators.  International Translation Day has been observed for the first time in 1953.

What is the connection between the hostel industry and translation?  The hostel business is very competitive these days, especially in Australia.  If you decide to stay at a Manly hostel you will discover at the hostel many international students and backpackers.  They come with different customs, culinary tastes and they speak different languages.  It is true that most of them speak English, but it feels great when you can discuss from time to time in your own language.  Many hostel owners know how important it is to provide useful information in various languages to the international guests.  An accurate translation of the documents is extremely important.  Unfortunately, more and hostels overlook to translate certain guides and useful tips for their guests.  This does not happen at Manly Bunkhouse.  The French owner, Cathy Carney and her friendly team speak fluent French, Portuguese and Spanish.
