The patron saint for the translators

Today, the 30th of September it is the day of St Jerome. He is best known as the translator of the bible from Greek and Hebrew into Latin. He is recognized by the Vatican as a Doctor of the Church. It is also the "International Translation Day".

WiktionaryZ will be a tool for everyone, it welcomes people from all countries and languages. Typically there is not that much political or religious to be found. This does not mean that we should not take a moments notice; we had Ramadan as the word of the day, and today I blog about St Jerome.

Thanks,
