About International Translation Day

Every International Translation Day (ITD – 30 September), English PEN hosts a programme of talks, workshops and networking opportunities for literary translators.

In 2022, ITD expanded into a two-day programme in collaboration with the British Library, with an in-person day at Conway Hall, London, on Thursday 29 September and an online day on Friday 30 September. Explore the programme by clicking “English PEN programme” below.

English PEN and the National Centre for Writing also partner annually to gather events happening throughout the country in celebration of ITD into a nationwide programme.

English PEN’s ITD programme is generously supported by the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS).
