Translator’s Day at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina

15 October 2012, Conference Centre, Lecture Hall

This is a new annual event that marks the efforts of Egyptian translators who bridge language gaps and act as ambassadors of cultures and civilizations. The event will take place on Monday, 15 October 2012, to coincide with the birthday of the Egyptian pioneer Rifa'a al-Tahtawi (1801-1873), in recognition of his role in establishing the first Egyptian school of translation as well as other specialized translation departments for mathematics, physics and humanities.
