The workshop was carried out at the EC Representation in Bulgaria and focused on translation quality requirements, specificities of the work process and coordination with external contractors.

September 26 – The European Day of Languages

Since 2001, September 26 is dedicated to the celebration of European languages.

In order to increase citizens' awareness of multilingualism in Europe, to develop the cultural and linguistic diversity and to promote language learning in and out of school, in 2001 the European Union and the Council of Europe decide to start and announce the initiative called European Year of Languages.

Europe has a real language treasure: 24 official languages and more than 60 local communities who speak a regional or minority language, and also the languages spoken by people of non-European origin and coming from other continents.

Happy 1st of March!

On this day we celebrate the coming of spring after the long winter. We give each other martenitsas to be pinned on clothes or tied on wrists as a charm for good health and happiness. This is an ancient Balkan tradition which goes back to the times when khans adorned their warriors with threads of red and white colour in order to give them strength and good health. This beautiful gift brings a smile, a feeling of joy and rejuvenates the wearer.

We wish you good health, happiness and abundant success!

On this day (19 February according to the Julian calendar) Bulgaria and Bulgarians in various parts of the world celebrate their national holiday — the liberation from the Ottoman rule. Bulgaria, one of the oldest states in Europe, a country that during the centuries contributed the most to the cultural and political development of the Slavic people in Southeastern Europe and the cradle of the two Slavic alphabets, disappeared from the historical map in 1396 when it was conquered by the Ottoman Turks .

For nearly 5 centuries the Bulgarian people lived in isolation and oppression. Nevertheless, it survived and succeeded in conserving its spiritual and cultural achievements from the past through the centuries. What's more – it successfully developed them further, created new ones and conserved its national consciousness among the other peoples within the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire.

November 1st – Day of Bulgarian enlighteners

The Day of Bulgarian enlighteners – November 1st – is one of the brightest dates in Bulgarian holiday calendar.

It was first celebrated in 1909 in Plovdiv, and later in the entire country. In the years 1922–1945 this day of remembrance and gratitude was celebrated officially as a nation-wide holiday, honoring the national self-awareness and spiritual upliftment of the Bulgarian people.

After a nearly half-century discontinuation, celebrating November 1st was renewed in 1992. Today, November 1st is not only a day to honor Bulgarian enlighteners, bookmen, advocates of the Bulgarian revival and builders of modern Bulgaria. It should be a day to think how much is our social conscience enlightened for the moral virtues and fundamental values of the Bulgarian left to us by our ancestors.
