International Mother Language Day

International Mother Language Day

Languages are the most powerful way to preserve and develop culture and to promote it all across the world.

International Mother Language Day was first announced by UNESCO on November 17, 1999. Since then it is celebrated every year on 21st February. Its emergence took place to promote the awareness of language and cultural diversity all across the globe. The date represents the day “21st February 1952” when four young students were killed in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, because of Bengali and Urdu language controversy.

Language is a vital tool and it is a strong means to communicate thoughts and ideas. It forges relationships, cultural connections, and economic associations.

Every year universities approach multiple nations to maintain and enrich multicultural student diversity on their campuses. While doing so a regional language plays a major role in attracting international student strength. Communicating and providing information in one’s own mother language is always an advantage and the same develops a personal connect.

The role of translation in the Education sector is highly significant. It carves the way ahead for global interaction and allows students to furnace interactive relationships when it comes to making an important decision for their lives. Despite the fact that English has a wider reach today, the impact of local culture and language remains intact. English still is a second language for most of the countries and hence cannot be used as a prime marketing language.
