On 30th September 2018, Language Services Bureau celebrated its 40 years of operations in the language industry. The celebrations took place in the form of an event on the account of ‘International Translation Day’. Several veteran translators and experts in languages stepped away from their desk and joined our founder, Mrs. Madhuri Datar in reveling in the wonderful journey that is Language Services Bureau.


The event revolved around the theme, ‘Translation - Then and Now’ where the translators shared with us their opinions and experiences about the processes of translation in the form of a panel discussion.
