A translator is a cultural ambassador who connects people from different cultural and lingual background. Translation has held paramount importance in human society since time immemorial, and still it does. It does not only help improve economic condition, but also it helps explore new ideas and concept related to different spheres of human life. These views were expressed by Maulana Mohammad Burhanuddin Qasmi in the valedictory session of the workshop.
