International Mother Language Day is an observance held annually on 21 February worldwide to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism. Here is an example of the bilingual announcements in the Helsinki Metro. The train is arriving at Itäkeskus (Östra centrum) metro station. The announcement is read in Finnish and Swedish and says "Itäkeskus – Junat Vuosaareen lähtevät raiteelta yksi. Östra Centrum – Tågen till Nordsjö avgår från spår ett.", which translates: "Itäkeskus – The trains for Vuosaari depart from track one.".

This is the English translation of the Media of the day description page from .
