Translation Times Turns One

This week marks this blog's first year of life on the blogosphere, and we have been delighted with our blogging experience. We were inspired to add a translation blog to our list of blogs by many of our fantastic colleagues who have blogged about translation for years. Here are some of this year's highlights:
  • 125 posts
  • Average of 7 -9 blog posts per month
  • Hundreds of comments and interesting discussions
  • Appreciative feedback from readers we informed of an interpretation company that has not paid many contractors, as reported to us by affected parties
  • Our most popular blog entries, by number of comments, were the above-mentioned non-payment alerts, including this one here and the accused's response here.
  • Many good ideas and suggestions from our readers, which inspired new blog posts, including one on languages in literature.
Thanks for reading, everyone! We are appreciative of your input and feedback and look forward to continue strengthening our translation community by writing about relevant things for linguists. We will continue bringing you popular posts about marketing tips, advertising strategies, cost-saving tips, information on professional development, and much more. We'd love to hear from you as well - let us know if you'd like us to address a particular issue. Here's to a great second year! Note: the above picture was taken by our good friend and volunteer photographer, Ulf Buchholz, in front of a run-down building in east Las Vegas, signaling the end of the building boom in Nevada. No end of the blogging boom in sight, though!

Well, happy birthday blog, and may the years to come bring us more high-quality posts on the many aspects of language/culture exchange. Well done!

@everyone: thanks so much for the good wishes. We promise to keep on blogging and keeping you posted on (hopefully) interesting things.

@Lisa Davey: great to meeet you in Berlin, too! No worries about the boat tour that you couldn't get a ticket to. It was OK, but you didn't miss too much -- they ran out of food (cardinal sin of any event!).

Join the conversation! Commenting is a great way to become part of the translation and interpretation community. Your comments don’t have to be overly academic to get published. We usually publish all comments that aren't spam, self-promotional or offensive to others. Agreeing or not agreeing with the issue at hand and stating why is a good way to start. Social media is all about interaction, so don’t limit yourself to reading and start commenting! We very much look forward to your comments and insight. Let's learn from each other and continue these important conversations.
