Spanish-Language Word of the Day

There's nothing quite like learning something new -- and as translators and interpreters, we do need to learn new things, specifically new words, on a regular basis to expand our vocabulary. We've long been addicted to "La palabra del día" (word of the day), and we know many fellow Spanish translators who also love this daily dose of wisdom.

It's a free e-mail sent by La Página del Idioma Español. The site was founded by Uruguayan journalist and Spanish-language expert Ricardo Soca. The e-mail presents one highly useful word a day and gives you a lot of interesting historical and etymological background on the term. It's a quick, fascinating read, and it makes us feel a bit smarter every day.

Hello!

I am from Spain and I am suscribed to "la recomendación del día" by La Fundeu (www.fundeu.es click on "suscribirse a recomendaciones"). Even if I am a native speaker, I find their recommendations extremely useful!

Best,

Cris

I love the name of your business - Twin Translations. I don't think I have ever come across twins who run there own business except for the Winklevoss brothers.

Inspiring stuff!

@Nick: thanks -- glad you like the name! We actually met another pair of twins from Austria who are finishing their translation degrees and guess what they named their business? :)
