For all those who have started to follow the blog since the beginning of the year, or anyone who might have missed a post, here is a summary of the most read posts of the year. I’ve grouped them into ‘families’ for ease of use.
Actually, though, there is a really wide spread over the posts, and, even more pleasing for me, people continue to call up old posts a long time after their publication. As a blogger, it is really satisfying to know that the posts are still useful and don’t fall into the “published and forgotten” basket!
The Syndicat national des traducteurs professionnels is organizing a webinar for those newly appointed to be a sworn translator and/or interpreter in France. The training session will be in French, so the rest of this post follows suit!
I just couldn’t resist inviting Tony Rosado onto the blog again (see below for more), with this fantastic post he has written about judges working with court interpreters. It’s also great advice for all those lawyers and judges reading who might not realize what they’re doing wrong! Tony blogs over at The Professional Interpreter in English and Spanish, and as well as being a qualified attorney, has been a freelance interpreter for almost 30 years. He runs Rosado Professional Solutions in Chicago.
As I imagine that at least some of you might be getting ready to rush off on holidays tomorrow, I thought would post my very best seasonal wishes today.
I’ve chosen this picture as I know that many of you live in places where it may not be cold – and maybe some of you are even off to warmer climes for a vacation!
Thank you all so much for following the blog, and have a wonderful relaxing time!
By the way, don’t forget that eating mince pies in the UK on Christmas Day is banned😉
We’re all about hounds & puppies this week, after the post including sponsoring a guide dog for the blind yesterday.
DocHound has been launched by the terminology unit at the Directorate-General Translation at the European Parliament, as a “one-stop-shop” link to useful document resources of all EU institutions gathered all at one single place.
Here is just a small selection of ideas, but apart from Kiva and UNVolunteers they are mainly UK- or US-based (also accessible from elsewhere).
Please do share your ideas from around the world too!
