Top 100 Language Lovers 2011 - voting open
I'm excited to say that MATSnews was longlisted again this year in the Language Professionals category for the Top 100 Language Blogs, now rechristened the Top 100 Language Lovers. The competition is divided into four categories: Language Learning Blogs, Language Professionals Blogs, Language Facebook Pages, Language Twitterers. If you enjoy reading the blog, do consider voting for us here - and whether or not you vote, do take a look at the list of fantastic translation blogs on offer.
It's been really evident over the last year or two how important translators' blogs as well as Twitter and Facebook have become in building up an online community - probably more important than translation researchers' blogs, though that will come too. Four blogs that are on my Google Homepage: Corinne McKay's Thoughts on Translation; Judy and Dagmar Jenner's Translation Times; Sarah Dillon's There's Something About Translation; Jill Sommer's Musings From an Overworked Translator.
Not to forget Mox's brilliant cartoons that always make me smile...
I'd be interested to hear from our readers whose blogs and Twitter feeds they follow.
