My Weekly Top 5 (Part I)

This section is inspired on Catherine Christaki’s “Weekly favorites” of  Adventures in Freelance Translation. There has been so much information to share, but we often lose track of valuable articles and tweets that  may eventually be useful for further consultation. Also, considering the fact that I tend to get lost for months without posting anything, I didn’t want to end up like those blogs that just fade away, without notice, leaving ghostly footprints. I was thinking: “so, why have a blog if not collaborating with something productive?” So, here I am, sharing new contributions with you all :).

For those who haven’t visited Cath’s blog yet, let me tell you that her weekly series are very complete, informative, and condensed in a single weekly blog post.

In my case, I will only post 5 blog posts, 5 articles, 5 tweets, and 5 news (if any) related to translation, interpreting, language issues, culture, and/or marketing in a weekly basis.

So, shall we start? 🙂
