Weekly Top 5 (Part III) – 03/09/2014 – 03/15/2014

Dear followers,

Thank you so much for all support you’ve been providing me all these days! I know you loved last week’s articles and I’ll do my best to be constant and accurate. This week was quite stressful, but it wasn’t an obstacle for me. As you can see, I made a slight change: include twitting and publication dates.  I don’t know if you’ll like this week’s content, but I had certain mishaps going on. So I did my best to collect everything in a cool and timely manner.

To start with, I’m glad someone requested Goodreads to name the translators of every translated book they had in the system, not only authors, co-authors, and/or editors. Oh, and the best: now there exist the hashtag #namethetranslator! Isn’t it cool? And, besides, that hashtag is on the way of being translated into several languages, including Arabic. It’s time to recognize the efforts and dedication of all unnamed book/literary translators! What else? Well, you would see several marketing tips and ideas, as well as a few news related to translation, interpreting, and intercultural differences.

So, shall we start?
