Here we are, back with our weekly posts, after a two-week vacation. A lot happened during this period: my interview for Lingo.io was published, I reached 400 followers on Twitter, The Bright Side of Freelance Translation e-book (in which I took a small part, on page 52) was released and I got nominated for the Top 100 Language Lovers 2014 competition in the following categories: professional blog, Twitter and Facebook! Talk about great news!
This is the first year I participate, and being already nominated is quite something! Even if I don’t get enough votes and/or don’t get picked, I’m already blissfully happy! And, of course, I owe it all to you, my dear followers and fans, who always support me. THANK YOU! And here’s a brigadeiro (typical Brazilian sweet) for each one of you, as a thank-you gift:
Now, I need your help to vote:
If you like my blog, vote here: bit.ly/1qZcWpO (Carol’s Adventures in Translation)
If you like my Facebook page, vote here: bit.ly/1hygJks (Alberoni Translations)
If you like following me on Twitter, vote here: bit.ly/1qUzmsg (AlberoniTranslations)
Although you can vote only once for each person in each category, you can vote for more than one person in each category. So have a look at all the other amazing blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts and YouTube channels that were nominated and vote for all of those you like.
Votings end on Monday, June 9th.
Another good news is that you can already apply for the XXXIII Semana do Tradutor da Unesp de São José do Rio Preto, SP, Brazil. The Translator’s Week is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) and most traditional translation events held in Brazil. I have already participated as a student and now I’m proud to say I was invited to present a workshop on social media, branding and marketing (on Wednesday, September 24th, 2pm).
Where: Unesp (Universidade Estadual Paulista), São José do Rio Preto, SP, Brazil
When: September 22nd to 26th, 2014
Price: R$ 100.00 until July 31st
Come and watch my presentation, besides many other interesting presenters, like Yves A. Champollion (CEO, Wordfast LLC), Dilma Machado and my colleague Paula Ianelli G. Luiz, who has already written as a guest here on our blog. If you do, please come forward and present yourself so we can meet in person and maybe have a coffee. 😉
