Giveaway and other announcements


  • Translation Day Sweepstake

September is the translators’ month (September 30 is the International Translation Day), so let’s celebrate it with a giveaway!

Want a chance to win a copy of the book 101 Things a Translator Needs to Know?

It’s simple. First of all, access this link. As you can see, it’s a Facebook sweepstake app. If you already like our Facebook page, all you need to do is click on Quero participar (the app is in Brazilian Portuguese). You will be redirected to allow the app (you can delete it afterwards). If you haven’t liked our Facebook fan page yet, you’ll be required to do so before being able to participate on the giveaway. The following message will appear: Para participar da promoção, você precisa “Curtir” esta página (To participate on this promotion, you need to “Like” this page). When you’re done, the following message appears: Agora você tem um cupom para esta promoção! (Now you have a coupon for this promotion!).

The winner will be chosen on September 30.

Good luck!

Please help share.


  • 2014 Community Choice Awards has announced the nominees of this year’s Community Choice Awards, and I’m among them!

Voting phase is already underway and ends on September 22. There are two main categories: translation-related and interpretation-related. I have been nominated in the translation-related main category as:

Blog: Best overall blog, based on activity and content from January 2013 to date – Carol’s Adventures in Translation;
Website: Best overall professional website – Alberoni Translations;
Twitter account: Best overall “Tweeter”, based on activity from January 2013 to date – AlberoniTranslations (@AlberoniTrans);
Facebook page: Best overall Facebook page or group, based on activity and content from January 2013 to date – Alberoni Translations;
Blog post: For a single blog post, as opposed to the “Blog” category, which is based on a blog as a whole. This category may include guest blog posts – 22 dicas importantes sobre alguns erros comuns em português; profile: Most professional/attractive profile – Caroline Alberoni.

You can vote for one nominee in each category. As I haven’t been nominated to all of them, you can vote for other people or leave them blank, if you wish. You can also vote for the interpretation-related main category. There are great people who were also nominated, so it’s worth having a look at all of them. 😉
