New month, new editorial calendar, new series… Great times are coming indeed!
The time has come to disclose our new editorial calendar with the special feature of our brand new interview series: Greatest Women in Translation.
So here it is:
On the 1st of every month, we’ll have the brand new interview series, starting tomorrow. On the 10th of every month, we’ll keep having guests writing about diverse and interesting topics on translation (our next guest will be Tess Whitty, from the Marketing Tips for Translators podcast). And on the 20th, we’ll keep having our now monthly posts (previously weekly), written by yours truly, Carol. 😉
If any of those days falls on a holiday or on the weekend, I may anticipate for the previous day or postpone it for the next day.
Since the interview series is new, I’ll explain how it will work.
The idea is to feature women translators who are someone’s role model because they inspire and motivate us to reach higher and be better. Since this is a very personal opinion, my role model may not be yours, I’ll let the interviewees themselves choose the subsequent translator to be featured on the series. At the end of the day, we’ll have a group of professionals who are among the greatest women in translation. And I say “among” because the world is pretty large and it would be impossible to feature all the amazing translators who inspire and who are great role models out there.
That being said, tomorrow, the first interviewee will be someone who inspired me, since the beginning of my career, and who keeps being my inspiration. However, I won’t say another word, because it’s still a surprise.
The questions won’t be the same for every interviewee. I’ll try to make them as personal as possible, so we can have a customized interview. If you have any suggestions of questions or if there’s something you’d like to know about a translator, please let me know. I’m open to suggestions.
Last but not least, the hashtag of the series is #gr8testwomenxl8. So feel free to use it whenever you like.
“See” you tomorrow!
P.S.: June is the blog’s 2-year birthday. Stay tuned because there will be something to celebrate soon. 😉
