• #ProZCCA: Community Choice Awards 2015 hosted by ProZ •

Good morning, followers! Happy Sunday! 🙂
It’s been a long time since my last post – I know, I’m sorry! But, I’m juggling a lot lately, and I’m working on some new exciting projects that I’m going to unveil in a couple of months. I’m still working on my website (One Sec Translations), which you can visit and surf; but, I want to personalise it a little bit more, so I’m taking care of the latest details.

Besides, I’m arranging my business and networking trips to Bordeaux and Pisa (in September and October, respectively), so I’m trying to be active on many, different sides so that I’ll be ready to leave without freaking out! 😀
I’ll write something for you about it in a specific post on the topic. 🙂

Yet, although I didn’t make it at the Language Lover Contest 2015 hosted by Bab.la, it doesn’t mean I don’t have to give it another try by taking the chance to participate in the Community Choice Awards 2015 hosted by ProZ.

COMMUNITY CHOICE AWARDS 2015

The ProZ website says:

The ProZ.com community choice awards are hosted by ProZ.com annually to provide another means for the ProZ.com community to publicly recognize language professionals who are active, influential or otherwise outstanding in various media throughout the industry. Nominations, voting, and winners are determined entirely by the ProZ.com community.
Here’s how it works: the contest has a simple structure of nominations, voting, and announcement of winners. Members of the ProZ.com community are asked to submit their nominations in various categories. Nominees who receive a certain number of nominations move to the voting stage. Winners are determined purely through numbers of votes cast by the ProZ.com community.
There are two main categories: Translation-related and Interpretation-related. Within these categories are various sub-categories such as “best blog”, “best website”, “best trainer”, “best conference speaker”, etc.

Nominations are still being accepted. You can submit your nominations through August 18th following this web address >>> http://www.proz.com/community-choice-awards/nominations

If you like to spread the word on Twitter or other social media, you can use the hashtag #ProZCCA

You can also provide nominations for the other subcategories and nominate interpretation-related users.

You can fill in the blanks by writing as many names as you like; just choose the related category or subcategory and nominate your favourite people. Filling in all the spaces is not compulsory, so if you don’t have any nominees, just leave a blank space.

Thanks in advance for your support! 🙂
And have a look around, because many translators/interpreters/linguists are willing to take part in the competition!

Good luck, everyone!

Annunci

Chiuso per ferie • Gone on holiday/vacation • Estoy de vacaciones

Perfino il traduttore stacanovista ha bisogno di una piccola vacanza di tanto in tanto. Deve rimettere in ordine la confusione degli ultimi incarichi e riprendersi dopo aver ordinato tutti i file e catalogato le basi terminologiche ed i glossari. È tutto pronto! Fatture ed email inviate e telefonate agli ultimi clienti distratti fatte.

Anche il corpo ha bisogno del suo riposo, perciò questo è il momento di distendere la mente e lasciare che ogni muscolo si goda il meritato relax. 

Io sarò in viaggio per qualche giorno. Pubblicherò qualche foto e cercherò di utilizzare i social media per condividere qualche ricordo. 😉 Potete seguirmi su twitter o su facebook!

Nel frattempo auguro buon lavoro a chi sarà impegnato anche nelle prossime settimane e buone ferie a chi le farà in questi giorni come me o ne sta già godendo i benefici. 🙂

A presto.

 

~Chiara

HELLO AUGUST! Welcome back!
HELLO AUGUST! Welcome back!

Today is 1st August. A brand new month has started today, so I have 31 days to plan, create, change something (or everything) in my life.

I’m still working on my brand and the services I want to share with all the people who follow me on social media and through the Internet. These people are *YOU*.

I want to thank you all for being there. You have the power to make a normal day be awesome. You give me the energy to pursue this amazing career I chose for myself. Freelancing is hard work, but I’m putting all my efforts into studying and practicing. I hope to succeed as a freelance translator.

I’m surrounded by the most fabulous professionals in the world. I hope I won’t disappoint you. 🙂

I’m going to keep going. I’ll do my best, I promise.
