How are you doing? I have been silent for a little while, I know. I gave you some hints about my future projects, but I have not revealed anything yet. I know, I know… I owe you all an apology.
I planned to spend the month of August organising the last part of this “sabbatical” year and it looks like I’m going to live many exciting adventures over the next few weeks.
First of all, thank you so much for your precious support! With your help I have been nominated in various translation-related categories for the Community Choice Awards hosted by ProZ.
Website >> One Sec Translations (www.onesec-translations.com)
Twitter >> Chiara Bartolozzi (@OneSec_ts)
Blog Post >> “Guest Post: Connecting with people” on Caroline Alberoni Translations Blog (http://caroltranslation.com/…/guest-post-connecting-with-p…/)

Now, you can vote for your favourite one(s), so if you want to vote yours truly, follow this link >> http://www.proz.com/community-choice-awards and choose the related items.
The voting phase will be open until 22nd September. Then, discover the winners on International Translation Day (30th Sept)!
Secondly, as I told you in my previous post, I am leaving today to reach the wonderful city of Bordeaux. I will attend the 3rd IAPTI Conference and I am pretty excited about that, because it is my very first time as a participant in an International event.
I will share a gorgeous flat with other colleagues and I am sure that we will have a lot of fun, as it will be both a sort of holiday and working time for everyone of us.
The roommates will be:

Follow our real-time updates on facebook, twitter, and Instagram (I am sure we’ll share posts, tweets, and pictures). (I provided you with all our details so that you can find us online.)
Thirdly, I am going to launch a section on my website that it will be called The Honest Translator, which is intended to be a box encompassing my posts, guest posts, thoughts and anything else on being a freelancer (focusing mainly on being a translator) in the most honest way possible. I would like to create a space where people can talk their true selves without wearing any mask, discussing their added values and real expectations (basing them on what they really feel and want).
Yet, last but not least, I’m going to submit a questionnaire to a bunch of professionals that I would like to have as my guests for a new interview series that I will publish on my website. It will be a little bit different from those you usually read on other blogs, because I thought it as a fresh way to have a break. I hope that I could show you something as soon as possible. We’ll see. Maybe you could be one of those amazing colleagues I would like to feature on my blog. Stay tuned and you could discover it!
Well, I hope that you have enjoyed the reading. Feel free to comment or drop me a line about anything.
I’ve got to go, but…
See you soon!
