International Translator's Day is coming soon!

I am so excited about the International Translator's Day! I love my profession, learning new things related to my spheres of expertise, to the technical and marketing side of freelance translation and acquiring new skills, too!
This year ProZ.com has prepared something absolutely special and unique - a whole week of interesting and useful events. You can visit the 2011 Virtual event series page for details and register for events that you are interested in.
The program includes:

    I have registered for the Certified Pro Network virtual conference, Recruitment day and Freelance translator virtual conference. I'd really like to register also for the TAUS & ProZ.com event, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to attend since it's also my wedding anniversary :)


    How about you? What events are you planning to take part in?

    1. Sounds great! I'm not sure, though, if I am able to attend anything at all. Still, I'll try to attend the event on September 30.

    2. I'd be so glad to "see" you there on September 30th. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to attend all the sessions from the beginning till the end. Right now I am planning to spend about 1.5 hours a day. I am really excited about this whole coming week.

    4. Танечка, пройди по ссылкам и просмотри детальную программу каждого дня. Тогда ты сможешь решить для себя, что тебе нужно посетить, и соответствующим образом спланировать время. Если ты член ProZ.com, участие бесплатно. Если нет, то это стоит определенную сумму, но небольшую, насколько я знаю.

    15 interesting facts about the English language

    I prepared this list for one of my English classes. And then it dawned on me that I can share it with you, too! So here are 15 facts about the English language that I find very interesting. Hope you do, too ;) Rudyard Kipling was fired as a reporter for the San Francisco Examiner. His dismissal letter said, "I'm sorry, Mr. Kipling, but you just don't know how to use the English language. This isn't a kindergarten for amateur writers." No language has more synonyms than English.

    10 interesting facts about the Russian language

    In my previous post  I promised to follow with the  interesting info about some other languages. So here are 10 facts about the Russian language which might be of interest to those who are studying it. If you would like to have this list in Russian, please contact me and I will send it to you by email. So, what do I find interesting about my native language? 1. Russian has about 500,000 words, but only 2,000-2,500 of them are used frequently. 100 most frequently used words make 20% of all written and oral speech. A high school graduate's vocabulary usually has 1,500 to 4,000 words. Those who have graduated from a higher educational institution normally have a richer vocabulary consisting of approximately  8,000 words. 2. It's compulsory for all astronauts in the international space station to learn Russian, so we can call it an international language of space :)

    Translation Forum Russia 2017: my report

    A few days ago I came back from Translation Forum Russia which took place in Ufa, Bashkortostan . My daughter Delia went with me because she never visited Ufa before (neither have I) and because of the trip to the Southern Ural mountains we planned to take after the conference with a small group of colleagues. Ufa is not considered one of the primary tourist attractions of Russia, though I am convinced now that it definitely should be. Some pictures of the city (not all of the pictures are mine, some were made by the official photographer of the conference Elena Ekaterininskaya, our company CEO Fedor Kondratovich and some other colleagues): The bee is a symbol of the region as Bashkortostan produces the best honey in Russia. We saw installations shown below in different parts of the city. There were still covered because of the cold weather, but they will be full of blooming flowers as soon as the warm weather comes. The bee as we saw it That's what it
