Social media has impacted my life in several positive ways. Primarily, it allows me to connect with those in the translation world in ways that were not otherwise possible before the birth of Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin. It not only allows me to keep up with my own industry, but it allows me to see what topics are important to the people that work in the language services industry, as well as what the hot button issues are.
This post is going to be short, we are busy in the best kind of way. However, I wanted to thank some of the people that inspire me every day, namely the Twitter kings and queens of the language services industry, who I count on to keep me updated. They are there day after day, they never stop, and, when I only have a few seconds to catch something, I go right to their feeds. My top favorite is, by far, @linguagreca. Other favorites are @wordyrama, @atgtranslation, @acgtranslation, and @ergeekgoddess. Of course, there are many more and some that are picking up my attention but these top 5 seem to never miss a beat!
This is my shout-out to you wonderful women! Keep up the good work because your sphere of influence is farther than you can imagine!!
