Yesterday, the ProZ.com community choice awards were announced. They will be held annually, and the idea is to offer another way to publicly recognize translation and interpretation professionals who are active, influential or otherwise outstanding in different media.
Nominations are open now, until May 31st. If you know a language professional who is deserving of recognition for their work on a blog or in other publications, in Twitter, as a trainer or speaker, or any of the other categories, be sure to put in your nominations here. And spread the word! Once nominations close, candidates for final voting will be compiled (based on number of nominations).
