Look who’s talking about the ProZ.com community choice awards 4

Just a few days remain in the voting phase for this year’s installment of the ProZ.com community choice awards. Cast your ballots and help pick this year’s winners before voting ends on September 22nd here: http://www.proz.com/community-choice-awards/nominations. Nominees and winners are determined entirely by the ProZ.com community.

Now, as the purpose of the ProZ.com community choice awards is to celebrate those who are active and influential in different media throughout the industry, I thought it would be fitting to share some of the social media responses to these awards here.

Here’s a sample of what people have been saying about this year’s awards:

CCA1

Carol’s Adventures in Translation – a blog by Caroline Alberoni of Alberoni Translations – is in the running for “Best blog” among the translation-related finalists for this year’s awards. Congratulations and best of luck, Caroline!

CCA2

Laura Hargreaves has done a fantastic job of covering this year’s ProZ.com community choice awards both on her blog – LanguagesByLaura.com – as well as via Twitter @LanguagebyLaura. Thanks for the support, Laura!

CCA5

Translators Anonymous – an anonymous (and hilarious) translation blog – were the original winners of the “Best blog” community choice award. I had a lot of fun interviewing them on that win here: The ProZ.com community choice awards: Translators Anonymous. They are in the running this year as well for best blog, Facebook page/group, and the “other social media” category. Good luck, admins!

CCA4

The awards have been mentioned on a variety of different social media platforms, including this Pinterest pin by Chiara Bartolozzi of One Sec Translations. She also wrote a post about the event in her blog here: #ProZCCA: Community Choice Awards 2015 hosted by ProZ.com. Chiara is a nominee in a few different categories including best Twitter, blog post, and “other social media”. Thanks for the mentions and best of luck, Chiara!

CCA6

Erik Hansson – owner of the Things Translators Never Say Facebook group – has promoted the awards, as well as his group’s nomination in the best Facebook group/page category, throughout social media. Be sure to check Erik out via Twitter @erik_hansson. Good luck, Erik and the Things Translators Never Say group!

CCA7

Pieter Beens has been nominated in two award categories this year, including best article and best blog post. You can see both of these nominated posts on Pieter’s website, Vertaalt.nu. Congrats and good luck, Pieter!

  1. Patenttranslator’s Blog wasn’t among the nominees that passed onto the finalist stage of the community choice awards this year, but I would encourage you to nominate this blog as part of next year’s awards so it can have the chance to win. You can see the full list of nominees at: http://www.proz.com/community-choice-awards. Thanks for contributing, Radek!
