Intro: The ATISDA Blog is a group effort and would not be possible without the ongoing contributions from various members. This week we pass the baton to our group’s VP, Yolanda Secos. In her guest blog, Yolanda compiles a list of English-language resources that translators and interpreters alike will find useful, if not essential.
Facebook Pages & Twitter Accounts: English Grammar Edition
By Yolanda Secos
I was asked to contribute a list of Facebook pages and Twitter accounts for the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of the quarterly newsletter of the Spanish Language Division of the American Translators Association Intercambios. You can read it here (pg. 5).
When I compiled that list I had in mind those colleagues who have Spanish as one of their working languages. I really wanted to create a similar one for the ATISDA blog, but I was not sure how to make it relevant to our ATISDA members since we are very fortunate to have professionals working in many different languages. After attending the “Advanced English Workshop” presented by Daire Coco on June 27th, I thought that we could all benefit from a list of resources about the English language which can be found on Facebook and Twitter. If you already like the ATISDA Facebook page and belong to the “Atisda Discussion Group,” you might like the following Facebook pages & Twitter accounts:
