de versus code As part of a bigger project I’m hoping to get stuck into later in the year, I updated my tabular comparison of different interpreting Codes of Conduct/Ethics from the fields of both conference and public service interpreting in both spoken and signed languages. First, updates: I added in the 2011 version of NRPSI’s code – nothing very exciting, mostly just housekeeping after the separation from CIOL and a new directive to actually respond to the complaints process. ITI also has a new 2013 version, which lost nothing from before but added several new things: they are now the only organisation to explicitly forbid price fixing, bribery and poaching work from other members.
How to write great blog comments Are you a commenting superhero? Originally posted on The Viral Garden One of the best ways to grow your blog, is to leave it. What I mean by this is leaving comments on other blogs is a great way to create value for others, and ultimately grow awareness for your own blogging efforts. But not all blog comments are created equal, and here’s some of the tips I’ve learned over the years for writing great blog comments: 20 Common Grammar Mistakes I’ve edited a monthly magazine for more than six years, and it’s a job that’s come with more frustration than reward.

Cassin, B., Apter, E., Lezra, J., et al., eds.: Dictionary of Untranslatables: A Philosophical Lexicon. (eBook and Hardcover) This is an encyclopedic dictionary of close to 400 important philosophical, literary, and political terms and concepts that defy easy--or any--translation from one language and culture to another. Drawn from more than a dozen languages, terms such as Dasein (German), pravda (Russian), saudade (Portuguese), and stato (Italian) are thoroughly examined in all their cross-linguistic and cross-cultural complexities. Spanning the classical, medieval, early modern, modern, and contemporary periods, these are terms that influence thinking across the humanities. The entries, written by more than 150 distinguished scholars, describe the origins and meanings of each term, the history and context of its usage, its translations into other languages, and its use in notable texts. The dictionary also includes essays on the special characteristics of particular languages--English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
