It’s that time of the year again: Lexiophiles has just published the shortlists for this year’s edition of its Top Language Lovers competition. If you’ve never heard of it, let me just say that the idea behind the Language Lovers competition is to identify the best social media content covering language-related topics. There are four categories: Language Learning Blogs, Language Professional Blogs, Language Facebook Pages, and Language Twitter Accounts. The top 25 in each category are recognized in an annual ranking, and an overall list of the Top 100 Language Lovers is published as well.
I’m proud to report that the Interpreter Diaries has been nominated in the category of Top Language Professional Blog for the second year running. If you want to show your support for the outreach work I do here on this blog, you can go over and vote at this link or by clicking on the voting button at the top of the page.
The Interpreter Diaries Facebook page has also been shortlisted in the Facebook category, but there are many pages on that list that are light years ahead of mine, so I certainly won’t be twisting anyone’s arm to go over and vote for me there! 😉
On the Twitter list, I’m happy to see that @aiiconline has been shortlisted. This is the Twitter account that I help run for my professional association, AIIC. It would be an honour if @aiiconline could repeat or even better its ranking of 12th overall that it was awarded in 2012.
Generally speaking, I must say it’s nice to see so many familiar “faces” over on the lists. Here’s hoping that interpreters make as strong a showing in the final results as they did last year! The voting period closes on June 9th, so you’ll want to head over, check out the lists, and cast your vote soon.

Hi, Michelle. Congratulations on being shortlisted. Very well-deserved. You got one of my three votes. I see a winner. Good luck.
Thank you very much, Ewandro! I’m halfway through your book, by the way – work keeps getting in the way, but if I don’t finish it by the summer, I am going to take it with me on holiday to Portugal! 🙂
