Today appeared an article at The Economist Online. It does not deal directly with translations, but I consider it is important to share, because facts shown there could affect sooner or later our very source of work: the internet, be it as a search tool or as a means for getting in touch with clients and colleagues.

Here it is: How the threats to the internet’s openness can be averted
