Hello everybody,

Last month, I went to the Translation and Localization Conference in Warsaw. I hold a workshop about SEO there. It was a lot of fun. I love everything related to the internet, digital knowledge and search engine optimization.

Since the workshop, I have posted 6 videos (youtube) about different SEO topics related to our work as linguists (translators and copywriters).

I would be very happy to hear your thoughts on this subject.
Is it something that your clients already asked you about? Is there some topics that you'd want to know more about?

Here is the website:
and here the youtube channel:

Feedback is appreciated

Looking forward to hear from you,

Are you sure you picked the correct medium? Apr 9, 2016

Different people have different dominant modalities of perception, but there is a certain correlation between one's profession and one's dominant modality. Personally, I find watching video utterly counterproductive when I can read a printed text instead, and I strongly suspect that quite a few translators think the same - after all, text is what we eat for breakfast.
Another problem is that linguists are especially sensitive to errors in the language, and sorry, your English sounds too non-native to be comfortable, which wouldn't have happened in a printed text.

Hello Anton,

Thank you for your feedback.
Well, you are right, text is what we eat for breakfast! This is why every time I publish a video, I also write a blog post. While the video is intended to be a short introduction to a specific topic, the text goes more in depth.

This is for the one who prefer reading than watching, want more information or might be bothered by my frenchy accent

Wishing you a lovely sunday,
