Thanks UN Jun 1, 2017

Though I wonder why it took so long knowing the crucial contribution language professionals make to the United Nations...

One thing so obvious, I was wondering why people took so long time to acknowledge this value contribution.
We deserve that!icon_smile.gif

Yes, Jun 2, 2017

I hope it is not an International Machine Translation Day, though, or will not turn into one, with some other agendas.

Fantastic news Jun 5, 2017

What a huge step forward in our common quest to promote understanding and bring peoples together. I can scarcely imagine the transformative effects on the profession, my own working day and humanity in general - so exciting!!!!!

Today is World Environment Day. Yesterday was International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression. And now there's one especially for us. Finally the recognition we deserve. Where would the world be without us? #togetherstronger #onelove #oneworld
