Three Technical Manuals for Translators

Three books I highly recommend to translators interested in improving their technical skills: Software for translators, in general The Translator's Tool Box: A Computer Primer for Translators, Version 12 by Jost Zetsche. A wide ranging introduction to a number of different software programs used by translators, written by a veritable guru of translation tools. memoQ New beginnings with MemoQ by Kevin Lossner and Cátea Caleço Murta. A good and thorough tutorial on memoQ, written by a real expert on the program. SDL Trados Studio SDL Trados Studio 2015 - The Manual by Mats Linder. Mats has been writing an independent manual for Studio since version 2011 of the program. An absolute must for all users of the Studio.

Come fare SEO su Pinterest

Come fare SEO su Pinterest | language and technology | Scoop.it
“ Tre anni fa, sembrava essere l'anno di Pinterest. Lo stesso Rand Fishkin di Moz inserì l'emergente social network fra le sue previsioni SEO del 2012 e in effetti, stando agli ultimi dati di Shareaholic, ci azzeccò: Pinterest figura infatti al secondo posto nei Social Media Traffic Referral, superato solo da Facebook. Pew Research Center ha pubblicato a inizio 2015 le Demographics of Key Social Networking Platforms, nelle quali si nota che (negli USA) il 28% degli utenti adulti su Internet (ovvero il 22% dell'intera popolazione adulta) utilizza Pinterest. Gli uomini, che nel 2013 erano solo l'8%, sono oggi il 13%. Le donne, dal 33%, sono passate al 42%. In Italia, nel nostro piccolo, si parla comunque di circa 3 milioni di utilizzatori della piattaforma al mese. Siamo insomma davanti ad un social che non possiamo più ignorare. I Consigli SEO di Pinterest Durante l'ultimo SMX East di New York, Anna Majkowska - software manager del Pinterest search team - ha dato vari suggerimenti utili”

Thousands declare 'Je Suis Chien' and 'Je Suis Diesel' after dog killed in Paris raid - BBC News

Thousands declare 'Je Suis Chien' and 'Je Suis Diesel' after dog killed in Paris raid - BBC News | language and technology | Scoop.it
Image copyrightM@NU/TWITTER
Image caption
Many shared pictures of their own dogs to express sympathy
The death of police dog Diesel in a police raid in the Paris suburbs on Wednesday has inspired a Facebook page and a hashtag. But the tag's creator says he started it "to be a little bit funny".
Police targeted the flat in Saint-Denis in a search for the alleged mastermind of Friday's gun and bomb attacks in Paris, when 129 people were killed. During the raid, a woman blew herself up and a suspect was shot dead. Seven arrests were made and five officers were injured.
The French National Police's announcement that police dog Diesel, a 7-year-old Belgian Shepherd, was killed "by terrorists," sparked a big reaction online - retweeted 15,000 times.
It inspired a hashtag, "Je Suis Chien," (literal translation: I am dog) which borrows the language of the "Je Suis Charlie" solidarity hashtag. The "Je Suis Chien" tag has been used almost 130,000 times, with many people sharing messages of grief for Diesel in French and later in English. "Forever thankful to these creatures," wrote one user.
Later a new slogan, "Je Suis Diesel," was adopted. "Je Suis Chien should be Je Suis Diesel. He had a name! rest in peace, friend", said one Twitter user.
A "Je Suis Diesel" Facebook page has also been setup, which has garnered over 11,000 likes, where users grieved over the death of the police dog. Many have been uploading photos of their own pets.

Caption reads: 'My name is Jenkins, I am a Belgian Shepherd, but today I am Diesel'
Others using the "Je Suis Chien" tag made sarcastic comments about the death of a dog becoming a viral trend, and created memes - for example showing the hackers group Anonymous, which has vowed to disrupt so-called Islamic State social media activity, vowing vengeance for Diesel's killing.

This tweet borrowed the imagery of 'Anonymous,' the hackers group who have threatened to disrupt Islamic State on social media after the Paris attacks
BBC Trending found the user who seems to have first tweeted the hashtag. He told us his name was Ashley, that he is 24 and lives near Paris. "I wanted it to be a little bit funny because all the websites were about it," he says, referring to the prominence given to Diesel's death. "But many are using it seriously."

He told us he created the slogan to mock the proliferation of "Je Suis..." hashtags. "Every trouble has a hashtag like #JeSuis," he said. "If an old guy has something wrong, it will be #JeSuisOldGuy".
But he does not believe the response to Diesel's death has been disproportionate. "The dog is the human's best friend," he said. "It was an innocent," he added. "So a lot of people were disgusted by this".
