Collins dictionary has chosen “permacrisis” as the word of the year 2022. The word is used to describe an extended period of instability and insecurity, esp one resulting from a series of catastrophic events.

Permacrisis tops a list of 10 words, six of them new entries in the dictionary, which represent 2022, Collins said.

“Language can be a mirror to what is going on in society and the wider world, and this year has thrown up challenge after challenge.

“It is understandable that people may feel, after living through upheaval caused by Brexit, the pandemic, severe weather, the war in Ukraine, political instability, the energy squeeze, and the cost-of-living crisis, that we are living in an ongoing state of uncertainty and worry.”

Collins Dictionary monitors its 18bn-word database and a range of media sources, including social media, to create an annual list of new and notable words. Source The Guardian

International Translation Day 2022

Translator's day
International Translation Day – September 30th
Buy Now Button

Purchase code ITD2022

International Translation Day is meant as an opportunity to pay tribute to the work of language professionals, which plays an important role in bringing nations together, facilitating dialogue, understanding, and cooperation, and contributing to developing and strengthening world peace and security.

Transposition of a literary or scientific work, including technical work, from one language into another language, professional translation, including translation proper, interpretation, and terminology, is indispensable to preserving clarity, a positive climate, and productiveness in international public discourse and interpersonal communication.

Thus, on 24 May 2017, the General Assembly adopted resolution 71/288 on the role of language professionals in connecting nations and fostering peace, understanding and development, and declared 30 September as International Translation Day.

Why 30 September?

30 September celebrates the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator, who is considered the patron saint of translators.

Hasta la vista, baby! and how to make your resignation stand out

Hasta la vista, baby
top sign-off phrase to include in your resignation letter

Leaving politics aside, I wanted to post about this “Hasta la vista, baby” event, which kept me thinking about how one phrase can make your departure memorable. Could this become a helpful phrase to turn down low-paying job offers? Would it be the perfect sign-off phrase to use when quitting a job? In any case, the well-known event inspired me to create one more cartoon. I hope you like it and have fun with it.

There is no fun side to war

Showing your disapproval of war
Stop the war

Feeling absolutely impotent and incredulous about what is happening around the world, I felt the need to post something showing my disapproval of the war and of any actions that are not in line with healing the world and taking steps to recover from the pandemic, and fighting climate change. The world is ailing as it is. A war today seems incomprehensible. I thought humanity had learned from history and yet here we are…

Top scariest horror movies

scariest horror movies for translators
A translator talks about the scariest horror movie in their life.

Continuing with the humourous cartoons about translators I felt the inspiration to create this cartoon playing a little with the most dreaded word a translator can hear —”deadline”.

Translators are an odd type that is most exposed when mingled with other “normal” people. No matter how hard they try to go with the flow, there is always a detail that will give them away. Do you agree?

Cards for English lovers – received pronunciation RP

Received pronunciation - RP - British accent
English lovers simply adore a posh accent

RP is probably the most widely studied and most frequently described variety of spoken English in the world, yet recent estimates suggest only 3% of the UK population speak it. (…) As well as being a living accent, RP is also a theoretical linguistic concept. It is the accent on which phonemic transcriptions in dictionaries are based, and it is widely used (in competition with General American) for teaching English as a foreign language. RP is included here as a useful reference, not to imply it has greater merit than any other English accent, but because it provides us with an extremely familiar model against which comparisons with other accents may be made.
