Around the web – June 2015

This month in an effort to improve my activity level I acquired a small smart watch, and despite doing an hour of sport per day I found I’m still quite far from the recommended 10,000 steps per day. I also signed up for the million miles challenge, whose aim is to get as many translators and interpreters as possible to move!

So in keeping with this flurry of activity let’s kick off June’s round-up of articles about language and translation with this post by colleague Nikki Graham:
