“The Galapagos of translation blogs”

I was both touched and flattered by colleague Luke Spear‘s glowing recommendation of this blog in the latest issue of The Linguist, the professional journal of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Linguists. Here’s what he had to say:
As channels for online publishing proliferate, certain blogs continue to offer the depth and breadth professionals seek. Over the years, one person has regularly offers up general interest and industry posts. Through an award-winning blog and social media combination, Catharine Cellier-Smart authors a valuable and continually updated resource for language lovers and professionals alike.
Published from the remote Reunion Island, some distance off the east coast of Africa, this blog is a reliable broadcast service to the rest of the world. It is the Galapagos of translation blogs, having evolved uniquely and likely out of necessity. It is not unimaginable to think that we might all feel a little remote at times regardless of where we live. A Smart Translator’s Reunion stands as an example to us all, should we wish to introduce new clients to businesses through a common interest. As a curation of language-related topics, you are in very safe hands with Catharine’s blog.
