Today we start with a series of blog’s recommendations that we hope to post on a weekly basis!

Today is the turn of the Spanish blog 20000lenguas.com , its objective is to share content relevant to translation, interpreting, etymology, terminology, localization and language in general. We are happy to say that the author is Olga Jeczmyk, former trainee of the Terminology Coordination Unit of the European Parliament. She’s a Translator, Interpreter, Social Media Specialist, Communication and Marketing Manager. She is fluent in Polish, Catalan, Spanish, Italian, French and English.

We’ve been browsing through the posts to leave you with a selection of those we’ve found interesting. Would you like to take a look?
