Versatile Blogger: Awards

Last week I was awarded the Award of the Versatile Blogger from two outstanding translators, Catherine Christaki (@linguagreca) and Ewa Erdmann (@transliteria). Catherine is one of the authors of Adventures in Freelance Translation and Ewa writes in Transliteria. Articles written by these two ladies are very interesting and provide advice for any new and experienced translator. I am honored to have been nominated by these extraordinary professionals!

And so, true to form, here we go!

  1. Thank you for the nomination Konstantina! I did not know you had lived in Stockholm, my favorite city in the world (biased of course). My 7 things have already been published on my blog. It is nice to get to know you better.

    1. Tess,

      You are very welcome! Yes, I did! I had never seen so much snow and ice (being a Greek an’ all!). An once-in-a-lifetime experience! Stockholm: a true Lady of the North!

  2. Hi Konstantina,

    Many thanks for the nomination, I am glad you like my blog:) I have been busy recently (more than usual) hence I noticed the nomination rather late, for which I am sorry:) It is nice to get to know a bit more about you through your ‘7 things about me’ and through reading your excellent blog:)

    ‘See’ you on Twitter:)

    1. Hello Aga!

      You are welcome! Not to worry, there are periods in our lives that 24hours are not enough! Thank you for your kind words about my blog!

      Yes, I will ‘see’ you there!
