IMHO it is wrong, plain dumb, and ridiculous for anyone in the language industry to boycott or ‘ban using the services’ of another provider based on gender, ethnicity, race, country of origin, religion, language, sexual orientation, physical capability and any of the other many diversity categories. What’s brought about this politically motivated statement? Apparently some … Continue reading

Reputation ranking of Top 100 Russian LSPs now available in English

Following on from my post about the launch of the Reputation ranking of Top 100 Russian LSPs in December 2011 (#100buro). I’m please to announce it is now available in English. The ranking has been criticised by some (especially as it differs from financial measures). However the method is published on the site, and I hope, for one, that the Ranking will continue to be published, improve over time, and become an increasingly … Continue reading

This ranking (#100buro), the first of its … Continue reading

Autumn Tour: No sleep till Kalafat!

2 continents, 9 countries, 20 cities, a good number of rivers and unfortunately 9 currencies! Avid readers of this blog (surely there are some?

This entry combines (and links to) all … Continue reading
