What's In A Name? Behind the Blog's Name Spread the Word

Spread The Word: The official blog for elingual.net

Around the time I started eLingual.Net, I began this blog and when prompted to name the blog I went blank, so I did the easiest thing to do, I named it the elingual.net's blog.

Very unoriginal, I know.

But as time went on I realized that my goal for the blog went far beyond the name, it has purpose, values, and heart.

The goal of the blog is to spread the word and awareness about the valuable role professional translators and interpreters play in our daily lives.

Then,  I renamed the blog to Spread The Word, although I kept the URL the same, because spreadtheword.blogspot is already taken.

Why "Spread The Word"?

The phrase "spread the word" embodies the blog's purpose, goals, values, and heart.  

It calls to action!  

Without translators or interpreters our life would be limited to the borders of our own country. | www.elingual.net

As a profession, translators and interpreters are paid to spread the written and spoken work in a variety of languages.

For translators and interpreters alike, language is our passion, our purpose, our heart, and our livelihood.

The mission of this blog is to create respect, appreciation, and awareness for this ancient craft.

The loss of even one language means the loss of a people, culture, tradition, history, and a unique way of understanding life and seeing the world." -Unknown | www.elingual.net

Translation and interpretation is part of our daily lives

Take for example your morning coffee, is it imported?

Then the text for the labeling, marketing, branding, etc was translated and the commerce behind it needed interpreters to facilitate communication between international companies.

Or what about your favorite news channel, does it include reports from other countries?

In that case, they had to rely on quality and accurate translations and interpretations.

What about your doctor?

What about your favorite novel?

Or your favorite foreign movie?

Do you like different ethnic foods?

What about the imported clothes your wear?

Or your imported furniture?

Are you starting to become aware?
