Two FIT notices
1. FIT is currently represented in several arenas on social media:
FIT’s official Facebook page - containing information about FIT, FIT’s member organisations and other language-related issues.
This page currently has more than 6200 likes (6000 followers).
XXI FIT World Congress 2017, Brisbane, Australia - providing a variety of information about the FIT World Congress in Brisbane, as well as individual items on disruption and diversification.
This page currently has176 likes.
XXI FIT World Congress - Disruption and Diversification - A Facebook page promoting the actual event.
Go to this page to share the event with your Facebook friends.
FIT Europe - promoting the interests of translators and interpreters in Europe.
This page currently has 603 likes.
FIT LatAm - Spanish-language Facebook page promoting El Centro Regional América Latina (FIT LatAm).
This page currently has 183 likes.
IMPORTANT: If you have a Facebook account and you wish to help improve the visibility of FIT - and who among you would not want to do that? - please visit these sites and "like" each of them. As you can see from the above, FIT’s official Facebook page currently has more than 6000 likes, which at first glance may seem impressive. Since our organisation represents almost 100,000 translators, interpreters and terminologists throughout the world, however, I believe this figure should be much higher. After you have "liked" the various sites, you should be notified regularly when these pages are updated. The whole idea behind social networking sites is that popular postings on social media "go viral", i.e. they are spread quickly and widely among users by those who «like" and "share" them, it is imperative that you «like" and "share" as many postings as possible Only in this way can we build up a loyal group of followers. It is my hope and belief that we can easily double or even triple the number of people following us on each of our accounts in almost no time.
FIT’s official Twitter Feed - cross-posts of items published on FIT’s Facebook page as well as retweets of other interesting tweets.
FIT President - The official Twitter feed of the FIT President, where Henry Liu highlights, tweets and retweets on issues relating to translation, interpreting, terminology and multilingualism.
FIT Congress 2017 - Official Twitter account of XXI World Congress of the International Federation of Translators, 3-5 August 2017, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre
FIT_Europe_President - Official Twitter account of the President of FIT Europe.
FIT LatAM - Official Twitter Account of the Regional Centre Latin America of the International Federation of Translators.
FIT_Babel - The Official Twitter Feed of Babel, the International Academic Journal published by .
IMPORTANT: The same principle applies to FIT's various Twitter accounts. If you have a Twitter account, please make a conscious effort to follow all of FIT's Twitter accounts. Also, please "reply", "retweet" or "like" as many tweets posted from these accounts as possible.

2. Dear friends and colleagues,,
We are happy to announce that the first 2017 issue of the FIT Newsletter Translatio is ready for download. Here are the links to the English version and the French version.
Among all the interesting and important articles, two have highest priority: the official invitation for the Statutory Congress in Brisbane, and the Call for the 2017 ITD theme.
In past calls, you have been very responsive, and most of the themes you proposed were chosen. Now it is time for a new call. Please send us your proposal by mid February. Your participation will be highly appreciated.
Another real good piece of news is that now you can read Translatio not only on Android devices (reader to be downloaded here) or the FIT website but also on Apple devices: Look for Translatio in the Apple store.
With best wishes for a happy and successful New Year,
Your Translatio firstname.lastname@example.org
