Entrevista a Romina Marazatto Sparano sobre SEA

En su visita a Argentina a fines de 2018, entrevistamos a Romina Marazatto Sparano, traductora, correctora y profesora argentino-estadounidense que nos contó sobre la creación de SEA (Spanish Editors Association) en EE. UU.

El objetivo de SEA es agrupar a todos los correctores de español para los EE. UU., tanto de textos producidos directamente en español como de aquellos que provienen de traducciones y de adaptaciones de traducciones. Asimismo, SEA apunta a fomentar el reconocimiento profesional, promover la calidad y la ética de la corrección y brindar oportunidades de capacitación y un espacio de interacción profesional.

Todo corrector o traductor interesado en ser miembro de SEA debe presentar sus antecedentes y, una vez que haya obtenido la aprobación del Comité de Membresía, se le dará de alta al perfil de miembro para que aparezca en el directorio de SEA y así lo encuentren otros profesionales o clientes.

¡Les damos la bienvenida a SEA y le deseamos mucho éxito!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gratitude is the way home. Gratitude means ALL in life. The true meaning of Thanksgiving is about being with your loved ones and being thankful for all the good things in your life.

Life is fleeting and we need to stop, thank and act. being-thankful

According to the dictionary, it is the expression of gratitude, especially to God.
“He offered prayers in thanksgiving for his safe arrival”.
In North America it is an annual national holiday marked by religious observances and a traditional meal. The holiday commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrim Fathers in 1621, and is held in the US on the fourth Thursday in November. A similar holiday is held in Canada, usually on the second Monday in October.

The meaning of Thanksgiving has undergone numerous transitions — from an expression of gratitude for survival, a council’s recognition of its flourishing community, submission of the local natives, the defeat over the British to a collection of our nation’s traditions and values. Over the centuries, families added their customs to the Thanksgiving celebration, preserving that which they held most precious.

  • To gather in unity – It is refreshing and invigorating when people come together, in celebration of a common purpose. It is a reconciliation of differences as well as a time of healing. In sharing our victories as well as our struggles, we find strength and hope. The richness of our Community.
  • To teach the young – In stories retold, each generation brings purpose and significance to the richness of their heritage. Faded pictures, sentimental knick-knacks before the meal, all form a Thanksgiving family legacy.
  • To prepare the heart – In gratitude, we humbly reflect upon all the gifts (family, friends, health) that saturate our lives. By “giving thanks” we choose to extend ourselves and give to others less fortunate. Out of the abundance of our hearts, we are able to offer our resources to help others.

Thanksgiving is an attitude of the heart that reinforces an intimate relationship with God.

“Thanksgiving dinner” Enjoy your turkey!
