In today’s life everyone is talking about Social Media, the importance of having a good strategy or, for example, to use social media channels effectively in order to reach more visits and followers. There are several specialised sectors where to find interesting information about translation, interpreting, localisation, language learning and terminology among other language fields. Let’s see what we find about terminology on social media.
