I recently spent time looking for online resources that target linguists, localizers, terminologists and people generally interested in language-related matters. I was surprised to see how many great online language resources there are (both entertaining and informative). I had a good time reading and will definitely revisit them.

 

Here are some I especially liked:

http://www.lingforum.com/forum/ (Academic linguistics discussion forum)
www.proz.com  (Web portal for language professionals)
http://webtools.uiuc.edu/blog/view?blogId=25 (Blog on sociolinguistic and political language issues)
http://languageandhumor.com/blog/  (Blog on language, linguistics, and humor)

http://transubstantiation.wordpress.com/  (Translation blog)
http://iate.europa.eu/iatediff/SearchByQueryLoad.do?method=load (Inter Active Terminology Europe, Search tool from European Union)
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/globalization/terminology/ab.jsp#a00 (IBM Glossary)
www.multilingual.com  (Multilingual Computing homepage)

 

I am certain that there are many more I am not aware of. Please let me know which language-related websites, forums and blogs you recommend.

 

I am looking forward to hearing from you!
