Being global

Attending an international conference means you meet colleagues from all sorts of countries, including those that don't have English as their first language (though their ability to speak English humbles me). Occasionally I follow them on twitter to maintain the connection and to get a different perspective in my twitter stream.

Obviously they will sometimes tweet in English but often, especially as they return to their own homes, they will tweet in their preferred language. This is a problem for monolingual me, especially if something intrigues me.

I use Tweetbot as my preferred twitter client and it has a handy translate option! 


Problem solved.

Here is an example.
