    La Red de Asociaciones de Correctores de Textos en Español (RedACTE) es una agrupación de colectivos profesionales nacida en 2020 tras años de colaboración. Una de las primeras actividades de esta nueva red fue una reunión virtual, celebrada el 29 de junio pasado, entre representantes de las asociaciones que componen la Red y responsables de la Fundéu: su director general, Javier Lascuráin; uno de sus especialistas lingüísticos, David Gallego; y Francisco Javier Pérez, miembro de su Consejo Asesor y actual secretario general de la Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española, ASALE.

    A partir de este primer acercamiento, se ha forjado una colaboración para intercambiar opiniones sobre términos y expresiones nuevos o que generan dudas en el uso diario del idioma. 

    ¡Y Fundéu ya ha anunciado la colaboración en su sitio!

    SEA President Helen Eby will teach an upcmoing webinar at Editors Canada on August 6. 

    Here are the detials! http://training.editors.ca/upcoming_webinar/clear-spanish-text-in-a-foreign-land-is-it-possible/

    How does a Spanish editor or translator approach working on a text for a Spanish-speaking audience in a country like the US where Spanish is not the dominant language? Standards are set by those who use Spanish in daily communication. Translators and editors must spend time with this group to find ways to write text that communicates clearly without sounding awkward, balancing prescriptive and descriptive approaches carefully. Helen will present her book on this topic.

    As we recently shared, SEA is now a member of the Alliance of Spanish Editing Associations called RedACTE for its acronym in Spanish. 

    This Alliance started with 8 associations--from Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Spain, Uruguay, USA--and has already ushered the foundation of a new association in Costa Rica.

    Among the Alliance's goals: sharing resources and opportunities for members. With this in mind, all of the associations post activities in a shared calendar that you can access here: https://redacte.org/calendario/

    Check it often as more events are added almost daily, or better yet, subscribe!

    SEA President Helen Eby attended the Editorial Freelancers Association conference in Chicago this year (2019) and networked with conference sponsors to obtain benefits for SEA members. 

    The Chicago Manual of Style publishers now offers SEA members a significant discount on the print version of the Chicago Deusto Manual of Style for Spanish. 

    The University of Deusto has created a full adaptation, not just a translation, based on the sixteenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. This new work retains much of the structure and underlying style of the English edition of the Manual, but offers tailored advice to those who work with words in Spanish-speaking countries. Drawing on the expertise of the world-renowned University of Deusto, this adaptation places a special emphasis on publishing in the scientific and technical fields—an area that has shown dramatic growth globally in recent years. The Manual de estilo Chicago Deusto includes the most up-to-date digital writing standards, as well as current International Organization for Standardization norms, with attention paid to the latest linguistic suggestions from the Real Academia Española.

    Professional SEA members can now access their discount code by logging in and visiting the Discount Codes page under Member Benefits (only visible to Professional Members when logged in). 

    Visit the page for The University of Chicago Press Books here

    https://press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/distributed/M/bo18426406.html

    Members can use their discount at checkout here: https://www.press.uchicago.edu/index.html
