We are very honored and proud to be included in the ‘100 protagonistas iberoamericanos de 2013‘ a selection of men and women who have been relevant the past year, according to Spanish newspaper ‘El País’.
We are being overwhelmed these days with all the coverage in Spanish media. Here are a bunch of examples:
El País – La donostiarra Forvo, entre las 50 mejores webs, según ‘Time’
Eitb – La revista ‘Time’ sitúa a la web ‘Forvo’ entre las 50 mejores del mundo
Diario Vasco – Una web donostiarra se sitúa entre las cincuenta mejores del mundo
El confidencial – La desconocida web española que ‘Time’ incluye entre las 50 mejores del mundo
Naiz – Para ‘Time’, la vasca Forvo está entre las 50 mejores web
Berria - Ahoskatzeen wikipedia
RTVE – Carta abierta 2.0
ABC – Forvo, la ‘Wikipedia’ de las pronunciaciones
You don’t get to be featured in Time Magazine everyday.

We have been recently asked on how we define success in respect to Forvo. This is the answer:
Forvo has been selected as one of the MARS Best Free Reference Web Sites of 2012. MARS is the “MARS: Emerging Technologies in Reference” section of the Reference and User Services Association of the American Library Association (ALA).
Voted for by member librarians from around the United States, Forvo is one of 26 web pages to be recognized by MARS this year as an outstanding site for reference information and is included in the list of MARS Best of Free Reference Web Sites of 2012
Promt, creator of popular translation services has teamed up with Forvo adding Forvo pronunciations into their translation software. This is the first translation service that is powered by Forvo native speakers giving the users the real pronunciation of more than 1,000,000 words in 200 languages.
This new service is backed up by the revamped Forvo API. More than 1,000 developers are also using Forvo API for other interesting projects.
While we keep on working on new improvements for the website we are happy to see more and more people discovering and enjoying Forvo.
Here is this week’s review at the laughingsquid.com
BTW: Yes, we are aware how close we are to the 1,000,000 pronunciations mark.
