Translation Journal

To All Our Readers, Contributors, and Friends, We Wish a


he Translation Journal is celebrating the millennium (OK, you skeptics, we know the new millennium doesn't start until January 1st 2001...) with a larger-than-usual issue thanks to the hard work of those who are generously sharing their expertise and ideas through this medium. You will find, in particular, some interesting insight into the past, present and future of translation. No fewer than five articles deal with specific problems of the profession from translating for the new media to collection problems, in addition to other topics from translation aid software to neologisms in translating for organizations dedicated to economic development. A special two-part article reproduces the PR session at the St. Louis Conference of the American Translators Association, featuring former White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers.

Enjoy this special issue of your on-line journal, have a safe and happy Holiday season and a healthy, happy, and prosperous year 2000!
