Translators’ Best Web Sites



About Google's Page Ranking (PR) Index: Google ranks all web pages on a scale from 0 to 10 according to the number of links that lead to that page and the importance of the referring pages. A low PR number does not reflect the quality of the page, but may tell the owner that it needs more marketing effort to make the page more "popular." You can check the PR of your, or any other, web page at http://www.prchecker.info/check_page_rank.php, for example. For an explanation of Google's PageRank technology, see http://www.google.com/technology/.




Monika Kadi Coulson's Site
http://www.albaniantranslators.com/
A simiple, unpretentious website with a lot of useful information. One of the few sites I know that emphasizes the expertise not only of the primary translators, but also of the editors/proofreaders. Good collection of useful links.

Romanian Translator's Web Site
http://www.romanian-translator.ro/index.php
A chatty home page leads to pages about Services, Links (only four links, one of which, laudably, is to the Translation Journal), Résumé, Contact, and Romanian Links. Nowhere does the translator's full name appear at the site. Some broken links

Sarka Johanka Piskovska's Site
http://encztranslation.com
A simple, but attractive site. Only three other pages can be reached from the main page, two of which are nothing else but an e-mail form.

Fabio Said's Site
http://fidusinterpres.com/pttranslator
A well-designed trilingual site in English, Portuguese, and German. The illustrations are in good taste, and the site is easy to navigate and provides ample information about the translator and useful tidbits for translators and their clients alike.
