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/.

Vivtek (Michael Roberts' Web Site)
A peculiar Web site, starting with the fact that it belongs to a German-to-English translator residing in Ponce, Puerto Rico. The site is unfocused (to say the least), but funny and ecletic. Check out the Toon-O-Matic!

Rahi S. Moosavi's Web Site
A somewhat busy main page, but plenty of useful information about Farsi and related languages, TM tools, Farsi fonts (under construction), and a calendar converter.

Zion Avdi's Site
A tasteful, matter-of-fact site. Only one of the site's five pages (the Résumé page) goes beyond one screenful, yet the site conveys a solid impression of competence and seriousness.
