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/.




Mike Bastin's Web Site
http://www.mikebastin.com/
Mike is a French-speaking Belgian, living in the Dominican Republic, translating from Dutch, Spanish, and English into his native language. He also offers web design and website maintenance. The site is aesthetically pleasing, although somewhat cluttered with ads. One sentence from his website that you don't often see elsewhere: "I do NOT translate automotive, legal or otherwise medical documents of any sort because I do not have any expertise nor feeling for those subject matters."

Yuan (Andy) Wang's Web Site
http://www.zhongmeitranslation.com/
A nice-looking, clean site. Somewhat heavy on graphics (Andy's picture appears three times on the home page), but contains plenty of information on Andy's qualifications, tools, and credentials.

Hengky Chiok's Site
http://www.indolingua.net
A fancy site by an Indonesian translator-interpreter. The lack of specifics is compensated by a flashy intro page and tasteful graphics.
