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/.

Eric Bullington's Web Site
A clean, attractive website. It is formatted as a blog, but contains information intended as permanent. The top bar has five links: Home, About, Contact, CV, and Expertise. The page also contains a link to Eric's Twitter page and to the translators' associations he belongs to. The Archives link (standard with blogs) is blank.
