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/.

Andy Klatt's Web Site
A perfect example of how you can say a lot by saying very little. This bilingual (English & Spanish) site has only three pages (or six, counting the Spanish versions): The home page summarizing Andy's qualifications and contact information in less than 50 words, a page with his detailed résumé, and a third one with an essay on translation.

Paula Gordon's Site
A two-headed site offering two completely different services: translations as a freelancer and paralegal services seeking part-time or project work under the supervision of an attorney. Accordingly, the site contains two different résumés one for each market. The site is simple with no graphics except the logo of Paula's DBA "Plan B" and a few check marks marking her main specialties. Each page has a slightly different background, which is unobtrusive, but looks like accidentally smudged paper.
