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/.

Linda Marianiello's Site
A website shared by Linda's two careers: translation and music. A simple website in good taste (what would you expect from an artist?) and basic information about Linda and her professional qualifications. The bio that appears when you click on the word "Experience" refers to both Linda and her husband Franz. The words Legal / Business / Literary / Music and the Arts on the home page are not linked to other pages containing more information about Linda's specialties.

Inge Noeninger's Web Site
Another husband-wife site by Inge and Peter Noeninger, specializing in English, German, and French legal translations. The site is attractive, easy to navigate, and provides basic information on the partners' capabilities, although you would expect a bilingual or trilingual site from a couple that started their practice in Germany and is residing in Canada.
