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/.

Rad Graban's Site
A very nice site with a few graphics in good taste. The different pages (Home, Rates, Expertise, References, Contact) "slide" in when clicked on.

KStuart D. Sears's Web Site
Another site with few bells and whistles, but in excellent taste. Services btanch out to translation and interpreting. Resources features a single link, whch leads back to the same site.

Tom West 's Site
The site is more about translator training services and publications by Tom West, who is well known in the U.S. translator community as a past President of the American Translators Association and author of several excellent dictionaries. His lectures are a permanent and popular feature at ATA Conferences. A typo in the home page's title is probably responsible for the low Google page ranking.
