You have already received a lot of praise for the journal, but since its a lot of work, you can probably take a little more praise from time
My first visit to your page was a fateful one; I read the article by
Cathy [Flick] on how she became a science translator, and got in touch with her

Since such a big part of the translation work is necessarily done in
solitude, all means of getting in touch with other translators for
information exchange and just company are welcome, but I must say
that the TJ is an outstanding onewell organized, very
helpful, very interesting, nice to look at, a boost to the general
translators self-esteem, and last but not least, its free and
therefore readily available to us beginners who arent making the big
Thank you, and my best and warmest wishes for the new year.

Gabe, visitei o Jornalparabens! Fico impressionado de ver a seriedade
que transparece de suas páginas. Quem quer que esteja traduzindo,
profissionalmente ou não, ou pensando em se arriscar por esta senda, devia lê-lo. Sonho com o dia em que as nossas faculdades com cursos de
letras/tradução assinem o seu jornal.
Quem sabe em 98?

I am very interested in your Translation Journal.
However, reading everything online on the web
can be a little tedious. I wonder if you are
planning to make the journal available in downloadable
form, e.g. PDF format?
Herbert Eppel, Enderby, Leicester, United Kingdom
Editors answer: At this time, a PDF version of the Translation Journal is not in our plans, but many readers print out the pages theyre interested in for off-line reading and archiving.
This looks like a very promising publication indeed. Why havent I heard
more about it? The article on inflation accounting in Brazil [by Danilo Nogueira] was
especially useful for me.
Happy New Year!

Journal; however, it does look as
if it had been published for a much longer time.

found most of them
useful in my own job. The translation
aid reviews look nice. And I like
the whole idea of the project, as
well as the appearance.
I think this is what we all need,
an excellent on-line guide, quick
Thank you guys!

[The articles] look great, in fact, are easy on the eyes and have a convenient layout. Do not change too much, pleaseit certainly aint broke. A small problem is that the right half of the frame does not always fit onto the screen.
... There are too many long lists of links out there and too few annotated directories and specialized sites. Yours is a fantastic exception!

Im extremely glad youre doing this. I think its a terrific achievement.

I enjoy your policy of using actual working translators to write your
articles. It gives them a very hands-on touch.
