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/.

Pavinee Daniel's Site
A simple site in good taste. Links from the home page lead to About, Services, Resume, Samples, and Contact. Not much verbiage, but concise, matter-of fact information.

Maida Babcock's Web Site
Another attractive site with the home page in five languages (English and four South Slavic languages: Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, and Montenegrin). The few graphic elements include a mallet, illustrating the translator's specialization in legal translations, and the flags of the four South Slavic countries.

Badi Badiozamani's Site
A site which has little to do with translation, but is highly interesting as a pamphlet of Mr. Badiozamani's campaign for governor of California. It also features the Declaration of Human Rights in English and Persian, the U.S. Constitution (in English only), and information about Iran and the Center for East-West Understanding.
