We are no longer accepting translations.
We get a fair amount of visitors from all around the world. Most
are from English speaking countries, but there are a fair amount of
you from other places, and I'd love to be able to offer you at
least some of these articles in other languages.
It has to be very frustrating at times for non-native English
speakers: most of the Web is English, and it has to be
very difficult when writers are sloppy with syntax, use
slang or humor or obfuscate with unusual vocabulary. For
technical sites, the burden is doubled: it can be hard enough
to learn something in your own language, never mind a language
that you may only partially understand.
Automatic translation software doesn't seem like the way to go, at
least not yet. So therefore I'm looking for translators and am
willing to make the following offer:
If you provide a translation of any page here, I'll offer
you 75% of available ad space for that page, plus
a prominent link to your website in both the article and at
our links page.
You can use the ad space however you like: Adsense, YPN,
or your own banner: I'll just run yours on three out of four
page views. I do reserve the right to reject pornography or
other objectionable material.
Or use it to promote your favorite charity or to post your
favorite quotation: it's your space to use.
That's the ONLY renumeration offered. I have no budget to pay
So: here's an opportunity to help out the non English speaking
folks and perhaps earn a little cash. I don't care what page(s)
you translate (although I'd suggest drawing from the more
and I don't care what language: Spanish, Greek, Croation or Choctaw,
if you read it, someone else who speaks that language might want to
Don't ask me what page to translate. I'd expect you to
pick a page that you feel is worth translating and that you feel
capable of translating well. That choice is yours to make.
If you'd like to be involved in this,
let me know by email.
DON'T WORK FROM SHOW SOURCE! I will send you the actual text
to be translated for the page you want to do. Remember - you
have to tell me what page you want to translate.
It is better for everyone (me and your readers) if you use HTML
character entities if at all possible. In other words, use ¨
for an umlaut over a letter, etc.
I do not want and will not accept Microsoft Word or any
other word processor format. I want ASCII text, optionally
with HTML markup. If you can't do that, I don't want it.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.
Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
