html coding... Nov 23, 2008

Seems I need to take a refresher course in htm coding...icon_smile.gif

I used Open Office Writer to produce the text, but it obviously has no regard for line breaks in htm...

And now I don't know how to re-edit the text here :-\

externat translations Feb 3, 2009

I would recommend also asking people who work in speciffic field in some company abroad (let's say - german company working with cnc machines) for translating the english expressions/terms used in sheet metal industry. This is just the best help ever. The professional translator might not know them either!! Since he does NOT work with cnc machines in Germany...

I agree, which is why I recommend that a representative/affiliate of the Client in the target country should approve the glossary before it is presented to the translator/agency.
