I wrote a short post on why I believe mind maps are a better choice than style guides for translators. If you had to work with those 30-page long style guides and survived, or if you are looking for a more efficient way to manage your style references, you may find this interesting.

I like it, but when I clicked on the "Like" button, it asked for my email and details, which I don't usually like to provide when clicking a "Like" button. So I'm posting it here. I think it's a great idea, as I can rarely be bothered looking at or following style guides. In fact, if obliged to use one that I don't agree with, I usually just refuse the job.
