The Progressive Translator blog at

addresses issues of concern to many translators that are often shunned or banned by mainstream translator platforms.

Read it. Love it or hate it. But don't ignore it.

Don't ignore it Mar 22, 2007

Thank you Robin for bringing this to our attention. I was shocked and outraged by what I read. It takes all kinds of people to make a world, even the translation world. But we all need to think about what we can do. Getting our translation organizations to specifically declare participation in, or cooperation with, torture unethical would be a first step.
