Thanks Henry. It always amazes me just how many resources there are on the net. Hearing stories of how translation used to be before the advent of computers, I\'m glad that I didn\'t have to do it back then. You hear about people having to retype stuff every time there was a mistake and having to work for local customers, as it was customary to hand-deliver translationsicon_smile.gif

not to speak.... Jun 3, 2002

of having to go to the library, often in vain, talking to the plumber, to the electrician, you name it, in search of the elusive term...

I cannot believe that I used to translate without all that we have today, including http://www.proz.com.


Cheers, indeed!

Hey, I still talk to the plumber! Jun 3, 2002

And to the gas station attendant, and the pen expert (although I used the Internet to track that one down)...
