Links for translators: opinion Sep 11, 2005

This is going to be a magnificent tool.It is easy to use, not taking anything away from ProZ but with a feeling that it is your very own tool. No nonsense design.

Only one objection:
The police is really too dainty for the over 40 I am, even with my glasses on. I know it seems to be "in" to have very elegant and fine letters on a website to the point it looks ethereal, but H...! when we are working and sometimes desperately in a hurry, elegance is not our main worry.

I am looking forward to using it, but I hope my plea will be heard.

If the font is simply too small, you may be able to use your browser to enlarge it. With Firefox, press Ctrl+ to enlarge, or Ctrl- to reduce.

With Internet Explorer, it's View > Text size: that works with ProZ and KudoZ but not with the "Links for Translators" page.
If you only have Internet Explorer, that could be a reason to get Firefox (it's free, at least it is at present).

How to change font size in browser Sep 12, 2005

With Opera, you can zoom in and out using PLUS and MINUS on the number pad. This zooms not only the text but also images. I find it useful when I encouter text which is really, really small. Most browsers have shortcut keys for increasing the font size, although I think Opera is the only one that also increases the images.
