Tips for Translators: Delivery

You have completed your translation assignment and now it is ready to be delivered. If you are fortunate enough to have clients within your area, you could deliver the assignment personally. But outside of this scenario, you need to clarify with the client how they want their work delivered. The terms of delivery can change due to external factors, i.e., a labor strike, technology failure or natural disaster or as a result of a request by client.

Microsoft Translator launches Language Labs – Contextual Thesaurus, Bookmarklet, and Universal Text Input | LiveSide.net

Microsoft Translator launches Language Labs – Contextual Thesaurus, Bookmarklet, and Universal Text Input... To put it simply, it is an English-to-English machine translation system that lets you explore alternate ways of expressing the same sentence, phrase, or idea. How it differs from traditional thesaurus is that it provides synonyms or near synonyms for words according to its context. For example, try looking up the word “break” in a conventional thesaurus, then look up “businesses are asking for tax breaks” in the Contextual Thesaurus, and you will see the difference.
