L10NWorks offers a good selection of web-based and downloadable localization tools


The Tools section of the L10NWorks website contains a wealth of free resources for translation and localization professionals.

L10NWorks The list is neatly divided into logical categories such as Encoding, QA Tools, etc. and is easy to navigate. Some of the tools do not need any download or install: You upload your data (the site promises not to retain or use it in any way) and let the programs process it. Once the procedure is complete, you can download the modified data for reuse in your projects. Tools that need a local PC for processing can be easily downloaded and installed with a simple click.

imageEach single tool contains specific sub-sections with brief instructions, a feedback form that allows users to rate the tool, and some information about the tool’s author.

All in all a very useful, easy to navigate site which I hope will be kept up to date as new tools are created or improved.

    2. Finally, when I was talking about blog metrics I forgot that the definite site for modern internet metrics is Avinash Kaushik’s. He has this post, which is specifically about measuring the success of blogs. The whole post (well, really, the whole blog) is worth reading. But the short version is that he recommends trying to measure:
