About this blog

Translator's Shack is a collection of links, news, reviews and opinions about translation technologies. It's edited and updated by Roberto Savelli, an English to Italian translator, project manager and company owner of Albatros Soluzioni Linguistiche, a team of English-Italian translators, which hosts and supports this blog.

The Life as a PM category, managed by Gabriella Ascari, contains topics that are less technical in nature, but which we're sure will be appreciated by owners of small translation businesses and freelancers.

Here are links to my pages on some social networks:

At 30.00 EUR, this inexpensive tool may be a valuable solution for translators who are using tools that do not have file-prepping capabilities (i.e. externalizing or separating and protecting HTML code that does not need to be translated or otherwise changed).

Has any one heard of the tool or used it for translation projects?
