WebBudget locates, classifies and counts all translatable text in an Internet file, including all the META tags, BUTTON words, JAVA messages, or ALT words. It also counts entire projects (folders + subfolders), from disk or online.
At KENAX we always strive to support our translators with ample translator resources. Such as terminological support from our many translation consultants, or the host of online dictionaries we plan to add to these pages over the long term. Many translation agencies perform what we like to refer to as a McDonald's translation service - high turnover with minimal costs. But minimising costs this way can often also mean a lack of support for the translator. Perhaps the translator would like context help or has some questions to the translation agency's customer. But mediating these concerns between the translator and its customer will require extra manpower to handle the increased correspondence, something which many translation agencies lack the capacity for. Not only are the translation resources on this page intended to support our translators while they translate, they indicate our willingness to help them and provide them with the full support they need while providing translations for us.
Another form of support can be found through our translation tips pages at the top. Translations is not only about text but also has much to do with knowing how to format documents properly and how to use some of the translation software available on the market. But once a project is active, the translator does not always have time to read extensive pages concerning translation tips, in which case we provide them with the translation resources and tools on a point-by-point basis, so that they can deliver their translation in a quality and timely manner.
Yet another form of providing translation resources is financial. Many translation agencies pay 60 days eom (end of month), meaning that it can take up to 90 days to receive payment for one's hard earned translation if they began the work at the beginning of the month. But we feel that everyone should be fairly paid within 30 days from delivering their translation.
And lastly, one might include moral support as a form of translation resources. Exercising patience, compassion and general moral support for the translator will create a comfortable atmosphere of cooperation, not one under stress and duress to meet an unrealistic deadline, but one where full support of translation resources in all its dimension can guarantee a quality translation. Something which we are sure our customers appreciate too!
