Links and personal
You are what you link... The list starts off with the professional and as such rather harmless links. Those more personal links will be visible för courageous guests who dare scroll further down.
...SFÖ - The Swedish Association of Professional translators, the youngest and biggest association for translators in Sweden, with almost 1000 members. I work on the web team and in the grouip that will plan the 2008 conference in Västerås! The SFÖ web site includes a highly efficient search engine for those hunting a translator with a particular set of competences. One of the translators that may pop up there is...
...Cecilia Falk, whose web site belongs to the heritage of translation business - a true gold mine of information for newbies as well as for seasoned translators.
Norskjal - a very active mailing list for queries and thoughts concerning translations to and from the Nordic languages. We discuss in a mixture of nordic languages and English, and also manage to meet IRL from time to time.
The Translator's Home Companion is a rather more international classic among translation sites. Loads of information on tools for translators, mainly so called CAT tools (Computer Aided Translation).
Translation Journal - a webzine with sometimes immensly valuable articles on translation, written by various translators. The layout of the site leaves a lot to be desired. but content as well as links makes it well worth a visit. I am especially fond of Danilo Nogueira's articles.
The Corporate Bullshit Generator, obviously intensely used by some writers. Fortunately any such sentence, void of content, can be efficiently translated with the aid of its Swedish counterpart, the Floskelgenerator at Avigsidan.
Alienapics - the site which my wife Anna has created in order to display her photos and poems. Anna's photos are usually unexpected and intriguing views of objects which one would normally not give a second thought.
Fotosidan - a cool community for photo freaks. (No particular logo, thus I use one of my own photos on the site). All in Swedish, but photography is an international language, so what's the problem? My personal corner of Fotosidan is here. Not all that many photos yet, but that will change!
Bruce Lee, the divine wind. Not the most beautiful but probably the most complete site about Bruce Lee - the man who showed the western world what oriental martial arts is all about.
Art nudes - a photo blog with beautiful tasteful nudes that provide a wealth of inspiration. No particular logo, so I borrow this beautiful torso by Michael Barnes (N.B: it is his photo, not his torso).
Epicurus and Epicurean philosophy. One of those numerous ancient Greeks, one who had a lot of clever stuff to tell us. So had the other ancient Greeks in the philosophy book as well I presume, but I nurture a particularly soft spot for Epicurus. A few quotes:
"Before you eat or drink anything, consider carefully who you eat or drink with."
"Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants."
"Is God willing to prevent evil,
but not able?
Let me end this link list with another philosophic quote:
"I don't need to be induced in
temptation - I can walk myself!"
