"Really busy!!!" and "A lot going on!"

Some of the feedback we've been receiving about this website can be summarized in a few words: "really busy" and "a lot going on..." And, of course, the observations are accurate. The effect, for better or for worse, is actually intentional.

The FreeTranslationClassifieds website is, as the name clearly indicates, founded upon a classifieds listings model. In effect, our ambition is that it become the "go to" Translation Classifieds or a Translator Classifieds platform on the web, with the incorporation of a more generic and inclusive Language Classifieds concept.

And of course, at the risk of stating the obvious, it is blatantly commercial. So by definition, the medium is busy; chock full of listings covering a wide range of topics, with a lot of things going on. But don't dismiss it for being so advertising-oriented. Our view is that advertising is good information.

The concept was born from a need that we identified when we were looking for information and resources for a related translation agency. We saw the need for an online medium where the buyers and sellers of products and services related to the linguistics sector in general and the translation community specifically could come together in a marketplace created as a "flea market" of wanted or unwanted reference material, language tools, service and business ideas, trade information, opportunities for exchange, and much more, that would appeal not only to the narrow confines of the business of translation but also to the broader interests of translators and linguists alike.

Our objective is to provide a medium for conveying a lot of information covering a wide range of topics while doing so in short and informative snippets. We are not aiming to replicate what's being said and done elsewhere in the online language and translation realm, but rather to act as a conduit to the cornucopia of resources available to translators and linguists on the web. All of it packaged, perhaps not so neatly, in a one-stop-shop language marketplace.

It also occurred to us that the format should be structured in such a way that it would invite outsiders to have a look and engage with our target communities, especially the users and buyers of language related products and services in general and translation tools and resources in particular.

Finally, as active participants in the language industry, we are interested in things that go beyond the confines of linguistics and translation. We're interested in world travel, cross-cultural matters, health information, lifestyle alternatives, leisure choices, reaching out for new friendships and yes, even romance... And what better community to exchange ideas, products and services than with our like-minded brethren when it comes to these areas of general yet common interest. So we added a dollop of classified listing categories to cater specifically to this broader range of topics in the hope that it would be a source of solid information, intriguing ideas, adventurous entertainment, and humour.

In our initial efforts to launch this language and translation classifieds marketplace, we have pulled together a veritable jumble of information from a wide variety of sources and resources on the web. As a result, a number of our language, translation and translator resources have literally been copied from other sources on the internet. While our objective to is to give due credit to sources, in our rush to accumulate material, explicit authorization for use may not have been secured in all instances.

However, our objective is not to plagiarize but rather to publicize, inform and act as a conduit to the original publishers. Wherever we have borrowed material from other sources, we have endeavoured to give proper credit and direct our readers and users to the source of the material presented, typically by way of a direct link to the originating website.

Over time, the existing listings will be reworked such that they will provide a brief summary in review summary of the resource being featured. Also, over time, we hope that our visitors will become contributors and begin listing their own favored or favorite resources. In other words a member would share with others (by way of a listing) what her own favorite sources of information are. So please, do browse our Translation Classifieds and feel free to add to them.

In the interim, we are in the process of securing permission from sources from which the information is being replicated.

If you have any comments or suggestions to offer we invite you to contact us directly.
