While I’m busy elsewhere, here are some more parasitical offerings:
Babelport: There’s a new translation portal out, Babelport. I didn’t bother to look at it at first because these things are springing up like nobody’s business, but I’ve already seen a reference to its price calculator that sounded interesting and Céline of Naked Translations speaks well of it. She also locates another translator’s blog, linguatransl_blog, by Inka-Maria Kunz (be careful – it’s very pink).
Babelport was founded by Christian von Hansel – sorry, that should be Christian V. Hansel (clever middle initial there), who tries his hand at answering a legal translation question (EN>DE ‘void where prohibited by law’). It seems, alas, to have some kind of points system like ProZ.
