Jost Zetzsche publishes the monthly Tool Box newsletter for the translation industry. In his latest newsletter he discussed machine translation and Google Translate. What I found most interesting though was that Google has added a link on the Google Translate result page, where people who uses this service can look for a professional translation if they are not happy with the results Google Translate produces. This is good news for us translators. If you have a website you can increase your chances of being found by these people by adding the following on your home page: “professional translation for [your language]”. Easy and well worth trying. Thanks for the tip Jost!

    It’s interesting that you mention that link on Google Translate. I had noticed it a while ago, but when I went to look today I saw that it is gone. (Or is it just hiding?) Either way, that’s a useful phrase for a translation website’s SEO!
