Do you send electronic mail to non-English speaking countries?

A seriously fun, I mean, a serious business application which I viewed at Interact this year was TenFour's translation software. It currently works with a few European languages, English, French, German, etc, and the mail gateway, upon request, will translate your electronic mail into another language. You can then preview the text and make edits, before sending. The gateway and five user licences costs A$2,500 or so. It also translates the e-mails you receive. Massively useful, really. Yours truly contributed to a french language forum and few years ago using a translation program. Okay, it wasn't perfect, but we could communicate and that was the important thing.

To try it, write a message in English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish. Check spelling and punctuation, mail to the language address (e.g. english@tenfour.se; french@tenfour.se) of the language you wish to translate TO, and the translated message will be sent to your mailbox with the original text as an attached file. (queries to info@tenfour.se)

Movie Reviews Index Excellent Resources

Some web resources recommended TO us.

Chainlink message board. Chainlink is hosted on the Acclaim Web Services web site at http://www.acclaimweb.com/bbs/. Webmasters post a message describing the types of sites that they are looking to link to, and give a brief description of their site. They can leave an email address to be contacted directly, and can even leave a link to their site. The only restriction we have is that they do not want the board used as a place to advertise your business, so please use it the way it was intended.

For kids, their own links page. We are also looking for reviewers of products for the younger set. Contact the editor.
