I’m feeling a bit sentimental after receiving an email saying that Click2Translate.com – SDL’s online translation services website – has been replaced by SDL Language Cloud Translation Services. That’s just over 11 years since it launched. Not bad going for my first major web project!

When SDL acquired Transparent Language on 13 February 2001 – coincidentally, almost exactly 13 years ago! – it inherited the FreeTranslation.com and PlusTranslation websites, which were mostly written in ColdFusion, with a bit of Java, Perl, C++ and ASP thrown in to the mix. After several months keeping PlusTranslation on life support, I chose to undertake a complete redesign and rewrite of the site in ASP and SQL Server.

Click2Translate launched six months later in November 2002 and I worked on it for the next five years. I believe the site that was deprecated yesterday was largely untouched since I stopped working on it in 2007.

Internet Archive Wayback Machine to the rescue…

Prior to the official launch in October 2002:
http://web.archive.org/web/20021014074111/http://www.click2translate.com/

Basically how I left it in September 2007, still looking the same in April 2009:
http://web.archive.org/web/20090418154115/http://www.click2translate.com/

Edit: While searching for a few more references, I was reminded that the site even spawned a few copycats –www.click2translate.com.sg, www.click2translate.in – which even copied much of my HTML, CSS, JavaScript and content at the time!

Hi Tony. Fear not for now because your code lives on! We did a major skinning job on the C2T web site and moved the URL but it's still the same code base. We will be replacing the code entirely but C2T, for now at least, is still alive and kicking.

Who’s behind the HUVr Board?

These HUVr Boards seem to be causing a lot of buzz. I was curious about who was behind HUVr Tech (huvrtech.com) and the videos, so I did some digging...

It turns out that the video was likely made by Funny or Die. The agency that created the site kind of gave it away when they let their development server URLs leak in the sharing widgets. Twitter and Google+ are littered with links pointing to https://clients.springstudio.com/fod/huvr/ (notice "fod" in the URL) and Spring Studio have definitely done work for Funny or Die before.

This is confirmed by the CNET article (http://news.cnet.com/8301-11386_3-57619897-76/this-back-to-the-future-hover-board-will-blow-your-mind/) which cites the assistant wardrobe costume designer’s portfolio:

FUNNY OR DIE
Commercial: Back to the Future HUVR BOARDS
Talent: TONY HAWK, MOBY, TERREL OWENS, SCHOOLBOY Q, CHRISTOPHER LLOYD, etc.
Key Wardrobe: Lydia Bauer
Assistant Wardrobe: Lauren Biedenharn
Nove 2013

The entry has since been removed but you can still see it in Google’s cache:

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:laurenbiedenharn.4ormat.com/11872-resume

So, the only question now is why would Funny or Die go to all this trouble to launch this viral campaign?

Friendly staff and reasonably-priced really tasty food. I can recommend the lamb masala thosai. Order it spicy, but be prepared to mop the sweat from your brow!

Delicious pizzas and child-friendly staff. Enjoyed a really pleasant evening eating outside in their shaded seating area at the back. Will definitely be visiting again and would recommend it to friends.

Clean and modern decor, child-friendly, great pasta and pizza. They also gladly made a special meal which wasn't on the menu for our two-year-old.
