Even in this industry it never hurts to know a bit about coding. I would even otherwise emphasize the importance of exploring the possibilities of technology as early as possible at school and in your career (MT, TMS, anything new).

Wise words, +Jari Herrgård. At my work we sometimes deal with translators who are unfamiliar with or even resistant to using various CAT tools. I think there will always be clients that don't demand the use of such tools, but approaching them with enthusiasm and an open mind I believe will increase your marketability. I have heard of CAT tool companies offering trial versions or steep discounts for students. It would be wise to take advantage of those when possible.

Hi Folks,

Do you know if there are lists of language names and their translations into various languages available somewhere? If those lists would be downloadable, it would be great. I'm just looking into what is around, so I'm interested in any lists of this kind.

I'm going to speak to game developers next week about localization. General presentation about why they should localize and how they should do it. What would be the one word of wisdom you would share with a game developer regarding internationalization or localization?

I must admit that this is also my opinion :). And it is a great news.

Did the Google+ widget just disappear in the last update? Can't find it on my Android anymore.

Odd. It disappeared from the home screen and can't find it in the widget list either. Should probably remove and redownload the application. I'm using a Desire Z.
