Thanks Laurel, I'll poke around the etranslate site.

A list of localizers might be useful to some. Many of them find their
way to me, so it is not so useful in my case. What would be nice to my
mind is a list that indicated the relative distinctions between them,
strengths and weaknesses...
I find they all market the same benefits. However, some are stronger in
technology, some in process, some in relationships, some are better at
big projects, some at fast turnaround.... But it is hard to know the
differences without either a personal reference or personal experience
with them. Others may have a different opinion. You might try the
nelocsig list to discuss this as well.
