Incentive to incorporate

Ever thought of incorporating? I thought I’d pass this on in the spirit of stimulating the economy. Note that through this promotion MyCorporation waives the US$149 service fee for filing all the paperwork (researching what and how to file, checking the company name for availability, providing customized and editable internal operating documents, providing customized stock or membership certificates) you need to found your new company (LLC or corporation) – I have no affiliation with the company:

Form a Free Corporation or Free LLC, the leader in online incorporation, is offering its filing services free of charge when you form a corporation or limited liability company at their website between December 1 – 5, 2008. Now that’s economic stimulus! Bookmark this web site so you won’t miss out.

P.S. Please check out the Thoughts on Translations blog post on incorporating at

Free and Open Source Translation Management System

As a follow-up to my presentations
1) LT-4: Free and Open Source Software for Translators
2) LSP-5: Manage Like a Pro: Translation Management

at the 2008 ATA Conference here is a note on a Free and Open Source Translation Management System:

As I mentioned during my talks there is a new enterprise class Translation Management System (TMS) about to be released under an open source license. If you are interested in this topic and/or software at all I encourage you to attend the GlobalSight Introductory Webinar on Nov. 24th at 4 PM GMT. This will give you a chance to view a demo and participate in a discussion on what is needed to make this open source TMS a success. They would love to get more participation from translators. The best way for you to get involved right now is to sign up on the website (, so you can receive the latest news and updates. A more interactive website with discussion forums, blogs, etc. will be launched in December.

Another key event is the European GlobalSight Community Meeting, held at the LISA Forum Europe in Dublin on Thursday, December 11th starting at 9 AM GMT. Although LISA is helping promote this meeting, participants are not required to register (and pay) for the LISA conference if you want to just attend the meeting.

And lastly, I’m sure you are interested in downloading the application. I’m happy to tell you that the product will be available for download on January 5, 2009.

Thank you for your time.

P.S. I have no affiliation with Welocalize or GlobalSight other than as a supporter of Free and Open Source Software projects.
