WebTranslateIt has reached carbon neutrality

Posted by Estelle on September 11, 2017

We believe it is now impossible to deny global warming and the fact that we are all responsible for it, this is why we have decided to offset our carbon footprint.
We first had to calculate it, which was not easy because many websites claim to give accurate results. The best carbon footprint calculator we found was CarbonFootprint.com. The list of questions they ask is very thorough but it is still easy to answer all of them as long as you have access to your company’s expenses.

To our surprise, we discovered that the biggest impact didn’t come from our travels, electricity or water consumption but from the manufactured goods we are buying, especially high-tech ones: laptops, phones. We work remotely, so we don’t have to commute, and our servers are hosted in an already carbon-neutral datacenter in the Netherlands (Leaseweb’s amazing AMS-01).

We looked for solutions to compensate our carbon footprint for the past year and fortunately there are quite a few non-profit organizations that will offer you to participate to projects helping develop sustainable energies all over the world, especially in developing countries, or even just initiatives as simple as reforestation.

We decided to get involved with the Fondation Goodplanet which was created by the photographer and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

We are now really proud to announce that WebTranslateit is

We will keep making daily efforts to change our consuming habits and will collaborate further with the Fondation Goodplanet. Join us in the fight, we believe climate change is not a fatality.

New in WebTranslateIt: HTML validations

Posted by Edouard on August 10, 2017

We released an update to the translation validator so that it now inspects and detects eventual problems in the HTML code in the translations.

If some HTML code of a translation is missing or differs from the HTML code of the source text a warning message will be displayed. This will help increase the quality of the translator’s translations.

Here’s an example of when a translation’s HTML tag is missing or is completely different:

And when a translation HTML code is not properly balanced.

We also added new validation code to check the number of line breaks is identical in the source and target text:

As usual, validation warning messages are just warnings. You can always click on “Skip Validation” to save your translation anyway.

We hope you will find these improvements useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.

WebTranslateIt now sponsors Málaga Bikes

Posted by Estelle on August 7, 2017

WebTranslateIt’s owner Edouard has been into cycling for a few years now, from the long and flat roads of the French Atlantic coast up through the wilderness of Connemara and down to the Andalusian mountains of Málaga.

It just seemed natural that if we ever were to sponsor any sport event, it would be bike related. And after a few interesting encounters, we were given the opportunity to sponsor not only an event, but a team.

There are many cycling clubs in Andalusia, for its climate allows the sport all year round —just be an early riser in the Summer!— and we decided to help a new club start out. Málaga Bikes was created in June 2017 by Bruno Cuesta and counts 8 members such as Victor Cardenas and Alejandro Paez, Andalusian mountain bike and road bike rising stars.

If you want to know more about their exploits, don’t hesitate to follow them on Strava. We are really proud of our guys!
