I would have a look at your site but cannot seem to get to it. I built and maintain my husbands site so maybe I could offer some opinion although I am not a professional web designer by trade.

The site is informative but does not really grab my attention or keep it. Instead of the paragraphs, I would use larger font and bullet points. I would use some color and also some photographs.

The internet is a VISUAL media. People want to see pictures, color, etc. and that will draw them in to reading the copy. At first glance, there is noting on your site that captures my attention and pulls me in to WANT to read the details.

Your home screen should be an overview of who you are, and what you do - Large Print, Bullet Points, Lots of color, movement, photos. Then, once you have their attention, they will search out the details.

Google "Translation Services" and see what your competition is doing.

You need to be much more transparent about who you are and what you're providing. What in your experience makes you qualified to determine who is a good translator? There are a lot of translators working on the market. Some are very good, some are terrible. Certification from all of the various agencies is absolutely no indication of quality, by the way.

I'm not convinced, to be honest. I use translators now and then for my business, and I find LinkedIn to be a pretty good resource for finding them.

Hello all, thank you very much for your input. I will take some time and visualize all that you have written here and turn it into action. It will take me a few weeks to put some of your advise into action but it will most definitely help in having a quality web page. Thank you all.

I think if u plan to have people find your site through search engine and online directories, then u would want to make it draw the viewer in with better visual attraction like one guy said. But if u are simply having a website to put on a business card or flyer then fancy graphics aren't critical. Better to be look neat and functioning than tacky and fancy. I like the fact that u made it very simple because people get overwhelmed with lots of useless info. I'd focus on convincing people that your service is dependable along with your special approach to translation because I'm sure there are a few people out there doing the same thing.
