UI Translation Resource

Hi All --

Can anyone recommend an agency or online service to translate user

interaction designing and supporting that my boss wants me to take up some
task flows as exercize to start off. But i do not acquire any sort of
training or experience in Interaction design.

This study was helpful to me in similar circumstances:

Hi all,

Do you know some "big" numbers on usability?

I'm looking for generic statements (with references) like these
fictional ones: "50 000 people died over the past decade due to poor
usability in medical equipment" or "90% of fatal aircraft accidents
are caused by inadequate design" or "long-term company success

Bill Moggridge says IxD is over. ; -) (not really, but its nice and provocative)

Tim McCoy takes on the post here:

Jamin Hedeman had a first post on the quote here:
