Who are we?
Actually, "we" is really "me" for now. I'm a professional software developer from Toronto, Canada. I've been programming on Microsoft platforms for more than 25 years. Most of that time has been spent in the C/C++ coding trenches where I've contracted for many companies both large and small. My experience cuts a wide swath of Microsoft technology having done extensive work in many core areas of Windows. Of course being an experienced C/C++ developer means I've also spent more hours coding in the WinAPI than some would consider sane. I only recently stepped into the .NET arena to code TranSolution in C#. The idea for a program like TranSolution actually surfaced back in 2005. I was winding down a long-term contract for a well-known Fortune 500 company and it was during this time that the need for a translation package became clear. When it finally came time to translate the application I was working on into six languages, it didn't take long to realize what an ordeal the process can be. The need for a package like TranSolution seemed obvious but I couldn't find anything like it on the market. Other translation packages I looked at just weren't making the job easy enough in spite of all the claims. I tried to design TranSolution to meet these shortcomings and while I look forward to improving it over time, I think most programmers and translators alike will already find it a pleasant and pain-free experience.
