Tools, ideas, inspiration

I am happy to share my “tool belt” with you. Some of these are for translators, some for web designers, others are for freelancers in general. I use all of them in my own projects and for my business.

WP Feedback*

I met the creator of WP Feedback at the #WCEU in Berlin in June 2019. His plugin totally blew my mind and I had to get the unlimited license on the spot. I am all for streamlining and simplifying processes and making things easy for my clients. But you can learn more about what WP Feedback does on their website. Just this much, from their website:

Allow your clients to visually submit feedback and requests directly on their own website, while keeping it all in one place.
Saving you and your clients countless hours by getting straight to the point and getting things done!”

About Affiliate links

Affiliate links lead to personalized link that enables the target webpage to know how you got there. And they will know that I showed some love by recommending them. In turn, I’ll receive a small commission. You will not be charged more when purchasing through my links.
