"Translation parameters are factors relevant to translation projects. A structured set of 21 parameters has been developed to aid in describing and organizing a translation project. Each of these parameters should be given a value, called a specification, before the production phase of a translation project begins"
 
Parameter Categories
For convenience, the parameters are organized into four main categories, with two subcategories:
 
Linguistic [1-13]: Parameters that describe the translation source and product. This category is further split into two groups:
Source content [1-5]: Parameters that describe the source content.
Target content [6-13]: Parameters that describe the target content.
Production tasks [14-15]: Parameters that detail the production aspects of the project.
Environment [16-18]: Parameters that describe where and with what tools the translation will take place.
Relationships [19-21]: Parameters that enumerate deadlines, delivery, compensation, and other aspects of the project.

Could you give up complaining for a whole month? That's the crux of this interesting piece by Jessica Hullinger over at Fast Company. Hullinger explores the reasons why humans are so predisposed to griping and why, despite these predispositions, we should all try to complain less. As for no complaining for a month, that was the goal for people enrolled in the Complaint Restraint project.
 
Over the generations, Canadians have kept their official languages and culture alive and well. English and French are at the heart of our identity and values. Ensuring their vitality is essential and depends on building strong and vibrant communities. Making services available in both official languages allows official-language minority communities to flourish.

Benefits of a High-Fat Diet
 
When it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle, there are hundreds of tips, tricks, and diets that claim to 'help you lose 10 pounds in 10 days' or 'make you burn fat twice as fast'. They all pose different theories, but one in particular has gained serious momentum over the past few years - The high fat, low sugar approach. Here are some of the top benefits of incorporating a lifestyle of FAT. 
 
Reduce Your Appetite
When we eat sugar, we have a quick spike in Insulin that gives us a short term energy boost, followed by a crash. Fat is a more consistent, long-term energy source. When we eat high fat, our body produces Ketones - an energy source that lasts much longer than the quick spike you get from sugar. 
 
Increase Weight Loss
Fat satiates you much quicker than sugar. It keeps you feeling satisfied for longer because of its caloric density. This prevents over eating because you don't experience nearly as many cravings as you do on a traditional high sugar diet. 
 
Increase Energy
When our bodies rely on sugar for energy, we have fast bursts followed by a crash. When we eat high fat, our bodies produce ketones - a long-term energy source that produces more sustained energy without the crash. This will keep you feeling dips throughout the day and have you feeling great. 
 
Boost Mental Focus & Cognition
Having healthy fats is one of the best ways to boost mental focus and increase cognition. The majority of your brain is made up of fat which means it needs good fats to function at an optimal level. 
 
Having more fat optimizes our energy, creates better focus and makes us feel great. Curb your cravings and drop pounds instantly by incorporating a lifestyle of FAT!
