Technical information

We create our own web pages using clean manual HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

We test our website with the most current versions of Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer. In our experience, almost everything looks reasonably OK on other browsers such as Opera and Safari. Minor formatting inconsistencies are, however, unavoidable. We have acquiesced to these limitations in order to be able to offer an up-to-date and informative website at reasonable cost and almost exclusively with in-house resources.
Our server does not execute any code detrimental to your system.

History

Version 1.x: We have had a web site since 1995, when this became technically and commercially feasible for small businesses and individuals in Germany. We had initially offered a few pages on Compuserve.

Version 2.x: In early 1996, we reserved our own domain name, rented space on a server in Southern Germany, and created our first fully fledged web site. In mid-1996, we moved our web site to a server in the U.S.

Version 3.x: Our web pages were completely redesigned and, in part, rewritten in September of 1997.

Version 4.x: We learned a lot! In August 1999, we streamlined and completely updated our web site. Using cascading style sheets and frames greatly simplified maintenance, and loading speeds were improved. (We still write all HTML, CSS, and JavaScript manually, although we use Microsoft Expression Web as a development environment.)

Version 5.x: In 2002, our site was further streamlined and revised for the new CI. We also moved our main website to a different provider (in Germany again this time) offering more options and better service. 

Version 6.x: The new website for Triacom Dental was rolled out in the winter of 2005/2006. It features many new and streamlined options and a fresher and leaner look thanks to the increased use of JavaScript. The new design has also been applied to www.triacom.com — in fact, technically speaking the two are one and the same site, with a clever “switched” concept ensuring that the reader gets to see just those pages he or she might be interested in. In 2011 we moved to a more powerful and customer-friendly hosting service, Domainfactory.

Version 7.x: In 2012 we added a Swedish version of our website and cautiously updated the page design.

Version 8.x: In 2015 we redesigned our website completely to make it accessible on mobile devices and to adapt it to changing viewing habits while retaining much-appreciated features.

Over the years, we have received a lot of positive feedback for our website, which was one of the first in the field of translation. The Translation Journal 8:4 (October, 2004) lists our website as the first entry under the heading of “Translators' Best Web Sites.”

We believe that the number of page impressions for our site has reached quite respectable proportions. After all, ever more websites are vying for attention all the time. The number of pageviews may be inflated, but our website is visited by approximately 8,000-12,000 people (IP adresses each month) besucht.
