Nancy, perhaps you are thinking of LingoSystems' "Guide to Translation and Localization", which can be found on their website:

I cannot recommend this award-winning book highly enough. Even better, the PDF is free.

Two questions about writing for translation:

1. I once knew of a PDF prepared by, I dunno, a translation company maybe, that was all about how to write with translation in mind. It was book-length and was highly recommended (at an STC meeting, Boston chapter, a few years ago). Does anyone know of it, and, if so, can you send me a link to it, assuming it is still available?
