About - The UPDirectory analysing and documenting British Battles from the previous centuries Deutsches U-Boot-Museum Welcome… to the German Uboat-Museum, an institution highly regarded by visitors and international experts. It is composed mainly of the Uboat-Archive and a collection of Uboat exhibits. Started in 1947, the Uboat-Archive compiles all available information, photographs and personal notes by witnesses as well as historians of the history of German submarines, to evaluate those for objective historiography. In 1986 this compilation was reckognized officially as "Uboat Tradition Archive Foundation", using that name furtheron. It became a unique place for reunions of submarine veterans, but also a meeting point for many Uboat interests. Second pillar of the foundation is the collection of Uboat exhibits, where objects of all kinds from the history of underwater-operations are on display. In order to maintain and further expand this facility the "Association of Friends of the Uboat Tradition Archive ( FTU)" was founded in 1992.

The International Churchill Society - Naval-History.Net Statens Arkivers forside Forget Google Translate: 3 Ways to Get an Accurate, Quick Translation Bad translations. We’ve all seen them. We’ve all laughed at them. At their best, they’re quite funny. The more notorious examples have even spawned memes. But at their worst, they paint a picture of unprofessionalism and laziness. The problem is two-fold. Thankfully, there are services that offer affordable and accurate translations you can depend on. UnBabel Translation services usually require that you either compromise on cost, or on quality. It uses machine learning techniques — much like Google Translate does — to auto-translate, but then passes the computer-generated text to a human who proofreads and edits for accuracy and flow. Then select the original language, and the language you want to translate it to. You can also select the tone of the text. Before you click “Submit Order”, you’ll see a breakdown of how much it’ll cost you. Then, give your email and a few minutes later you’ll be sent your translation. If it adds up, click “approve”. Sorry, Eduardo. /r/Translator Gengo
