Dear all,

Yesterday, two colleagues complained about a Kudoz question that asked for comments on the asker's translation. The asker posted this question because he/she was not sure of the source sentence. I checked the Kudoz rules and found that such questions are allowed but only in Chinese-Chinese Kudoz.

"Askers can also post sentences to ask for help in understanding a meaning, word order or a grammatical issue, but this should be done in the corresponding monolingual language pair."

I realised, however, that people are not very active in Chinese-Chinese Kudoz. If you look at the recent Chinese-Chinese questions, most of them only have one or two answers. I think this might be because many of us do not have Chinese-Chinese Kudoz in our settings. If you would like to add Chinese-Chinese Kudoz in your settings, please follow these steps:

1. Go to the My Proz.com tab on the main page.
2. Click on My Settings.
3. Click on Languages.
4. Under Add a New Language Pair, select Chinese>Chinese.
5. Untick Show this language pair in my profile if you do not want 'Chinese' to show in your profile.

I am sure we will get more help when more people are checking Chinese-Chinese Kudoz questions.

Denyce

As active as English-English Kudoz Sep 24, 2007

Yueyin,

You're welcome. I hope our Chinese-Chinese Kudoz will soon be as active as English-English Kudoz.

I once told a colleague to use Chinese-Chinese Kudoz but he didn't want to. He said he would not get as many responses as in Chinese-English Kudoz. I believe there will be more participation in Chinese-Chinese Kudoz if more people have it in their language settings.

最近Kudoz又有改變嗎﹖ Nov 10, 2007

我前幾天問了一個問題﹐沒有馬上打分﹐想等等看﹐而且記得一般會有郵件提醒應該打分關閉﹐這次沒有郵件提醒﹐我就差點兒忘了。當然還是提醒打分關閉前多給點時間最好﹐一周後可以提醒提醒﹐要不然不是不想打分關閉﹐而是忘了。
