Is there a site like ProZ for translation-industry DTP?

I've worked in two different translation agencies over the last five years, and I've developed a set of bookmarks that covers a lot of ground. However, I haven't found a community site or public forum to talk specifically about being a (freelance) DTP pro in the translation industry. Most of my work is in complex scripts - Farsi/Persian, Amharic, Burmese, and the like. I've found many language-specific mailing lists that deal with relevant issues (the Farsi Unicode list, for example), and forums for discussing the tools we use, but I haven't found a group where I can find:

1) People who care about language (!), and
2) more than 1 msg/week.

Any pointers? Or do I have to start it myself?

TIA-
Joel

What do you really need to talk about? Jan 11, 2005

What's missing on Proz.com that would need a separate site. You find different fora here, also for dtp if I'm not mistaken. Or such could be installed easily.

Why not here? Jan 11, 2005

ProZ is about translation, and DTP for translation is within our scope.
You could for example start posting here: http://www.proz.com/forum/73. I'm sure here are a lot of people doing DTP and translating.

If you feel, we need an extra forum for DTP, please propose this to the site staff via support, but I think we can easily handle this within the existing structure.

Regards
Jerzy
