Dear all,

My name is Felipe Gútiez and I have published several posts in ProZ about several ideas:
a cooperative of translators
a global memory
a repository of translators tools/ressources for easy use in a website

A lot of very useful critics and new proposals have been made. I thank very much all the people who have participated.

Here some of the threads for info:

http://www.proz.com/forum/business_issues/115481-we_need_a_tool_and_a_system:_proposal_to_create_a_cooperative_of_freelance_translators.html

http://www.proz.com/forum/cat_tools_technical_help/113560-the_global_tm_i_want.html

http://www.proz.com/forum/prozcom:_translator_coop/114854-a_virtual_cooperative.html


As from the 1st of November I will be again a freelance translator. I would like to take some of my time to give a chance to make these and other ideas reality.

I would be interested in knowing who is interested in participating and how.
Alternatively, you can also write to me at:

gutiez@hotmail.com

I hope to very soon publish a website to exchange opinions about this project and start the necessary arrangements.


If you are not interested, but you would like to say why not, you can follow this other thread

A statement is missing as to what you propose Oct 1, 2008

Felipe, can you tell us what are you proposing exactly, so that we can decide whether it is interesting or not? Please, be specific. Thank you!

my interest Oct 1, 2008

I'm interested in a global memory or just a reciprocal TM or perhaps glossary exchange.
Of course all my work involves Hungarian so I may be better off taking that up with Hungarian colleagues separately.

I'm not reading the 17-page thread but if you put up a summary of what you're envisioning on a website I'll be sure to take a look. How will it be different/better than the VLTM, will it be cross-platform (perhaps just a tmx collection), single platform (which) or a platform of its own available online etc.

Best of luck, we need the enterprising types in here.

Not a good idea... Oct 1, 2008

...to publish your e-mail address so openly: you'll only get spammed!!

P.S. What exactly are you proposing this time (sigh)?

Hello Jared Oct 1, 2008

I just want to know who is interested and give people a platform to express themselves. As alternative I have given my email address.
I think it is a new topic but if you deem it necessary, please close the thread.
Internet is SO BIG, there are plenty of space somewhere else.

Have a good time

THANK YOU!!!!!!! Oct 1, 2008

JARED, THANK YOU!!!!!!! People have had tons of chances to get in touch with Felipe if they were at all interested.

All of us are used to contacting each other via the Proz email in the profiles. No other email is needed. The people who have contacted Felipe this way are the ones who are interested.

Hi Henry, thank you for making some of the ideas reality Oct 2, 2008

http://www.proz.com/pro-tag/info


I wish much success to the Certified ProZ program.

I very much hope that the idea of the voting system and the availability of the accounting system will be too taken on bord.

By the way, can you document when you had the idea of the certified ProZ in the way it is?
I can document the ideas in the fora.... (with date and hour).

Question: who has the copyright or the patent?

(shamelessly cut into Jared's quote)

Please Felipe, if you even don't listen to an employee of this site, what the heck are you trying to do?
I think plenty of people have posted their opinion on this thread, and I think that most people on this forum are not interested (as stated in Tomás's earlier thread). Then why do you keep asking?

I'm asking this aswell; if people are interested let them email you privately, but please stop opening random threads about a new idea of you because it's getting a bit old.

With regards,

Jared, do you agree?

Have a nice time

Felipe, then surely all other posts in this thread would also need to be there, which will make it in essence a long monologue thread with only your posts. Then surely you'd be better off opening a website or a blog?

So please do not tell me where I should or should not post, I don't like to be told what to do by someone else, not when it's unreasonable anyway

So basically what you are saying is that in general if people buy Nikes (because of the good quality, nice price, leather, because you can play good sports with it) they will also buy (without giving it a second thought) the cheap 5 Euro (plastic that make your feet sweat, bad quality, will break after three jogging sessions, will give you blisters, etc)?

Hi Nicolette Oct 2, 2008

In your quotation you missed the most important part:

"you are intelligent people, I suppose..."
