Welcome to ProZ May 30, 2007

Eric Steven Raymond wrote an excellent article on asking questions that can be found here:
(may contain some offensive language)

Now, granted, this article is to advise people how to ask technical questions of hackers, but I believe the same principles apply here.


As Magda says, there are a lot of previous posts on this subject. If, after you've looked at them, you have some specific questions I'm sure people here would be happy to help.

Best of luck!

Love your work May 30, 2007

Hello. First, love your work. Second, you have to like people especially when interpreting. Third, have a LOT OF patience. Fourth, try always to do today and not postpone to tomorrow. Fifth, be impartial.
I hope this helps a little.

Best of luck.
