Gerbiami kolegos,

mestelėjau akį į du paskutinius klausimus ('virti' ir 'aštuntą valandą ryto'), ir nustebau pamačiusi, kad jie priskirti Pro kategorijai. Tikiuosi, labai neįžeidžiau nei klausiančiojo/iosios, nei atsakiusiųjų, bet paverčiau tuos klausimėlius į Easy.
Neatsimenu dabar, kiek reikia turėti taškų, kad būtų galima tai daryti, bet manau, kad mūsų tarpe yra pakankamai vertėjų, galinčių paspausti mygtuką 'Easy', pamačius, kad klausimas tikrai netinka Pro kategorijai.

Sėkmės!

Diana

Easy or pro? Mar 16, 2004

Hello Diana

Apologies if I have misunderstood your posting, but my grasp of Lithuanian is very basic! From what I can tell, you have questioned the reasoning behind posting v. simple words (such as 'to cook') under 'pro'. I guess the only way round this would be for the proz.com site owners to add a 'middle' category.

At the moment all we have is 'pro' (defined as a ' question for professional translators or specialist' and 'easy' ('a question for language learners'). IMHO, two extremes, with no middle ground, which can end up wasting other people's time.
