Today, I was browsing the forum of this site, and I bumped into a banner ad - for Travelocity!

I find it normal to find banners on this site like any commercial site on the net. However, this being the "translators workplace", I don't really understand why there are ads on here that have nothing to do with translation. To those who feel like saying that translators travel - well, who doesn't? Doctors also travel, pregnant women travel and even pets travel these days. I don't consider this kind of advertising as language service specific...

Am I the only one who finds this weird? On the other hand, I'd like to see more diversity in the banner ads that have to do with language services. I always see SDL and Babylon, but not much else... There are tons of products for language professionals and ProZ could help us get those products at good prices, all the while they would be making their buck, too.

Travelocity ad turned off for members Mar 23, 2007

Thanks for your input. I have turned the travelocity ads off for ProZ.com members. You are correct in the ProZ.com members should only see translation related ads on the site.

Regards,

Drew MacFadyen
