I was wondering if anyone has experience yet with the mentoring program and, if so, what kind of experience you have had with it to date.

Have you noticed any benefits, or any disadvantages, that have not been mentioned to date when the program was conceived? Are there any further issues that should be addressed? Is ProZ.com's official involvement in the program adequate, or is everything left, in the end, to the mentors and mentees?

I would particularly be interested to hear from mentors who have become involved, but also mentees.

Could you please clarify? Feb 18, 2008

Hi Astrid,

I think I´m a bit lost here, as I have no idea which mentoring program you are referring to. Can you let me know, please?. I´m interested too.

Many thanks

Hi Elena,

You will get the information here.

I am participating in the program together with a recent graduate and wondered who else was taking part in the program so far, and whether we could collect experiences, which would no doubt assist Soledad, who is in charge of the program, in developing the program further.

I already can see a few possible developments, and a number of things which could be done to fine-tune it, but I was fishing to find the other people participating in the scheme first.

Astrid

P.S. The idea was initiated by the ProZ.com student community, who are keen to have such a scheme, to create opportunities.

Many thanks indeed Feb 18, 2008

It really sounds like an interesting opportunity for both experienced and novice translators.
