I've just noticed that the rates statistics engine seems to be using a 1:1 exchange rate beween US dollars and Euros (for example, the mean rate for English > Spanish reads '0.09 USD (0.09 EUR)'. In fact, the exchange right now is something like 1.0 EUR = 1.3 USD, so the statistics calculated that way can be pretty offmark not to say misleading.
Could one of the site's programmers please look into that? TIA

Working on a comprehensive currency exchange system for use within site functions Feb 18, 2007

Hi there Ana!

We have plans to implement a comprehensive currency exchange system throughout the site that would be used throughout the jobs system and payment system in the near future.

So please bear with us in the meantime while we working on getting a currency exchange system up and out the door!

Thanks for the suggestion/bug report, and best regards,
Justin
