Dear members,

Now you can track job postings matching your preferences in your RSS feed reader. Just click the orange button at http://www.proz.com/translation-jobs to get started (your feed will be based on your advanced search settings there). To see the complete job description and to quote, you will need to visit the full job page using the link in the feed item.

The feed contains the basic information about the job, including the link to the job, the job title and short description, and the job requirements (including language pairs and field of expertise). The feed updates once every five minutes.

You will notice that the URL for the feed contains your entity_id and a unique token that allows you to view job summaries that match your preferences without logging in. You cannot use this token to log in or to access any part of the site. Additionally, the token and feed does not contain any personally identifiable information about the subscriber.

You can subscribe using any news reader that you would like. If you encounter any encoding issues or have questions, comments or concerns, please contact site staff via a support request.

If you're interested in RSS feeds for public forums, see http://www.proz.com/topic/129628

KudoZ RSS feeds are also being evaluated.

Best regards,
Jon Peck

Kudoz, please! Mar 9, 2009

I think this would be even more useful for Kudoz (i.e. RSS feed adapted to personal settings).

Email notifications can be somewhat problematic (especially if you don't turn them off when you are away!), so is remembering to visit the page. RSS is convenient enough to "play" Kudoz from time to time, without being too "pushy"...

Targeted RSS makes so much sense and keeps the poor mail box lighter.

Apart from that, it's one 'klick' less when I'm online and something comes through comes through because - if I'm there - the little popup tells me at a glance whether I am interested or not.

I opted out of Kudoz mail notification, but this possibility could be useful to all.

Cheers
Chris

My RSS jobs feed doesn't work well Jun 23, 2009

Hi everyone,

I, too, found it very much better than email notifcations, but it hasn't been updated since hours ago. The last tow jobs were posted at 00:45 and 03:13 but the feed is not yet updated!

Could anyone help?

Thank you all,
Hossein

RSS Feed Failing to Load (Mozilla) Aug 18, 2009

Hello,

Is anyone familiar with the "RSS Feed Failed to Load" error message for the jobs page? I find my feed works really well for a while and then dies in a few days after showing an error like this. I use the latest version of Mozilla. My theory is that the list in the drop down menu gets too long, but then again, I am not sure there is really a way to control that. Anyway, if anyone has had a similar problem, I would love to hear from you about how you solved it. Right now if I rely on the RSS I inevitably end up missing jobs at some point.

Thanks,
Scott

Entitling the RSS feed posts Feb 23, 2010

Hello everyone,

First of all, thank you to the ProZ team for the effort in making things easier and adding new features.

I hope the following is a useful suggestion.

On my feed folder in Mozilla Firefox, I loose too much info on coming posts because most of the title is "Proz.com classic job", whereas my interest is to have as much of the title as possible, so that I can open the most suitabe jobs.

If you use that for SEO reasons, you could just leave it at the end.

Does it make sense?
Does anyone else have a similar issue?
Is this the right place for this suggestion?

Best regards!

Pedro

This is a great idea, but I agree with Pedro - that the Proz.com classic job should be removed from the feed title. The feed itself already identifies what it is, so the individual items don't need to be identified.

I just woke up and found it arranged.
That was fast, efficient and client/service-oriented.

Look like Inoreader.com can't take this feed, even after i put login and password.
Inoreader note in adding subscription window: "Only Basic HTTP Authentication is supported."
Maybe that will give a clue.

Issue should now be resolved Oct 13, 2015

Hello RiantHoff,

Thanks for reporting this. The problem with the job RSS feed has now been resolved. I have tested this with my own Feedly and everything appears to be working as it should.

I hope this helps but please let me know how everything goes.

Best regards,

Maria
