Hello,

The "Blueboard" is a great tool!
Basically, I have two questions:

1. Is it possible to generate a list of all agencies displaying one agency per record? If not, is this product feature planned for future versions?

2. Does the "Blueboard" contain agencies AND corporate (direct) customers or just agencies?

Many thanks in advance, Aniello

Any kind of outsourcers.
I can't answer to your first question.

I'm moving your thread to "Jobs systems".

Marketing list? Mar 3, 2004

Ciao Aniello,
If I understand your question correctly, you're looking for a list of agencies that one could use for marketing purposes, for instance?

That isn't possible, and AFAIK nothing's planned along these lines.

Or did I misunderstand you?

Best, Ralf

rating in name of a fellow translator? Mar 3, 2004

I take the opportunity to add another question:
Can I rate an Agency following a request from a fellow translator (who is not a Proz member) who still is waiting to be paid ?

Well, my first question was stupid, please, ignore it. But a list for marketing/mailing purposes would be fine!

Ciao, Aniello:-)

Dear Mafalda,
please read the Blue Board rules and FAQ
http://www.proz.com/?sp=agency_list&viewPage=faq
from which I copy the following:


2. What are the conditions for entering a client review?

You may only enter reviews for clients with whom you have worked on a project or to whom you delivered a test translation. You may not enter reviews solely on the basis of negotations or other preliminary interactions.

If you have worked on a project with a client but were late or otherwise negligent in delivering work, you may not enter a review for that client.


Your friend could easily join the site and rate any business already listed on the Blue Board, or enter new businesses and rate them according to his/her personal experience with them.

Gianfranco

I'm afraid not - have a look at the BB FAQ:
You may only enter reviews for clients with whom you have worked on a project or to whom you delivered a test translation. You may not enter reviews solely on the basis of negotations or other preliminary interactions.


But your colleague might want to register as a member, and enter a rating.

Best regards, Ralf

PS Yo, Gianfranco - now that's simultaneous thinking!

Add Agency Mar 3, 2004

Hallo Michael,
I tried to rate two new outsourcers but I didn't get it, how to do it ?


- Go to Jobs - Blue Board.
- Click on Add Agency.
- First, search the list, then use the "Add Agency" link underneath.

We appreciate if you enter as many details as possible - this will not only save us some work, but will also help to clearly identify the entity.

HTH, Ralf
