Can you filter out translators with too many areas of expertise?

When looking for translators by specifying an area of expertise on the proz.com data base, is there a way of filtering out translators who have ticked ALL areas as their areas of expertise? We\'re only really interested in ones who genuinely specialise in our area (bus/financial).

and you have to bear in mind that a lot have checked/ticked all the categories so that they receive notification of all the questions posted and not because this is really their area of expertise. The only way is to read the information in the profiles (at the moment) and hope it is correct.
