Hello everyone,

I have come across a problem of which I think the proz staff should be aware:

I was searching the directory today (for English - Romanian translators based in the UK, if that helps at all). I must say, I was mildly annoyed by the fact that the search results listed ALL English-Romanian translators irrespective of their country of residence.

Would it be possible to make the various filters work? Otherwise it is pointless having them on the search page. I am sure the system works the same in any other language combination.

I'd like to think what other people think, too.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend, everyone

I checked the Directory for English-Polish translators living in Poland and I too got a list of translators living in all countries

Did you go to step 3 or stopped at step 2? Mar 11, 2006

Hi,
Are you sure that you are talking about the list which shows under Step 3: Results? At Step 2 you need to select specialisation field (and below that, indeed, there is a list of all translators in the given pair), after selecting specialisation you receive a list of those who meet all your criteria, including country of residence. E.g. there are 51 translators of English to Romanian, living in UK and doing Tech/Eng while in Romania there are 711 of them.

In short: you need to specify field of specialisation first.

HTH,
Magda
