I often do Google searches of the Kudoz forum, and frequently end up on the Tamil, Thai, Russian, etc. version of Proz.com. It takes me a lot of effort to scroll all the way down the page and then find the box in the lower right-hand corner and switch the language. I usually end up going to the URL address and typing in "eng.proz.com" just so I know what all the text on the page means.

This should be a relatively quick fix using cookies.

Am I the only one with this problem?

Not a bad idea Feb 5, 2008

Although a quick fix is just to remove the language code from the address.


Edits: I'm removing my examples, as I seem to remember it's against Proz rules to link to a specific question. And also I see that Damian has also mentioned a similar fix.

Good point Feb 5, 2008

Hi Damian and Mikhail,

We will see the way how that could be implemented.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Kind regards,

Soledad

It's Google's fault Feb 5, 2008

The fault lies with Google for serving you the Tamil version of a page if the English version (or the version in your language) contains exactly the same information and page rank.
