I have noticed that if someone makes available information about his/her rates such information is displayed in directory next to the name of such person. However in my opinion this information is meaningless as there is no information about the currency set in user's profile. In fact the only information provided this way is that a user makes his rates available in his/her profile and someone looking for a translator has to enter such profile - consequently as well the information in the directory could be plain Yes and No.

Two potential solutions are:

1) The easier one: display currency in the directory,
2) More productive and more difficult to implement as well: take into consideration exchange rates and display unified rates in currency chosen by person looking for a freelancer.

What do you think?

Nice idea Feb 27, 2008

Hello Stanislaw,

Sounds interesting. Let's start with the currency chosen by the profile owner. I will ask a developer to implement this.

Best regards,

Jared
