What, exactly, can be entered in the glossary on my profile page? Is it only for terms that I have been awarded points for?

Glossary entries Dec 15, 2004

Is it possible, then, to enter terms such as the following into the glossary on my profile page?


A term that I suggested in my kudoz answer, and that I am sure is correct, yet was not the one selected by the asker.

A term that was suggested by another answerer, whether it was awarded points or not.

A term that I suggested to a kudoz question that was never graded.

A term that I wish to make available to others in the glossary on my profile page, even though it has not been the subject of a kudoz question.

Thanks
Michele Fauble

Hi Michele!

Yes.

A term that was suggested by another answerer, whether it was awarded points or not.


Aldough possible, I am not sure it would be recommendable - I can envisage that it might raise an objection on the part of the answerer who suggested the translation (somehow I feel it is his/her effort).

A term that I suggested to a kudoz question that was never graded.


Yes.

A term that I wish to make available to others in the glossary on my profile page, even though it has not been the subject of a kudoz question.


Yes, absolutely.

BR,
Vesna

MODERATOR
Distinction between KOG & personal profile glossary Dec 15, 2004

1. KOG = KudoZ open glossary. This is the glossary for terms entered on **KudoZ** pages

Regarding terms that are the subject of a KudoZ inquiry: if you are not the asker or the selected answerer, you may still enter the selected term in the KOG, but also checking the box to add the term in your own glossary, when adding that term to the KOG, is frowned upon. If you run across a term that has already been added to the KOG that you know to be wrong, please contact one of the moderators for that language pair.

2. Personal glossary (the one on your profile). You may enter as many terms as you wish into your glossary *directly*, including terms that you supplied as answers to KudoZ. The one caveat: when entering a term in the KOG, if you weren't the selected KudoZ answerer, just don't use that link "adding" the term to your own glossary. All glossaries on ProZ.com are searchable, but only terms linked between profiles and KudoZ will appear in both "Search Glossaries" and the "KudoZ search."
