Hi again everybody

I was wondering ... if Palestine actually exists ... then how it comes that it's not listed in the countries list on Proz.com?

This is a call for Proz to list my country ... I picked Kuwait as I lived there for a long time, but - really not trying to sound aggressive - I'd prefer selecting Palestine instead ... I'm Palestinian and located in Palestine after all !!

I could have picked Israel you know, but - and again not trying to sound aggressive - I'm not an Israeli ... I'm not even allowed into Israeli territories!

This is a question I'm posting to ProZ staff ... any supporters?

P.S This isn't an OFF-TOPIC to me

Thank you Dina for pointing that out, I never noticed it before. I totally agree with you, Palestine should be among the list of countries on this site and all over the internet. I am not saying this because my family is originally from Palestine but because Palestine is a country recognised by the United Nations. Thanks again.

Agree 100% Sep 24, 2005

If the "Heard & McDonald Islands" (huh?) are listed on the countries list, then I believe Palestine should be too.

(By the way, according to the CIA Factbook, the "Heard & McDonald Islands" are "uninhabited, barren, sub-Antarctic islands [that] were transferred from the UK to Australia in 1947")!

Cheers

Nesrin

Hi Dina,
Thanks for noticing it. The list of countries, regions and languages in different parts of the site is not fully complete and from time to time omissions or errors are spoted and corrected.

Best,

Magda

ProZ.com uses ISO list of countries Sep 25, 2005

ProZ.com uses the ISO list of country codes. Since ProZ.com was developed in early 1999, our basic list is what was current with the ISO at the time. Having seen this post I researched the matter and found that Palestine was added by the ISO to their list of country codes in October 1999. I have therefore added Palestine to our list. Thanks for posting, Dina, maybe you'll be our first member listed in Palestine.

You're absolutely the BEST Henry

I already changed my country's name on ProZ.com to PALESTINE ... so guess I'm really the first member from Palestine now

Thanks a million

Dina, I am so glad you are now the first Proz member from the State of Palestine. My best wishes for your career... and remember, you are always welcome to visit your Greek friends - it's only a short distance, after all.:-)

Henry, thanks for this prompt amendment of the Country Lists!
