Thanks For All Sep 28, 2007

Hi All,

We are so delighted to win out the Arabic contest. In fact, it was a wealth of experience and we enjoyed it so much!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all voters, participants as well as those who have been behind the scenes i.e. event organizers and coordinators.

I just have one query; I think this is Proz fourth translation contest, not the third one as indicated on the winner's digital certificate we have received.

I would appreciate so much if Florencia could possibly check this matter since, I think, it is common among other winners.

Thanks a million

On behalf of BeLocalized team,

Muhammad Alatoon

stimulating and instructive Oct 3, 2007

Taking part in these contests has been enjoyable and I find evaluating the many different solutions instructive. In my opinion the best translations reflects not only a good knowledge of the source language but also the ability to leave one's own mark, so that the reader gets a glimse of the person behind the computer while reading his/her text, he "gets to know him/her" as if he was reading an original story. It is called style, I guess. I also think that the original texts inspire the translators in different ways, some like it more and some less. Well, enough thinking...
Thank you Florencia for your work!
