Hi all,

The contests we did these past months were great fun, and gave many of you the chance to show your incredible talents. We' ll surely have more writing contests.

Now, what about making a translation contest for students with professional translators voting for the winners? We could also have professionals giving feedback on your translations.

Would you go for it?

Great guyZ! Jan 9, 2008

Hi all!

Well, it's great to see the response on this proposal!

The topic of the contest will be "Initiation" and will be providing a source text in English in the next days, so that you can start working on your translations!

If you want to propose a source text in a language other than English you may contact me at soledad at proz dot com.

This is going to be so much fun!

Warm regards,

Sole
