Dear members,

The fifth ProZ.com translation contest is underway!

This time all source texts are based on the common theme Travel.

The source texts in English and Spanish have been selected and
you are all invited to submit your entries.

More source texts in other languages will be added soon.
To submit your entry go to the “future contests page”
http://www.proz.com/contests . The deadline of the submission
phase is 26 November 15 GMT.

I know many of you have participated in the past contest, made it to the finals and we also had our student winners, of course. So, I hope to see new faces out there having fun and taking a shot at being the next winner of the ProZ.com translation contest!

Kind regards to all,

Sole.

I'm tempted... Nov 8, 2007

Mmh, I could give it a try with the English text... but I really don't have much time lately, I already have so many translations for university to catch up on!
I'll take a look and see how long the source text is, I'll let you know!

Bye, guys!

striving for perfection Nov 12, 2007

I have the text alredy translated but I haven't submitted it yet. I feel like there is always something I could change and I don't want to submit it until I'm sure it's perfect.

It has, of course, some harder moments but I think it's not so bad after all. Surprisingly, the fragment I thought would be very easy gives me a real headache. It just doesn't sound right and I've rephrased it like thousand times

You still have time! Nov 25, 2007

Hey Karol I saw you submitted your translation!
Good way to go there taking your shot at the contest with all the pros!

You have like one day and some more hours to submit your entry. So, there's plenty of time to get some real translation experience and have fun!

Hope we also have some student winners in this contest too.

Great Sunday!

Translation Contest Qualification Round started! Nov 27, 2007

It's great to hear that Annalisa!
Guess, we are all anxious to see the outcome of the voting phase that has just started!

In this contest voting is open to all members and to the users who have been registered on the site for at least 1 month and who list the language pair of the entry they are voting for among the working or interest pairs in their profile. You will have three choices available to decide if a given entry has a chance to win or not: [Yes, it may be the best] [No, others are clearly better] [ I am not sure/ Decline to vote]

Please remember that from this contest on, if you vote negatively for an entry which then turns out to be a winning entry, you will not be able to vote in the qualification round of future contests. You will, however, be able to vote in the final round of each contest.
Read more about this here: http://www.proz.com/?sp=contests&sp_mode=faqs#contest_rules

You can cancel your vote and vote again only if the entry is still pending and subject to vote. You will be notified when your vote is a deciding vote and either qualifies an entry or removes it from the contest.

Also note that though submission phase for language pairs with at least seven entries is over, but submissions are still being accepted for pairs with 6 or fewer entries so if you work on any of those pairs please make your entry!


You can make your choices here http://www.proz.com/contests .
So go and vote for your favourite translation!

Kind regards to all,

Sole.
