Dear Proznians,

I would like to know if it is allowed on ProZ to put an paragraph of a translation with the corresponding source and ask for an evaluation of its quality: bad - acceptable - good.

In the affirmative, on which forum knowing that it is a translation EN > macedonian?

On which forum ban I meet the translators from FYR Macedonia?

Thank you in advance.
Michel

Unnecessary Dec 7, 2006

Hi Michel,

Public rating of a translator's sample translation on his/her profile is not necessary. Let the potential clients themselves asses his/her translation competence privately.

Some answers Dec 7, 2006

1. Given that Macedonian was in former Yugoslavia and people there still speak the same language, perhaps with slight differences, you may meet macedonian colleagues in non-English fora like Serbian, or Bosnian, or Slovene ( I don't know right now which new republics are represented on that section, other than Bosnain of which I am sure).
2. I always supported translation samples as being the most effective criteria to chose a translator, but only few outsourcers, if at all do want to use them and I don't know why.
It is the product/service we are offering and we have to show it somehow. Price, native language, or platinum are not a value of our work and capacities.
You may put somewhere in your profile such samples for your specialisation fields.
I don't believe colleagues here would evaluate them, being it even only because you might be a competitor on the job market. Still outsourcers looking into your profile may be interested.

Good luck
