Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could recommend any \"similar\" sites or mailing lists where translators can post queries. I heard that the Compuserve forum was now open to everyone, but have never been able to access it. I have occasionally used the forum at Leo.org for German queries, which can be helpful for more general queries.

I often find that I have a sentence I\'m not totally happy with, and I\'d like a second opinion on my suggestion - does anyone know of anywhere on the web where translators can post e.g. a phrase and their proposed translation for confirmation/help from other professionals?

I have to say, I can\'t imagine a more comprehensive or supportive system than the one here at ProZ, but I am interested in a site where you can run ideas for longer phrases/sentences past each other.

Thanks in advance,

Helen

Welcome Feb 5, 2003

Just have a look at the KudoZ pages (here at ProZ.com) and marvel!

>>I heard that the Compuserve forum was now open to everyone, but have never been able to access it., hit \"Forums\", then register a screen name (free). You need cookies and Java/JavaScript (I can never remember which) enabled. Then select the Foreign Language and Education Forum (FLEFO).



No KudoZ to go for, just very knowledgeable and helpful people.

thanks Feb 6, 2003

Thanks to both of you. I have been using KudoZ, but just was wondering if there was something similar for longer sentences when I\'m looking for confirmation a phrase sounds ok, rather than help with terminology.

I will try compuserve again!!
