You're welcome. I don't know how many more of these I'm going to answer though, given the recent debacle with 'pouvoir d'evocation'. It's just looking more and more like a lost cause, trying to bring some Askers up to speed (not you) :)

Notes to answerer
Asker: re: société de rattachement/pouvoir d'évocation:
you say it's "looking like a lost cause"… I know what you mean and I confess I was quickly discouraged 2 or 3 years ago from spending time researching and trying to answer questions. All I can say, regarding pouvoir d'évocation, is that I always make a point of looking at the entire discussion, rather than just the one chosen, often wrongly, by the questioner. But of course if you care about Kudoz points this may well discourage you from continuing. I've never really understood what the value of Kudoz points is! Is it something about drumming up clients? Improving rates? I once asked a profilic answerer why he answered these Proz questions, and he explained that it was essentially a purely altruistic activity … he's (semi?) retired, I think… and it is nice that people with years of expert experience in a given field should pass on their knowledge in this way.
