(3) Feature in focus: the "My directory ranking" tool
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The ProZ.com directory of translators and interpreters is used by outsourcers to find professionals. The directory and direct contact via profiles are the channels through which the majority of client contact occurs on ProZ.com. Ranking high in the directory in your language pairs and areas of expertise is key in facilitating this contact.

The "My directory ranking" tool shows you where you are currently positioned in the directory in your language pairs and fields of specialization. It will also give you pointers on how to boost your ranking.
