I know Company Blue Board concept is differ than An individual. But I want to know if someone is outsource and assign work ahead to translator. Can he make his own blue board entry as an outsource as companies make.

WWA? Aug 1, 2015

But I thought we already have the WWA entries don't we? Or did I not understand your query well?

Blue Board entries Aug 1, 2015

Since it is possible to have a Blue Board entry for an outsourcer who is not even a member of ProZ.com, I can't see any logical reason why one shouldn't be allowed for a translator who also sometimes outsources work — many existing BlueBoard entreis do indeed fall into that category.

However, I would imagine it would be only logical for them to insist that the entry be made by soemone other than the outsourcer themselves! Perhaps you could ask one of your regular service providers to make an entry for you?

As our colleague has said, you do of course also have the WWA on your profile — although that isn't specificaly intended for giving feedback about an outsourcer, there doesn't seem to be anything to stop its being used in that way.

Do just be aware, though, that while only positive entries are allowed on profile WWA, having an entry on the BlueBoard does equally expose you to the risk of unfavourable comments!
