Yesterday, two colleagues complained about a Kudoz question that asked for comments on the asker's translation. The asker posted this question because he/she was not sure of the source sentence. I checked the Kudoz rules and found that such questions are allowed but only in Chinese-Chinese Kudoz.
"Askers can also post sentences to ask for help in understanding a meaning, word order or a grammatical issue, but this should be done in the corresponding monolingual language pair."http://www.proz.com/faq/kudoz#What_is_term_help
I realised, however, that people are not very active in Chinese-Chinese Kudoz. If you look at the recent Chinese-Chinese questions, most of them only have one or two answers. I think this might be because many of us do not have Chinese-Chinese Kudoz in our settings. If you would like to add Chinese-Chinese Kudoz in your settings, please follow these steps:
1. Go to the My Proz.com
tab on the main page.
2. Click on My Settings
3. Click on Languages
4. Under Add a New Language Pair
, select Chinese>Chinese.
5. Untick Show this language pair in my profile
if you do not want 'Chinese'
to show in your profile.
I am sure we will get more help when more people are checking Chinese-Chinese Kudoz questions.
