Good afternoon all round,

http://www.proz.com/job/41984

Is it possible to add an indication of what time zone this applies to? Being in the CET zone, naturally I'm wondering why I can't see this ad at 12.48 pm CET. I'm not sure where the ProZ server is, but even if I did, it would be useful if non-Plat users were told when to come back to check out this job offer.

Just a suggestion - would be great if it could be done.


Karin

GMT Aug 28, 2003

Just for info, the ProZ.com time is GMT, so currently one hour earlier than the UK and two hours earlier than Germany.

Agree that it would be useful for this to be pointed out though!

Question raised before... Aug 28, 2003

I have raised this question earlier, but was told that the FAQ indicates that all times are GMT (See http://www.proz.com/topic/12144).
I too think that it would be fairly simple to add "GMT", but who knows...

Is GMT different from UK's time?

UTC (GMT) does not have daylight saving time Aug 28, 2003

Hi Claudia,
Is GMT different from UK's time?

Currently yes, because the UK has BST (British Summer Time), which does not apply to UTC (Universal Time Coordinate, commonly known as GMT - Greenwich Mean Time).

Cheers, Ralf

GMT is used as a sidereal (astronomical) time and as such is bound by no political decisions.
