I have been deprived of the access to the Kudoz in the English-Chinese language pair in the past two years for no reason. I requested the Proz staff to help me but not effect by far. Is there any one can help me there?

Local problem Oct 21, 2009

Hi!
As far as I'm aware, KudoZ has been blocked in China since January of this year (I was in China at the time). I believe it was blocked by the censors of the Chinese government after a 'politically sensitive question' was inadvertedly posted on KudoZ by one of the members.
For more details, please feel free to contact me privately.
Kind regards,
Bea

When I was in China earlier this year, I wasn't able to access Kudoz either.

Only Kudoz blocked? Appears so, if not you wouldn´t be able to post this thread. In that case, it would indicate to me that the problem is local (which doesn´t surprise me)...Good luck in solving it!

It maybe in my case. The instant when I click on "Answer Question", the link to www.Proz.com would be lost. However, I posted no 'politically sensitive question' at all.

It seems I did not make it clearly in my question and you made it. Thank you, Blomguib!

It's really really bad for the translators in China, and harmful to our working rights by doing so.
