Although I translate officially only from Portuguese to English, I am interested in checking out other language pairs from time to time. So far the only way I seem to do anything similar to this is by clicking on "all pairs," which really isn't what I want. Also, when I click on "all pairs," the list is very short and there seems to be no way to look at the rest of it.

What I really want to know is how to change my language pair temporarily so that I can check out what's happening with other pairs. I looked around on the site, but couldn't find the answer. Can anyone help?

Hi Amy,

You don't need to add pairs temporarily. You can follow the Kudoz in as many languages as you want by adding them as an interest language (as opposed to working language) in your profile. To do this, go to your profile and click the "Edit languages" link right under the small box that shows your "Working languages" (upper left, under your picture). In the new page that opens, you can add whatever language you want and set it accordingly choosing "Hide from profile / Show in profile" to the right.

Note that interest languages you added will be visible only to you and you'll see the Kudoz questions in those pairs once you click the Kudoz page.

Hope this helps...

Özden
