Hi all,

I\'m rather new on the site and didn\'t know it could happen. I mean, my Kudoz answer wasn\'t selected by the asker but it entered the glossary together with the selected one. Of course, I didn\'t get any points. I also think the other translator deserves the points but I just had no idea it was possible. I read the FAQs but didn\'t find anything of the sort. Probably it would be a good idea to include a word on that.

Anyway, thanks a lot for such a terrific and helpful site!

It usually happens Mar 4, 2003


Don\'t worry too much about that, the same thing has certainly happened to many of us. Sometimes an asker considers that more than one answer is acceptable and it is very difficult to decide what answer to choose. In that case the he or she has to chose the faster answer or the one that has got better references or the most appropiate for his or her translation. But even then, it wouldn\'t be fair for other translators to simply ignore the others answers; so that\'s why there are two or more answers entered into the glossary. That\'s the main point of KudoZ, not to give points to other translators but to make us help each other.

Have a great week

Glossary entries can be edited afterwards Mar 5, 2003

Hi Ceci,

You should also note that glossary entries can be (and are) changed afterwards, if necessary. Right now this can only be done by site moderators.

If you believe the wrong answer was chosen by the asker, contact the moderator for the language pair concerned - you will find the link at the end of each question, or in the list under \"Support\". There are two moderators for English>Spanish, BTW.

HTH - best regards, Ralf

Thanks for explaining, Ralph Mar 5, 2003

I\'ll keep that in mind. Anyway, this time I think the two terms that entered the glossary are correct.

Thank you!
