Oh, I can't apply... Most of the above languages are not my mother tongue. Sigh...

Check the contact method Oct 3, 2011

Hi Eduardo,

I see that you are in fact eligible to respond to the job in question, since your native language is one of the target languages listed in the job. Note that the contact method is direct email, though (you should see the address further down on the page under "Contact method"), so you won't see a "Quote" button on this one.

Jared

Jared, I don't think Eduardo was very worried about his eligibility for the job offer because he posted this as off-topicicon_wink.gif

As a rule Oct 3, 2011

I tend not to reply to any badly drafted ads on proz. It's their loss.
