Hello.

I have a BS degree in finance and would like to put it in my ProZ.com profile, but I can't seem to find the right place. Neither the translation education nor the credentials sections seem to be correct for what I have.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks,
Elliot

Put it down below (About Me) where you can fill in as much as you want, that it where I put mine. Most of us do not have translation-related degrees since they are not readily available in many places.

Elliot,
I think your degree is definitely a credential in the sense that it gives you a degree of knowledge and expertise in that field, which you add to your translating knowledge. Not all credentials are DIRECTLY related to the translation activity per se.

Thanks for the input Dec 20, 2006

I'll take it all into account. BTW, I did inform ProZ.com staff on this issue throught a support ticket, telling them I believed a separate field should be available for these cases.

Take care,
Elliot
