Can someone tell me how I find a particular translator by name with a view to contacting them? There used to be an obvious "search by name" function but now I can't find anything of that sort in the "translators and interpretors" directory. No doubt I'm missing something very obvious, but quite a long period of searchhing hasn't found what I'm looking for.

But I agree it seems kind of "hidden away", and perhaps a more prominent position (or integration with the directory search) would be more useful.

Thanks Mirko! Hi Armorel!

Moving less frequently used functions to a secondary box usually means a better navigation of a site.
Unfortunately, it represents an extra effort the first time you look for a feature that has been moved to a new place.

Regards,
Enrique

Thank you Sep 27, 2017

Thanks - I've got it now. It is indeed rather hidden, since logically it definitely ought to be under "translators and interpreters" (and as far as I'm concerned it isn't a "less frequently used function").

There are more efficient ways Sep 27, 2017

I find that search to be very poor. If you put the name of the person into a Google search, along with the term "ProZ", you're more likely to find what you're looking for.
