Dear staff and fellow prozians,

When a job posting includes translation in multiple languages/combinations, we still only see the total number of quotes made. I think it would be much more helpful if we could see the number of quotes given per individual language combination.

Just my 2 cents,
looking forward to your comments.

Best regards,
Erik

Very good suggestion - notified staff May 11, 2009

Hi Erik,

I consider this a very good suggestion well worth implementing, which is why I've just notified staff to this thread by way of a support ticket.

Best regards,
Steffen

Agree May 12, 2009

This would be very useful, I think.
And it should not be too hard to do either, since you have to specify your language pair when quoting, anyway.

So thanks, Erik, for bringing it up, and thanks, Steffen, for following up!

Best regards,
Margreet

Quotes information by language pair now available Jun 3, 2009

Hello Erik, Steffen & Margreet,

Thank you all for the suggestion!

Classic job postings in multiple languages show now the total of quotes received and the number of quotes received for each language pair in the Quotes received box at the bottom of the posting page.

Hope this helps!

Thanks again for your feedback.

Kind regards,

Lucia
