Since January 11th, my inbox has been inundated with job notifications outside my language pair. For the record, it's not that my pair is also included as part of the jobs, some of those jobs have one one pair of languages.

Is it just me?

Hello Claudia,

Could you please submit a support request and provide a copy of at least two of the job notifications you should not have received? This will help support staff look into this further.

Many thanks in advance.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Regards,

Lucia

Not that I am inundated but every now and then I get job ads which definitely do not match my language pairs. One of the strangest ones was yesterday: Translation from Danish into Chinese! Wish I knew any of those languages...

I always thought that there were programming bugs, or that job posters do not specify well the languages or the addressees, so I never complained and just erase these offers when they get into my mailbox.

Still going on Feb 16, 2010

I submitted a support ticket but I'm still getting those jobs notifications. I really started all of a sudden, very abruptly. Just today, I've received 14 jobs notifications and only 5 of them are in my pair, and it's just 11:25 am.
