I just quoted on a job and noticed, that I have to go to my profile, copy and paste the URL into the form in order to show the client my details.
The profile URL should be offered within the contact informations along with the phone number and the emai-address.

And of course the valuta unit for the rates should go with the translator in question instead of USD by default.

Regards
Heinrich

Not necessary Aug 2, 2006

Hello Heinrich

It's not necessary to paste your contact details.

In fact the outsourcer will see your name and passing the mouse over it, he will be able to go to your profile.

At the bottom of the quote form you have to select which contact details you want the outsourcer to be able to see.
It's very important to select the e-mail address (if you don't select it, it's invisible).
If the e-mail address isn't visible, the outsourcer would have to go to your profile and write to an unknown address, and wait for your answer. If there are many translators interested by the job, the outsourcer will not do that.

Good luck in your next quote

Claudia

html? Aug 3, 2006

When I post a job I get the quotes by email. My program does not display html-code, only text. So no linking to the profile of the translator is visible.
I still think the profile should be one contact detail selectable along with the phone numbers. Anyhow the job-system on Proz is inferior to the one of its main competitor.

Do you ask to be contacted via e-mail? Aug 3, 2006

When you ask to receive the quotes via the site you have several features that you don't have via e-mail.
If you look in the Outsourcer control center (Jobs menu) and then "my job posts". You'll see what I'm talking about (in case you don't know that yet).
That's why I prefer to require contact via the site than via e-mail.

If you have suggestions to make in order to improve the service, you should send a Support Request, I'm sure the programmers will have a look at them (I didn't say when)

Mostly email Aug 3, 2006

Very few outsourcers use the job system features, mostly they want to be contacted via email, which I prefer too.
