Contact a Jobs moderator... Jan 20, 2007

Hi Rad,
I moved your posting to the Job Systems forum.

Please contact a Jobs moderator (one at a time), quoting the URL of the job. We'll look into it.

Best regards,

Hi Jan 20, 2007

The answer is very simple: "Spanish" remained in the job posting form since last job posting, and nobody (neither the outsourcer nor a moderator) noticed this.

In case you would see something like this in the future, please use the link "Contact jobs moderators if there is a problem with this job posting", it is visible at the bottom of each job.

Thank you and have a great weekend,

I have noticed this too for ES > EN Jan 20, 2007

Hi Rad,
I have also noticed this a couple of times for ES > EN. I also wondered why this was the case.

Especially when it is one where you have to bid and cannot because you don't have the correct native language.

Good to know that it is that the language was already set in. Perhaps the system should be a such that you have to enter the native language. That it is not automatically therer by default left over from the previous one.
