Hello everyone,
Since I last updated my Proz profile in a long time, I am looking to update it - probably nothing too big, just some minor changes.
However, I have never asked anyone about their thoughts about the profile or if there is something I should improve there.
I am thinking in mentioning my positions in some of my KudoZ listings, as well as thinking in a way to give an approximate number of words I have already translated (which perhaps will not be as much other translators with more years of experience).

Thank you very much,
I am looking forward to hear your feedback.

In general I think your profile is quite good already, and certainly better organised than mine. I might make a couple of minor changes to the Professional keys, such as:

- providing a fast service;

- good professional organization;

- error-free writing;

- being productive;

- an eye for detail;

- being open to different projects and limitations;

- always looking to learn;

- efficient time management.

Good luck!

Only a few remarks Nov 3, 2011

Hi Ricardo,

I have a few remarks:

1. If you cannot provide a certain contact information, then why bother listing this with "n/a"?

2. Your average response time is -2 hours? Amazing!

3. If your maximum response time is really so long, I wouldn't mention this.

Of course, this is only my humble opinion after a cursory glance...

Thank you very much Nov 3, 2011

Thank you very much, neilmac and Marina. In fact, those professional keys were too long and could have been shortened, as well as there were some pointless information in the contact section as it was less confident on how to do it.

I will work on those parts as well as change others, thank you once again.
