Dear colleages,

I suggested a ProZ.com History and Overview information update a couple of months ago.
You can find it on the ProZ.com homepage:

Just go to the About menu,
then click on the About ProZ.com submenu and
select the Advertising tab

ProZ.com is:

* Leading portal in human translation.
* World's largest community of professional translators.
* Among the top 5000 sites on the web overall (ref: Alexa.com)
* Founded in 1999. 25 employees.
* 3 offices: Syracuse - NY, La Plata - Argentina and Kharkiv - Ukraine
* 2 fully redundant data centers.
* 250,000+ registered users - translators, linguists and interpreters.
* 15,000 outsourcers - global companies and language service providers.
* 150,000 unique visitors per day.
* 4.5 million unique visitors per month.
* 38,000 translation jobs (worth approx. $80 - $100 million) posted over the past year.
* 2.2 million terms archived and accessible in over 200 languages.
* Over 150 local "powwows" (face-to-face meetings) organized by ProZ.com members over the past year.

I hope it is allowed to post the information on this forum.

Thanks, Lucia and staff!

Aniello

I asked for the same on March 13 Jun 19, 2009

Hi Aniello,

When you mentioned this in another thread, it struck me, as I also submitted a support ticket in the same period: mine dates to March 13 -- what about yours? (I would not be surprised if it were very close; if I remember well, something that I had read on the forums led me to these key figures at the time.)

Kind regards,
Attila

Hi Attila,

yes, it was very close. I submitted the first support request on March 14. About 2 months later I submitted a second ticket. The information was not updated! I assume that staff was too busy to gather the new data and make it public.

3 days ago I posted a comment in this thread:
http://www.proz.com/forum/prozcom_technical_support/137735-when_should_support_tickets_be_closed.html

Jared promised to look into the example I had made.

I see different figures now Jun 19, 2009

Hi Aniello,

I compared your previous post with this one, and I see that figures changed: number of offices, number of registered users, number of Powwows, etc.

I have never checked the part concerning the History of ProZ, but comparing the information you quoted, it seems that they have updated it.

Am I wrong?

Edited now as I realized:

You wanted to say that they updated it!

You said Thanks Lucia and the staff, I have noticed now. Sorry!

Ciao, Emanuela

History Jun 19, 2009

Thanks, Aniello, for suggesting this, and to the staff for implementing it.

When I think of history, I also think of dates and how things developed from the past to the present. Whenever the staff have time, I think it would be nice to have the proper history, from the time Henry thought of the idea of a translators' website, to how ProZ.com has developed each year in its ten years of existence.

It would also be better to have a separate "History and Overview" tab. "Advertising" is something quite differenticon_wink.gif

Yes, Emanuela, the company has changed, and so have the figuresicon_smile.gifwww.alexa.com (The Web Information Company) is given in parenthesis.
It is a very interesting and useful site (thanks again, ProZ staff!)

Try this one:
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/proz.com#

It tells you, for example, where ProZ users come from:

Proz.com users come from these countries:

* 11.4% United States
* 9.6% Germany
* 8.7% India
* 6.0% Italy
* 3.8% Mexico

Of course, you can get info on your own websiteicon_smile.gif
