I wonder if there are many ProZ members who would be interested in creating a new forum Topic (in General matters for example) called "Translation contests"?
I understand that it will have something in common with "Events & Announcements" and threads created here will anyway be discussed later in "Non-English forums", but it could be the place where anyone could post notification about any translation/interpreting/etc. contest held by any Translation organizations or associations, publishing house, any other professional organization, etc.
Sometimes it is useful to hear comments of other translators which already took part in the previous year contest or get any related information.

it is definitely good Mar 17, 2004

However, as you noted, we have Events and Ann. which cover the such events as well.

Excellent suggestion! Mar 18, 2004

I would definitely be interested to hear
about other people's experiences with translation competitions and awards. Off the top of my head, I can think of several interesting questions to discuss:

- Do you think competitions are a useful career development tool (in terms of getting recognition, work) for the translator?

- Which are the big ones for my language pair and does anyone have an inside view of any of them?

- Has anyone taken part in competitions and what was the result (performance, opinions, assessments)?

- What advice would you give to other translators curious about competitions?

Fingers crossed then.
Regards
Nicole
