I would like to have a country filter in the WWA section. Right now, in the "View WWA satistics" tab, we can filter language pairs and field of expertise but not the country of residence.

Kind regards!

Why would a search by country be useful? Jun 4, 2012

Hello Yaotl,

Thanks for the suggestion! However, would you mind clarifying why exactly you would like to be able to see WWA statistics by country? This will help me assess your suggestion. Thanks!

Lucia

Hello Lucia,

Well, in the English-Spanish pair, for instance, we see a general table with translators from Spain, Mexico, Argentina, et al and their WWAs. This table represents the number of WWAs, but does not achieve the goal of get a fast and accurate search because as a user I have to clik on each profile to get more information about the Spanish variant for each translator/interpreter listed therein.

So, my proposal is to add a filter which may define the WWA by country. Clients searching translators/interpreters, or translators/interpreters searching other colleagues, from a given country will find us quickly and accurately. This will enhance the search process according to experience (based on WWA), and localization (the respective Spanish variant).

have a nice day!
