I think that it would be nice to have some more info in the "featured pro" window. I know the tag is displayed too, but I like "personal" tags much more than dry "Spa-Ger legal translator". Therefore, for the window to be a little bit more informative, it might contain the primary language pair and field.

Or, as an alternative, provide another line (beside the tag) to be filled up by the pro, which would be seen in the "featured pro" window only.

Language pairs should be displayed Feb 22, 2005

I definitely agree and have thought this for a long time. As it is now, people click on the Featured Pro primarily because it's just another "pretty face." Very occasionally a tagline will pique my interest, I think "oh, maybe we should collaborate" and then find out their language pair is Martian --> Venutian or something else that I don't need.

Are companies visiting proz.com really expected to click on the featured pro? As it is now, it's really nothing more than a beauty contest. Also, since we are encouraged *not* to put language pairs into our taglines, it's typically a beauty contest + vapid self-marketing ("fast and accurate", "best in the world", etc). This seems pretty ineffective/inefficient to me.
