one special location on proz.com's home page to be designed for questions which are very infrequent for example Turkish/ Arabic/ Chinese to Persian language or vice versa as well as other languages which may be only one time appear on the home page and no one can see them on their pre established pairs.

You can see them on the homepage if you choose Nov 27, 2005

Hi Fareedeh,

If I didn't misunderstand you, the solution to your problem should be easy. If you want to follow the questions in, for example Turkish to Persian, just enter them in your profile as languages of interest (note that you don't have to show this pair on your page), and then you'll be able to see any questions posted under "Your Prefs" in the Kudoz list published on the homepage.

Hope this clarifies.

Regards,
Özden

Thank you Nov 28, 2005

Thank you. Turkish to Persian is an example; I have seen some questions that no body had answered them because such pairs usually are not expected. Of course, you know better than me, since you know that how many people had read and viewed them but not answered. I talk about those questions which have not a chance to be read and answered. As well as some persons are familiar with some languages but due to some reasons had not written them in their profile so they not receive notification about questions in such languages.

How about Language X to or from anything? Dec 18, 2005

I agree with this. I recently looked for someone who would be able to answer a Mediaeval French question (expressed in English but about Mediaeval French). There's only one person registered with an interest, and she only records Mediaeval French to English. However, it's quite possible she could answer a lot of questions about Mediaeval French.

Now, you could say she should record it as a monolingual choice, but it might help to have a general option "Lang X Any", or to have the software look at the number of people available to answer the question, and then generalising the search if it was less than (say) 10 people.

David

Thank you very much Dec 18, 2005

It is a very good idea. I also suggest to proz.com to establish one pair for posting without specific language questions as well as design one more option other than agree, neutral, disagree for example I read your answer and it was good and thank you.
