Hello

I'm a new freelance translator, and a platinum member of Proz, receiving regular job alerts by email from you & I would like to know if it would be possible to receive new job alerts by SMS as well as by email - this would be incredibly useful - however I don't know if this would be technically possible. µAlso, I live in France, although if this service was available I for one would be willing to pay a little extra for it.
Any ideas? Thanks.

Check with mobile operator Nov 20, 2006

Hi Jenny,

Maybe you should check with your mobile operator: some of them offer email notification by SMS. At least the one I use in Russia does, and you are right, this is convenient.

Bonne chance!

As Nadejda already pointed out, this option is available with numerous ISPs. Also, many mobile phones have e-mail capability - I get all notifications from ProZ.com on my Blackberry.

Best regards,
Ralf

good point, thanks for the advice, I will check with my mobile operator but the trouble is I only want to receive alerts about Proz, not alerts every time I receive an email from anyone else!!

You can use a separate mailbox for ProZ or, if the email service you use supports filtering and forwarding, simply forward ProZ messages from your regular mailbox to another one from where you will get notifications on your phone.

A very good idea Jenny Nov 20, 2006

Of course, we all are familiar with sms email notification in general. However, it will be a great pleasure if we can receive job notifications through sms. So let us hope that the site staff respond to your suggestion at this forum.

suggestion: distinct e-mail addresses Nov 20, 2006

Actually, It would be a good idea to provide the possibility of defining multiple e-mail addresses in your ProZ.com settings for different purposes, i.e., one for job notifications, one for kudoz questions, etc.
