I just checked, and applying for a job here, cut me short claiming I had none of he language pairs.

Hu?
Checking my own profile, I most certainly do. Also I am registered a native speaker, as the job requires.

Question now, have I missed out on some spesifics here, since my profile states I am in on all the requirements - and the job claims I'm not? I am quite confused here.
(I know I haven't filled in all on my profile, but I have been offered jobs here before without any problems, and now I've just been busy - so it's taken time.)

Thanks for your help.

Submit a support ticket. Sep 28, 2008

Hello sivtufte. I don't know the answer to your question, but I know how you can get it. The fastest way to solve this type of problem is to submit a support ticket. Go to the "About" tab at the upper right of the page, and select "Support" from the drop-down menu. They will take you right through the process, and I'm sure the problem will be resolved very quickly.

Good luck, and welcome to ProZ membership!

Thank you :) Sep 28, 2008

This was a bit of a surprise - And I guess I'll just have to get my native tounge back! I'll see to it as soon as I can.

And again, thank you!
Without a language I'd be pretty lost in translation

the (bokmal) tag.
It is wise to register just Norwegian as a native language. Most clients have no idea that there are two different languages in this little country, and neither do they care, I suppose. Several people have had problems with this on proz.

It never ocurred to me, that this might be a problem. But I'll clear up my spesifics too then.

And again, thanks to you both, for being so helpful
