A 'survey' has appeared on the proz.com homepage today.

There is no indication of who is asking the questions, or why.

Can someone please clarify?

ProZ.com survey Sep 17, 2010

Hi MediaMatrix,

That would be me. The why is to get some insight on a few different aspects of translator work.

I changed the the notice to read "ProZ.com survey" to better clarify. Thanks for pointing that out!

Question 3 should have "Don't know" option.

I looked at it yesterday and decided not to answer it because it was probably someone trying to sell me something rather than being genuinely interested in my opinions.
