Today I received a couple of Russian to German KudoZ questions, perhaps because I once was able to translation a German word to English that was accidentally placed in the Russian>English pair.

I really don't know much German and German is not listed among my ProZ language pairs, so I can't "remove" it. How do I stop receiving such ProZ questions then?

It's strange Jul 13, 2005

If you don't have German in your listed languages the only explanation I can imagine is that the questions were posted in a wrong language pair.

You should be able to see this when looking at the questions.

Pairs were edited Jul 13, 2005

There were at least two questions today which were posted as Russian-English but were actually Russian-German. The pairs were edited to amend them to Russian-German (one by me, one by someone else). This may have something to do with it.

...hoy recibí un comentario alemán-ruso, o algo así. ¡Qué raro! Debió ser un bug.
