Hello fellow translators,
I just signed up with ProZ. I am posting this on Translator resources in case there is anyone who'd be interested in my lexicons of French to English words used in various fields (Olympic Games, Chocolates, Information Technology, Law, etc).
The lexicons are not exhaustive (about 30 words per field) and are divided into three parts.
You can view them here: www.francais-anglais.blogspot.com.

If I'm posting this in the wrong forum, my apologies.

Would like to collaborate with all of you! Hoping that my ProZ experience will be productive and mutually satisfying.

Cheers,
mot2word

and welcome - I find ProZ very useful - both in a "giving help" mode and in a "obtaining help" mode.

Well, I'm sure some people would be interested, but when I clicked on your link, I was in fact taken to
http://status.blogger.com/
which is purely about the status of the blogspot system

newbie who wants to share lexicons Apr 17, 2010

I'm sorry about that Oliver. But I did check and my blog is there alright. I wonder if it has anything to do with the browser you're using.
Would you mind trying: www.francais-anglais.blogspot.com again? I just typed the entire URL on Internet Explorer and it was there! I also clicked on it and it took me to where it should take me.
I apologise for your inconvenience.
An alternative would be to go on google and type on the search box: francais-anglais blog. Maybe that'll do it.

May I ask Apr 17, 2010

... why you are so eager to share your 30 words of "lexicon" and why we are supposed to click on this particular link?

why? Apr 17, 2010

I was wondering myself. And the other thing – I don’t think I would be so eager to share my glossary. It took me so much time and work to build it.
regards, Ewa

Thank you for your question: you need not click on this particular link. I just thought that I'd share these simple lexicons as a way of contributing to the community. ProZ is a great source of terminology and I just can't be taking and taking without giving. Glossaries have become a democratic platform, there are hundreds of glossaries on the World Wide Web in the more common language pairs.
So even if I worked hard to build them, I don't mind sharing them at all. I enjoy this aspect of translation. I have met hundreds of people who share their glossaries. But you don't have to go to that link if you don't want to.

Hello Ewa,
Thank you for your comment. Please see my reply to Nicole Schnell. Absolutely no obligation on your part to take a look. As for my doing it in spite of the hard work I did, I believe in sharing. To me ProZ is a great source of jobs and terminology bases. Just thought I'd do for my part for the community. That's allicon_smile.gif

Thanks Apr 17, 2010

and welcome. I think this is a possitive action. You can also build glossaries in Proz and they will help to raise your profile here, if you are interested.

Thank you for your encouragement, Lesley. Much appreciated. Yes, I look forward to building glossaries on ProZ. Glad you think this is a positive action! Now, I'm more inspired.

Bug in ProZ.com forum software Apr 17, 2010

That is because ProZ.com's forum software automatically assumes that the fullstop following the web address is part of the web address, and it turns the URL into the following hyperlink (unspaced):

h t t p : / / w w w . f r a n c a i s - a n g l a i s . b l o g s p o t . c o m . /

...which is of couse incorrect and redirects to a blogspot default page.

[updated post to fix yet another bug in ProZ.com forum software, namely that one should not have a URL with "h t t p : / /" in it directly before the "/quote" tag.]

Very strange web link www.francais-anglais.blogspot.com. May 11, 2010

Hello,

I find very strange that the first time I clicked on your lik www.francais-anglais.blogspot.com. I ended up on a strange We page talking about status and updating and the second time I clicked on it I ended up on the right Web site. I use Mozillz Firefox.

This never happened to me before.Or maybe you changed the web site presentation between my 2 clicks? However I doubt because the time interval was only about 2 seconds...:-)

Any explanation to this?

Thank you Alexandre, "newbie who'd like to share glossaries" May 11, 2010

Hello Alexandre,
Thanks for your message. Yes, that problem was raised before by someone here as well. Glad you tried one more time and you were directed to the right blog. No, I did not change anything during the interval. Have not posted anything recently because I'm swamped with copywriting work.
Cheers,
