(2) New communications channel added to the translation center
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A new channel has been added to the translation center for communications with the site administrators, accessible even to non-logged in visitors.

It was previously simple to communicate from job-related pages, but there was no way for conveying general messages, especially to those not logged in to the translation center.

Read about this and other improvements at https://prozcomblog.com/2017/07/27/new-channel-and-other-improvements-in-the-translation-center-powered-by-proz-com/
