(1) Improvements to privacy and data protection at ProZ.com
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Especially if you live or work in the EU, you have heard a lot about GDPR -- General Data Protection Regulation -- lately. On May 25th, the GDPR went into effect. In preparation for this, the ProZ.com team made several improvements and adjustments to the way personal information can be entered and managed by users of ProZ.com. To learn more about ProZ.com's compliance with GDPR and to review and manage your personal data settings, please see:

(2) New ProZ.com translation contest: "The Sounds of Silence"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Before voluntary isolation on mobile phones, buses and trains rang with conversation. Newspaper-sellers did not leave their wares in a mute pile, but advertised them at top volume, as did vendors of cherries, violets and fresh mackerel. The theatre and the opera were a chaos of huzzahs and barracking..."

A new translation contest starts today, June 1st, with a source text in English. Check it out and try your hand at translating the short text dealing with sounds and silence.

ProZ.com contests are a fun way of testing and honing your translation skills while networking. They are also another way of distinguishing yourself among colleagues and potential clients.

(4) Come test the water in ProZ.com Pools
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As Summer arrives (for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere), vacationers begin to gather near bodies of water for rest and relaxation.

On ProZ.com, year-round, experts from all over the world are gathering in Pools™ for a different reason: to increase their professional visibility and client contact in the areas in which they specialize.

If you specialize in one of these areas, there is already a Pool for you:
* Copywriting
* Subtitling
* Project management
* Interpreting
* Game localization
* Literary translation
* Pharmaceutical translation

(5) New search tool for connecting clients with service providers: ProZ Find™ (alpha)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On ProZ.com, most work is passed via the directory and through direct profile contact. Having a strong online profile and high visibility in the directory can significantly affect the kind of potential client contact you receive.

A new version of the ProZ.com directory, "ProZ Find™" is currently in alpha testing, after a round of feedback from members of the Certified PRO Network (CPN) earlier this year. ProZ Find™ is designed to be more intuitive and to make it even easier for clients to find and connect with the right language professionals for the job.

(7) ProZ.com staff attend BP18
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This year's BP conference for freelance translators and interpreters was held in Vienna in April. Helen, Tatiana, and Enrique from the ProZ.com team were happily in attendance. For Enrique and Tatiana, this was their first industry conference, so they were a bit nervous! A great time was had by all three, and they report back on their experience in this blog post:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
