(1) 30,000 project updates: one way to find experts (and to be found)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are looking for a translator who is specialized in a given field, you might want to try searching using the "What I am working on" feature. "What I am working on", or WIWO, allows language professionals to record updates on projects they are working on in real time. These can then be searched to find professionals reporting work on projects like those you are seeking to fill.

If you want to promote yourself in your areas of expertise, WIWO is one way of doing it. It is also an opportunity to connect with peers who work in your fields, languages, and software.

As of June, just over 30,000 projects have been recorded via WIWO. In this newsletter, you will be able to see some examples of recent project posts.

(6) Like/Agree tools for forums and "What I am working on"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A long-standing request from members for the ProZ.com forums has been a way to like or agree with a post without having to make a separate post to express agreement. New buttons in the forums allow you to click to agree with the content of a post. The number of agrees for each post are also displayed.

In addition, networking buttons have been added in the "What I am working on" feature, to allow you to like a project post or to indicate that you also work on similar projects or in similar fields.

If you want to check out how this works in the forums, why not stop by this thread discussing a recent quick poll question, "Would you normally work with an agency that uses a 60-day payment term?" https://www.proz.com/topic/326245
