(1) Some information gathered about how freelancers are adapting to changes in the translation industry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You might remember that in the January newsletter I asked you to share your input on current trends in translation and interpreting. A few of us on the ProZ.com site team will be heading to Munich for the GALA conference next week and to discuss how freelance translators and interpreters are adapting to technological changes in the industry. I thought I would share a few of the findings that came out of the surveys and conversations with you here. If you like charts and pie graphs, this is the newsletter for you.

(6) Finals voting now open in all pairs in the translation contest
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finals voting opened for all pairs in competition in the most recent transaltion contest. The contest source text is about "placebo buttons"-- buttons that don't do anything when we push or click them.

The buttons to vote for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the contest do actually work, and if you can use them to cast your votes, it would be greatly appreciated by those who submitted entries. Thank you!
