Discussion about Homo-digital: "La sociedad transparente" in Spanish to Portuguese (BR)Interesting Text

I enjoyed participating in this contest very much and I'm especially excited for winning two contests in a row (ES > PT-Br and EN > PT-Br).
This particular contest presented a text that was interesting, engaging, relatively challenging, and on a current topic of interest. I hope to participate in future contests. Thank you all who voted for my translation.

Gostei muito de ter participado deste concurso e estou contente por haver ganhado em dois concursos consecutivamente (ES > PT-Br e EN > PT-Br).
Este concurso em particular apresentou um texto interessante, envolvente, relativamente desafiador, e acerca de um tópico de interesse atual. Espero participar de outros concursos no futuro. Obrigado a tod@s que votaram em minha tradução.

Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to everyone who voted!


In the following pairs, too few votes were received to define a winning translation:



For these pairs, a two-week voting extension will be made, to attempt to get more voters, after which pairs which still have too few votes will be put in feedback mode. If you are able to vote in one of these language pairs and have not yet done so, your votes will be appreciated.

Discussion about 17th Translation Contest: "The Sounds of Silence" in English to Haitian-CreoleLack of Votes in "The Sounds of Silence" Contest- Disappointing from Our Community

Hello Everyone-

This is to all of the Haitian Creole translators who were apparently too busy to choose a winner in "The Sounds of Silence" contest- it's very disappointing that we all had put forth considerable effort to do the translation and participate in the competition yet it was entirely in vain since not enough individuals from our community voted.

This is sad- especially considering the fact that all the other language pairs were well-represented and well-participated in.

What does this say about our community as Haitian Creole translators?
I can think of a few things myself.
All it took was literally 60 seconds out of your day to choose a winner.

What members have said about ProZ.com translation contests

Thanks to all the contest organizers - it must be a mammoth task and in the end it is an enjoyable and useful process!

Bravo again to ProZ.com for the opportunity it provides to so many translators to have fun, work hard and do things differently and in a different spirit.

It was fun to translate [the contest source text] because it presents a certain idea or principle in many different ways (and words) and thereby reveals whether the translator has full command of his/her target language.
