  1. Please give me feedback.

    I expressed my wish to help with localization process and wrote an e-mail to Mongolian team coordinator but still haven't received any reply. Also I noticed some spelling mistakes in Mongolian translations.

    • Give the possibility to add more languages to one's profile.

      The number of languages one can add to his/her own profile is very limited, it would be helpful if one could add up to 10 languages, some of us do have expertise in more than 7 languages.

      • Allow the Website link in the Website field to be a dofollow link for paying members.

        Allow the Website link in the Website field to be a dofollow link for paying members. As this would help SEO for your website and at the same time be a benefit for having membership and it would only be one link per profile, so would not be a large drain on the proz website as far as page rank etc. Thanks.

        • Identity protection: Hide profile for visitors from certain countries

          I've heard stories about identity theft and fraud related crimes so it would be great to choose to be invisible for visitors from certain countries.

          • Toggle visibility of training sessions attended

            At the moment we can only toggle the visibility of the entire training sessions section, but I think it should be more specific. For instance, I opted for making all my training sessions that I attended invisible, because I don't want my clients to see the marketing/advertising/"make more money" courses I've taken. This works against me, because I want them to see the courses I've taken in areas I specialise in. So I think a "Visible/Invisible" option next to each course/training session would be a great improvement and very useful, because we all want our clients to see that we're…

              • SDL Post-Editing Certification

                At the moment it is not possible to add the SDL Post-Editing Certification to your profile (under the Services & Offerings section). Also the SDL Trados Studio 2014 Getting Started (level 2) is missing...
                Could you add these elements so I can update my profile?
                Many thanks for your great work!

                • Add "WWA-ranking for freelancers" on Proz.com Home

                  At Proz.com Home, we can see 'Blueboard Ranking' and 'Kudoz leaders'. It is absolutely necessary to add a "Freelancers-WWA-Ranking" to help freelancers with the best WWA. This would help freelancers to gain new clients. Thanks.

                  • Make keywords invisible to visitors

                    I think that keywords for search engines should be available to search engines, but not for visitors. If you want to improve your visibility at search engines, it is good to put all kind of stuff there, and a potential customer might not like some of the words there, and there is no reason visitors should see these words at the profile page.

                      In order to have a more precise overview of my income and costs (payments to receive and payments to be made), so that I know at any time of the month how much money I can dispose of, I suggest a parallel databank with data that can be related to an invoice that I issued (for example, in a big project for a client A, where I had support from other translators B and C: I receive payment from client A, but have to diesemburse payments for translators B and C) or simply all other cost involving my business or…

                      • Save member profiles to view later

                        Sometimes I see that a member does good work, either via kudoz or via translation samples. I would consider outsourcing to them or referring work to them in the future, but I have no way to mark their profile as being of interest to me. This would allow me to quickly view those profiles which I have saved before.

                        • It would be great to be able to send to translation agencies a link where the agencies could download all the data they need for their use

                          There should be a standard format for translator data in excel, access or so that should be able to be used by all translation agencies for their databases so that translator don´t have to fill hundreds of forms to get incorporated to these databases....

                          • Provide the option to make profile private without losing all profile details

                            Sometimes, when you are busy with major projects etc, you may not want new potential customers to waste time searching for your Proz profile and maybe contacting you. During such times, it may be valuable to everybody to have the option to make the Proz profile private so nobody else can find it while all profile details including valuable customer feedback etc remain on the profile so everything is still on your profile if you make it publicly visible again.

                              • Ability to sync google or Outlook calendar with ProZ calendar

                                I use Google calendar all the time. It is easier than trying to enter any appointments or projects in ProZ, and then I have to update my ProZ calendar manually.

                                It would be really useful if my Google calendar could be displayed instead of the ProZ calendar to show if am busy or available. That would prevent my ProZ potential clients of seeing an outdated calendar if I just created an event for a time slot that they see as available on my ProZ calendar.

                                  Obscure profiles claiming to provide services in all the world's languages and in all imaginable specialties, but "forget" to provide their location and contact data must raise a red flag in anyone. Requiring the inclusion of this data will protect less experienced service providers and contribute to the general transparency in our profession.

                                    • Allow members to opt out of being able to see IPs

                                      EU personal data watchdogs can be pretty crazy about that. I would really appreciate the ability to opt out of being able to see IPs. You don't see them, you don't have a problem. Especially if you implement the other member's suggestion and just display the country and town.

                                      • Enable a flag to a faster graphically identification of users.

                                        Images ares processed faster by brain than text. The idea is to have a small flag, like TRADOS do in its interface.

                                        • give option to hide or show Kudoz points

                                          e option to hide or show Kudoz points

                                          Why are Kudoz points automatically shown? Is this something new? I don't recall this always being the case. I believe that freelancers should have the option to show this if they so wish, but they should also have the option not to show this.
