  1. ProZ.com bookclub - add an area where site members could discuss books of interest with colleagues

    I'd love to have something along the lines of a bookclub on Proz. But not merely a thread or what have you - I envision something much like the 'Quick Polls' feature on the homepage. A little side bar that would contain relevant information - such as the name/author of the book of the month, as well as a link to the thread discussing said book.

    I'm sure there are plenty of other Proz members who are proud bookworms, and who would love discussing literature with their peers as much as I would.

    • Separate "Brazilian Portuguese" from "European Portuguese" in ProZ.com lists of languages

      Portuguese is the language of Portugal and many other countries in Africa and Asia.
      Brazilian Portuguese is spoken in Brazil, which is a continental country.

      • Add option to receive payments from clients via the ProZ.com wallet

        I think it great idea to add a payment funtionality to the Proz.com wallet. It can be good solution for payments when the freelancer can´t accept the payment system of outsourcer.

        • Glossaries: alpahabetic order of personal glossaries

          Currently personal glossaries are listed according to the number of entries. For someone, who has published many dictionaries, searching with such an order is painful. I would suggest an alphabetic order of personal glossaries.

          • Provide online arbitration services

            It happens sometimes that an agency which does not understand the target language, trust a proofreader in bad faith (there are many), thus refuse to pay, if we had a 3rd party colleague chosen among the native specialized in field, I think we could be able to sort said sometimes very unpleasant situation,

            • Term search: add option to sort KudoZ term search results alphabetically

              Right now if you look for an expression in Kudoz (more than one word) you cannot find it because they are not ordered alphabetically. I suggest, if feasible, to have them ordered alphabetically.

                • Add payment processing (Proz Payoneer Card!) and accounting functionalities (invoices are great)

                  It would be great to add a whole new functionality related to administrative and accounting tasks, which are so tedious for most of us translators.

                  The new tool for sending invoices is great. I think that if you add the possibility to process payments, an escrow system and a Paypal Debit Card (you can make a partnership with Payoneer, such as Freelancer.com, Elance or similar sites), you would get much more members (for instance, I would paid for the membership).

                  • Directory: add different interpreting options (consecutive, simultaneous, liason) for directoy searches

                    The main reason from being a professional member of Proz.com is to search professionals by different criteria on the Connect platform, which is a fairly complete application to search for translators but it doesn't help at all when looking for interpreters. We find that most translators also list interpreting as a service, and most have some experience in basic liaison interpreting but barely any are professional conference interpreters (mainly simultaneous), so the feature is useless for us when looking for interpreters for a conference (unless we were to have the time to read every CV from a list of hundreds…

                      • Invoicing: separate the "Description" field into customizable info fields

                        "Description" winds up being a big mish-mash of information: PO number, file name, delivery date, type of work, language combo, and so on. I'd like to be able to break that down into separate fields to make it easier to read, and easier for me to remember to include all relevant information.
