  • 1.2 - How do I begin completing my new profile?

    Go to your Profile updater to update your profile, including contact information, financial information, and more. Make sure to click on Save and update profile once you are done.

  • 2.1 - How can I edit/update the information in my profile?

    There are two ways of editing the information in your profile:


    1. You can click on the edit icon usually shown below or next to the profile feature. This will directly take you to the section you would like to update.
    2. You can go to your Profile updater and click on the section(s) you would like to update. Make sure to click on Save and update profile once you are done.


  • 2.2 - Why are certain fields classified as required or encouraged?

    The classification of a profile field as required or encouraged (as opposed to simply available) corresponds to the possible contribution of that field to the goal of helping to ensure that a profile owner gets the most out of ProZ.com.

    Required fields are those that are important enough that the failure to supply data for the field (or alternatively, to explicitly decline to enter data) results in the profile being regarded as incomplete. Encouraged fields are those that may help a profile owner to get more out of ProZ.com, though are not necessarily as critical as the required fields.

    Note that in classifying a given field as required or encouraged, ProZ.com is not endorsing the use of that field either for qualifying translators or for any other purpose. It is one of the guiding principles of the site that users are given the tools to help them work in the ways they choose to do so. In other words, a profile field tends to exist when there are enough people who want to use it (either to share information or to search by it.) Therefore, the classification of a field as required or encouraged tends to correspond to the relative frequency with which that field is used.

  • 1.3 - What is my profile ID/number?

    Your profile ID/number is the last number at the end of your profile URL. To see it go to My profile and check the last number shown in the URL of your profile box at the top left of your profile. To create a profile simply register for free at www.proz.com/register

  • 3.1 - What link should I provide my customers to direct them to my ProZ.com profile?

  • 3.2 - Can I link to my ProZ.com profile from my personal website? Can I use the logo when I do so?

    Yes. You can find a comprehensive description of how to link to your profile in this page.

    Make sure you add /profile/{your profile number} after a href="http://www.proz.com".



  • Main - Top


  • 1.4 - How do I enter my first and last names in my profile?

    To enter your real name in your profile, visit the ProZ.com account section of your Profile updater and enter your first and last names in the Contact first name and Contact last name write-in fields respectively. Finally, click on Save and update profile at the bottom of the page to save your data.

    You can set visibility permissions for your name under the Define your site name section, within the Identity box.

  • 4.1 - How do I hide or show my real name in my profile?

    You can chose to show or hide your real name in your profile at any time. Note that name changes may take up to one hour to become effective.

    If the name visible in your profile is your username and you want to show your real name instead, just go to the ProZ.com account section of your Profile updater and enter your real name in the Identity field. Once you have entered your real name, select the Show first and last name, as entered in profile option in the Define your site name section (within the same box). Make sure that the Show to everyone visibility option is selected and click on Save and update profile at the bottom of the page to save the changes.

    If what is showing is your real name and you want to show your username instead, just select the Show username, as used in login option in the Define your site name section of the Identity box and then click on Save and update profile at the bottom of the page.


  • 4.2 - Can I show my real name to outsourcers and my username to other users?

    Yes, all you have to do is enter your real name in your profile and choose the option to show it only to outsourcers in your Profile updater. Please note that this setting is based on account type, so your real name will not be shown to outsourcers who are not logged in, or those who have not properly classified their profiles.


  • 4.3 - I do not want my real name to show in search engines. How can I change this?

    Profiles, similar to the forums and KudoZ, are public. This means that they can be indexed by search engines and displayed as part of search results. If you have chosen to show your real name as your site name (profile name) it is then possible that your real name is then shown as part of search engine results. If this is the case, and you want your name to stop showing in search engines results, start by changing your site name (profile name) at ProZ.com. To do so, go to your Profile updater and change your site name settings by selecting Show username, as used in login. Remember to click on Save and update profile at the bottom of the page. Note that this change may take a few minutes to become visible in your profile page.

    Once the change has been made effective in your ProZ.com profile and your username (login name) shows instead of your real name, you will still need to request the removal of the cache version of your profile page (or any other ProZ.com page in which your real name shows) from search engines or else wait until search engines update their indexes (this may take from 4 days up to 2 months). In the case of Google, you may request the removal of any cache page containing your real name in the Google search console.

    If you need help with any of the steps described above, please submit a support request.


  • 4.4 - I changed my site name but search engines still show the old name. Why?

    When you chose to display a given site name (real name or username), it may be cached by some search engines. Thus, if you decide to change this name later, or to change visibility permissions for your site name, it will take a certain period of time for search engines to update their cache and stop showing the old profile or site name.

    If you do not want search engines to show your old site name, you need to request the search engines in question to update their caches. You can request the removal of outdated content from Google in their search console.

  • 1.5 - Can I control the visibility of the information in my profile?

    2. By toggling visibility of pre-formatted features by clicking on the visibility toggle next to them:

  • 5.1 - How do I change visibility settings for the Blue Board entries made by this user section of my profile?

    Yes. You can add a short phrase that sums up your most important attribute as a service provider or outsourcer (or tagline) to show below your site name in your profile and in the directory. To enter a tagline, click on the small edit icon next to Edit your tagline, below your profile name. This will take you to the Marketing and promotion section of your Profile updater.

    No, only plain text may be used in your personal information. HTML characters such as < or > will be converted to plain text. This also applies to your keywords and tagline.

    The basic rule of thumb is that if it appears only on your profile page, HTML is allowed. If it appears anywhere else on the site, HTML is not allowed.


  • 1.12 - Can I control the language in which visitors see my profile?

    Yes. Go to the Settings tab in your profile, and click on Search engine settings.

    3.

  • 3.2 - I have edited my contact info but the quick profile does not show it.

    ProZ.com utilizes more than one web server.

During this time, you may notice a blank or outdated data where you entered the information. Please give it some time before submitting a support request.


  • 3.3 - Can I make my email address visible in the Contact section of my profile?

    No. This is designed as a means of security, to protect your address from spammers and scammers, and is why the profile email sending function (the little envelope at the top of your profile) is used. If you choose to publicly post your email address, you may do so for example in the About me section or CV of your profile. Please be aware of the risks of doing so.

You can also add, delete or hide other instant messaging icons in your profile. Remember that showing your online status can be a useful way of letting people you work with know you are available via profile mail or ProZ.com Instant Messaging.


  • 3.8 - ProZ.com instant messenger online status is not showing in my profile. Why?

    If the small P icon that shows your online status and serves as an instant messenger tool is not showing in your profile, check your instant messenger settings to make sure you have chosen to show your online status (if so, the link option next to ProZ.com Online Status should read Hide).

  • 4.6 - Pengakuan Penutur Pribumi ProZ.com

  • 6.1 - Saya perlu menyatakan bahasa ibu yang kedua, atau saya salah memasukkan bahasa ibu.

    Silakan kirimkan permintaan dukungan untuk bantuan.


  • 6.2 - Apakah pengakuan Penutur Pribumi ProZ.com itu?

    Pengakuan Penutur Pribumi adalah tanda yang menyatakan bahwa seorang anggota ProZ.com adalah penutur pribumi bahasa tersebut.

    Ikon 'huruf besar N" sudah muncul pada halaman profil, dan dalam beberapa bulan akan muncul di seluruh situs di sebelah nama anggota yang telah menerima pengakuan. Akan tampak seperti ini: ProZ.com Native Speaker: Russian Rusia

    Arahkan mouse pada tanda atau klik tanda akan mengungkapkan informasi tambahan.


  • 6.3 - Apakah arti warna ikon yang berbeda-beda?

    Ikon Penutur Pribumi ProZ.com biru dan kuning () digunakan untuk menandai penutur pribumi yang sudah hampir dipastikan benar. Ini termasuk bahasa ibu yang telah dikonfirmasi oleh ProZ.com, dan bahasa ibu yang dilaporkan oleh anggota ProZ.com yang bersumpah bahwa mereka hanya memiliki satu bahasa ibu (bahasa ibu tidak dapat diubah setelah dinyatakan).

    Ikon Penutur Pribumi ProZ.com hitam dan abu-abu () digunakan untuk menyatakan bahasa ibu yang telah dilaporkan, tapi belum dikonfirmasi. Ini termasuk bahasa ibu yang dilaporkan oleh bukan-anggota, bahkan jika mereka hanya melaporkan satu bahasa ibu. Hal ini disebabkan oleh adanya kemungkinan mereka yang bukan-anggota membuat profil ganda dengan satu bahasa ibu yang berbeda untuk masing-masing profil, dengan tujuan menghindari ketentuan mengenai perlunya konfirmasi untuk bahasa ibu berganda.


  • 6.4 - Bagaimana saya mendapatkan pengakuan untuk satu bahasa?

    Anggota ProZ.com dengan satu bahasa ibu hanya diminta untuk menyatakan bahasa tersebut. Untuk menyatakan bahasa ibu Anda, pergi ke bagian "Bahasa" pada Profile updater, pilih bahasa ibu Anda dari daftar di sebelah kiri di bagian "Bahasa ibu" dan klik "Tambahkan". Setelah bahasa tersebut berada dalam daftar di sebelah kanan, klik "Simpan dan perbarui profil" di bagian bawah halaman untuk menyimpan pilihan Anda.


  • 6.5 - Bagaimana saya mendapatkan pengakuan untuk lebih dari satu bahasa?

    Anggota yang melaporkan hanya menguasai satu bahasa ibu diasumsikan sebagai penutur pribumi bahasa tersebut, dan tidak perlu membuktikannya. Akan tetapi, anggota yang melaporkan bahasa ibu berganda, di masa depan akan diminta untuk membuktikan tuturan pribumi mereka dalam setiap bahasa di hadapan penutur pribumi bahasa tersebut. Sampai hal ini tercapai, ikon hitam dan abu-abu akan diartikan sebagai bahasa ibu yang belum dikonfirmasi.


  • 6.6 - How many native languages can be reported?

    At the time being, only two native languages can be reported. There are no immediate plans to add a third language.


  • 6.7 - Apa definisi "penutur pribumi" yang digunakan?

    Daripada menekankan definisi "pribumi", program PPP menyerahkan definisi kepada anggota. Pada saat menyatakan hanya satu bahasa, tidak diperlukan persyaratan.

    Untuk mereka yang menyatakan penutur pribumi ganda, tuturan akan dianggap sebagai pribumi jika beberapa Penutur Pribumi ProZ.com lainnya juga menganggapnya demikian (sesuai dengan definisi mereka masing-masing).


  • 6.8 - Apakah pengakuan PPP menentukan seseorang adalah penerjemah yang baik atau tidak?

    Tentu saja tidak. Penutur pribumi hanyalah satu faktor yang mungkin dipertimbangkan oleh klien pada saat menyaring penerjemah atau juru bahasa. Biasanya ini bukan merupakan faktor terpenting.


  • 6.9 - Berapa biaya untuk mendapatkan pengakuan PPP?

    Tidak ada biaya untuk menyatakan kemampuan bahasa ibu dalam satu bahasa. Saat ini belum ditentukan apakah akan ada biaya untuk prosedur verifikasi yang diperlukan oleh mereka yang menyatakan diri penutur beragam bahasa.


  • 6.10 - 2 bahasa pribumi saya lainnya masih tertunda. Berapa lama saya dapat membuktikannya?

    Kami masih mengembangkan strateginya saat ini. Apabila kami telah memiliki program yang siap jalan, Anda akan diberitahu.

  • 5 - Services

  • 5.1 - How can I report the services I offer?

    To report the services you offer, simply go the Services & offerings section of your Profile updater and select the services you offer from the list to the left and click on Add. Once you have added your services to the list to the right, click on Save and update profile at the bottom of the page to save your services. As with all sections of your profile, you can drag-and-drop your reported services to list them in order of relevance.



    You will then be able to report the services for each specific language pair, from the Languages section of your Profile updater. You can find more detailed instructions in this FAQ.


  • 5.2 - How do I add a monolingual service?

    Some users may choose to add monolingual services in their profiles, including checking/editing, voiceover, education, transcription, etc. To do this, simply go to the Languages section of your Profile updater, click on Add new pair and choose the same language in both the Source language and Target language drop-down menus.

    Then, check all the appropriate boxes to indicate the services you perform for this monolingual language pair, and click on the Add pair button.

    If you check your profile then, you will see under your profile picture that a Language (monolingual) has been added.


  • 5.3 - Why is it important to report services offered?

    Your profile is your public face at ProZ.com. It serves as your business card and directory listing, and is the first impression of you that colleagues and potential clients will have when they find you at ProZ.com. In addition to finding your profile via ProZ.com, there is also a good chance that potential clients will find your ProZ.com profile when seeking language professionals using search engines such as Google or Yahoo! —provided that you optimize your profile accordingly. So, by reporting in your profile the services you offer, you increase the chances of showing as part of search results when potential clients search by keyword (eg. translation, interpreting, training, etc.).

    Also, reporting services in your profile allows you to be notified of recent job postings in the language pairs and the fields you have reported in your profile. For information on the criteria taken into account for job notifications, see this FAQ. To set your job notification preferences, visit your Jobs dashboard.

    Finally, remember that to be able to quote on jobs and show up in the directory, you must have reported in your profile the service specified by the outsourcer in the job posting or in the directory search.


  • 5.4 - Why am I not listed as an interpreter/proofreader/copywriter?

    Please check that you have added all your services to the Services & offerings section of your Profile updater. To improve your directory position, place your most important service(s) at the top of this list. Make sure to click on Save and update profile once you are done.



    Be sure to declare your language pair-specific services too. Declaring these services is key to connecting with clients. Go to your Languages tab to edit this. When you add a new language pair using the Add language pairs... button, make sure to check every service you offer in that particular language pair.



    If you have already reported a language pair, click on the pencil-shaped button to the right to edit it.

  • 6 - Fields of expertise

  • 6.1 - How can I add and edit my fields of expertise in my profile?

    To report fields in your profile, go to the Services & offerings section of your Profile updater. To report General fields simply select a field from the list to the left and click on Sometimes to have the chosen field(s) added to the list of general fields that you work in. Once you have checked all the general fields you want to report, just click on Save. To edit your fields, click on the pencil-shaped button at the bottom right corner, and remove them by marking Never.




    To report specialty, working and interest fields, select each field from the list available in the Detailed fields section. You can select multiple fields at a time. To remove them, hover over each field and click the x. To improve your directory position, place your most important field(s) at the top, by dragging-and-dropping.


  • 6.2 - Can I change the order of fields reported in my profile?

    Yes, you can change the order of specialty, working and interest fields you have reported in your profile from the Services & offerings section of your Profile updater. Just click on each field and drag it to the position you would like it to occupy in the list of fields. Remember to click on Save order at the bottom of the list after moving each field.


  • 6.3 - Bagaimana ruas-ruas keahlian diklasifikasikan di ProZ.com?

    Beberapa struktur kategori dipakai di seluruh ProZ.com untuk tujuan klasifikasi kiriman pekerjaan, pertanyaan istilah, tempat keahlian pribadi, daftar kata, dan sebagainya. Ada dua struktur utama: kategori umum ProZ.com (9 di antaranya), dan kategori detil ProZ.com (lebih dari 100).


  • 6.4 - What are the detailed categories of expertise?

    The detailed categories are a subject classification system developed based on the keywords used in a free entry box to describe the fields of KudoZ questions asked.

    This more detailed category structure has been created with the following aims:


    • Providing a means of expressing specific areas of expertise in profiles, jobs and directory searches.
    • Providing finer KudoZ categorization, enabling more targeted emailing and, eventually, user download of field-specific glossaries.

    All users are advised to enter detailed fields of expertise (working and interest) in their profile pages, in the expertise section. Also, whenever possible, a detailed category should be entered at the time a new KudoZ question is posted.

    Furthermore, users with a sufficient number of KudoZ points can be given the right to classify questions which the asker has not classified with detailed categories, and are encouraged to do so. These users are called KudoZ editors


  • 6.5 - Bagaimana ruas-ruas itu dulu ditetapkan?

    Baik himpunan "bidang" umum maupun detil telah dibuat menurut analisis pola pemakaian situs. Kategori-kategori umum adalah kategori umum atas tempat pekerjaan pernah dikirimkan selama masa kajian. Kategori-kategori detil adalah kategori detil atas tempat istilah-istilah KudoZ pernah dikirimkan selama masa kajian.


  • 6.6 - Ruas-ruas ini sepertinya tidak ada artinya.

    Taksonomi ruas-ruas yang dipakai di ProZ.com mencerminkan karakteristik pasar. Belum ada usaha untuk menjadikannya teruji dengan analisis akademik yang teliti.


  • 6.7 - Why is my specialty not available?

    If you can't find your specialty, please submit a support request indicating which one you would liked added and then we will add it to our task list for development. Note that it is unlikely that a category would be added based upon a single request. But requests for additional categories, coupled with ongoing review of site usage patterns, will determine future changes to the category structure.


  • 6.8 - Mengapa beberapa kategori muncul dua kali - seperti "mobil" dan "otomotif"?

    Karena banyak orang memasukkan nama ruas ini ke dalam masing-masing selama masa kajian. Untuk mencegah pemisahan data serupa (misalnya, istilah KudoZ), kategori-kategori identik (atau hampir identik) ini disatukan dalam basisdata. Sehingga tidak mengapa kalau Anda memasukkan pertanyaan sebagai pertanyaan "otomotif" atau "mobil"; pertanyaan ini akan diperlakukan dan ditayangkan dengan cara yang tepat sama sesudahnya.

    Cara terbaik untuk bekerja dengan struktur kategori detil adalah jangan memikirkannya terlalu serius!


  • 6.9 - How many general, specialty, and working fields can I enter in my profile from the Fields of expertise page?

    You are allowed to enter up to 10 specialties, 30 working fields, and up to 8 of the 9 general fields available. Only 5 or less from the general field will appear on your profile page. However all your specialty fields will appear on your profile page, and your working fields will appear collapsed, available under a More button.




  • 6.10 - What is the difference between Specialty fields and Working fields?

    Specialty fields are also working fields, but they are fields in which you specialize or do your best work. If your top area is, say, medicine, you should make sure it is listed as your top specialty, and you should consider accompanying this with sample translations related to medicine in your profile. Outsourcers can look for language professionals by specialty fields, so this can be important in meeting potential clients.


  • 6.11 - Does the order of my specialty fields affect my directory positioning?

    The ten fields that you have reported first will be considered your specialty fields. The following thirty fields will be considered your working fields, and the remaining fields will be considered interest fields. In directory searches for specialists in a field, those who have reported that field in their top-ten will have preferential positioning over those who marked it as working. Those who placed it between the 11th and 40th spots will in turn be given a priority placement over the users who reported it as interest.


  • 6.12 - Why can't I enter more than 10 specialty fields (and 30 working fields)?

    It is possible to select 10 specialty fields and 30 working fields, which means you may appear in the directory for a total of 40 fields. While we recognize that there are translators who are able to work in more fields, users are asked to select their best 10 (and after that, their next-best 30). ProZ.com is based on the idea of specialized translation and this system is designed around the idea that one can only be a specialist in so many fields at once.


  • 6.13 - Why aren't my detailed fields of expertise displayed on my profile page?

    Only the specialization fields that you select as specialty and working will appear on your profile page —that is, the first 40 fields you selected.

  • 7 - Credentials

  • 7.1 - Apakah "kredensial" itu?

    Berbagai macam asosiasi, sekolah, dan lembaga lain di seluruh dunia menawarkan sesuatu yang umumnya disebut ProZ.com sebagai "kredensial". Bentuk ini bisa berupa "sertifikasi", "gelar" atau bentuk-bentuk kualifikasi lain.


  • 7.2 - Bagaimana kredensial dipakai di ProZ.com?

    Anggota dimungkinkan untuk melaporkan telah mendapat kredensial lewat halaman profil. Demikian juga, pemasang pekerjaan mampu membatasi pemasangan pekerjaan kepada para anggota yang telah melaporkan kredensial. (Mereka boleh tidak membatasi pemasangan pekerjaan kepada mereka dengan kredensial yang sudah dicek.) Pencarian direktori dapat juga dibatasi untuk mereka dengan kredensial yang sudah dilaporkan atau dicek.

    Ingat, tidak ada standar seragam bagi kredensial penerjemah. Bahkan, kredensial tidak ada di banyak pasangan bahasa, dan mungkin orang yang tinggal di daerah tertentu sulit untuk mendapat peluang memperoleh kredensial. Direkomendasikan agar pilihan membatasi penasangan pekerjaan atau pencarian direktori dengan kredensial yang sudah dilaporkan digunakan secara selektif, dan hanya untuk pasangan bahasa utama saja.


  • 7.3 - Bagaimana saya melaporkan kredensial saya?

    Untuk melaporkan kredensial, pertama pergilah ke profile updater Anda, dan klik 'Tambah kredensial' di sebelah pasangan bahasa yang dinyatakan di bagian Pasangan bahasa. Sebuah jendela akan muncul, memungkinkan Anda menulis kredensial profesional, sertifikat atau akreditasi yang Anda peroleh di tempat yang diakui pemerintah.

    Catatan: Mohon pastikan Anda melaporkan kedua pasangan bahasa (jika ada).

    Setelah semua kredensial Anda lalkukan, maka akan muncul di profil Anda, di bagian Kredensial.


  • 7.4 - Apakah saya harus mengirimkan salinan kredensial untuk verifikasi?

    Saringan krendensial digunakan dalam proyek hanya didasari oleh pernyataan Anda yang telah atau belum menyebutkan kredensial. Memverifikasi kredensial Anda akan berguna bagi profil Anda dan Anda sendiri, serta merupakan tambahan jaminan bagi calon klien bahwa Anda adalah profesional yang memenuhi syarat.

    Catatan: jika Anda menyebutkan suatu kredensial, Anda mungkin akan diminta oleh situs untuk memverifikasi keberadaan kredensial dengan nama Anda. Jika Anda tidak bisa memverifikasi kredensial yang sudah Anda sebutkan, kemungkinan akan dihapus dari profil Anda.


  • 7.5 - Bagaimana saya mengesahkan kredensial saya?

    ProZ.com memverifikasi kredensial terkait bahasa yang dilaporkan oleh para anggota ProZ.com. Saat ini kredensial berikut dapat disahkan:

    • Akreditasi yang dikeluarkan oleh lembaga seperti: AAIT, AAIC, CTA, dsb.
    • Gelar/Kredensial Akademis terkait Bahasa yang dikeluarkan oleh institusi pendidikan terakreditasi
    Pertama, laporkan kredensial Anda dalam Profile Updater Anda dengan mengklik 'Tambah kredensial' di samping pasangan bahasa yang dinyatakan pada bagian Pasangan bahasa. Sebuah jendela akan muncul, memungkinkan Anda menyebutkan kredensial profesional, sertifikat atau akreditasi yang telah Anda peroleh di tempat yang diakui pemerintah.

    Kedua, kirimkan lampiran kredensial Anda melalui sistem dukungan daring kami, yang merupakan cara tercepat agar kredensial Anda segera diverifikasi. Harap kirimkan
  • 7.6 - Apakah ProZ.com memverifikasi keanggotaan di organisasi atau asosiasi?

    Karena umumnya organisasi itu sementara, dan bisa berubah, ProZ.com tak dapat memverifikasi keanggotaan dalam organisasi atau asosiasi.


  • 7.7 - Apakah ProZ.com memverifikasi surat referensi dari kolega atau perusahaan?

    Tidak. Hanya akreditasi yang diterbitkan oleh yang berwenang dan kredensial/gelar akademis terkait bahasa yang dikeluarkan oleh institusi pengajaran terakreditasi yang bisa diverifikasi.


  • 7.8 - I took a language course, not a translation course. Can I declare it as a credential?

    Yes, you can declare that course, but only under the language you took a course for. For example, if you took an English course, you can only declare it under English (monolingual) in your profile.

  • 8 - Verified Identity Program

  • 8.1 - Apakah Program Verifikasi Identitas (VID)?

    Anggota staf ProZ.com, moderator dan relawan lainnya telah mengambil program untuk mengkonfirmasi identitas pengguna situs.

    Tanda cek yang muncul dalam profil seorang pengguna menandakan bahwa identitas orang tersebut mungkin telah diverifikasi. Mengklik tanda cek itu akan memberikan lebih banyak informasi. Akses ke informasi ini dapat terbukti berguna dalam menilai risiko saat membentuk hubungan online baru.

    Tujuan mengkonfirmasi identitas anggota adalah untuk meningkatkan saling kepercayaan di seluruh situs ini, terutama di antara para pengguna yang tak saling mengenal secara pribadi.


  • 8.2 - Bagaimana identitas profil saya bisa diverifikasi?

    Verifikasi Identitas halaman pendaftaran memberikan dua cara agar identitas Anda diverifikasi.

    Satu cara untuk memverifikasi identitas Anda adalah menemui--secara langsung--anggota staf ProZ.com, moderator atau anggota yang telah diberikan hak untuk memverifikasi identitas. (Senarai nama yang diberi kuasa memverifikasi identitas ada di dalam formulir pendaftaran. Hanya pertemuan tatap muka yang akan dipertimbangkan).

    Cara lain untuk memverifikasi identitas Anda adalah melakukan pembelian dengan kartu kredit yang menggunakan nama yang sama dengan yang tertera pada halaman profil Anda. Jika Anda membeli keanggotaan situs, identitas Anda akan diverifikasi secara otomatis apabila semua persyaratan dipenuhi (lihat 1.7 di bawah). Jika Anda mau identitasnya diverifikasi tanpa membeli keanggotaan, Anda bisa melakukan pembayaran kartu kredit sebesar 5 dolar AS sekali saja dan tidak bisa dikembalikan. Pastikan bahwa kartu kredit tersebut menggunakan nama Anda, dan nama Anda ada pada profil di bawah "Nama asli" (baik Anda memilih nama asli Anda terlihat atau tidak kepada yang lainnya).

    Saat ini tak ada cara lain untuk memverifikasi identitas Anda, termasuk dengan faks, dll.

    Catatan: Saat ini hanya pembayaran langsung dengan kartu kredit dan Paypal yang diterima untuk tujuan verifikasi identitas.


  • 8.3 - Apa batasan waktu untuk program VID?

    Perlu beberapa bulan untuk memverifikasi identitas dari prosentase signifikan komunitas ProZ.com. Hingga saat itu, tak ada keuntungan khusus yang akan diberikan kepada para pengguna dengan identitas terverifikasi.

    Begitu sejumlah signifikan profil telah diverifikasi, tanda cek akan muncul tidak saja di halaman profil, tapi juga di poin-poin di seluruh situs ini.


  • 8.4 - Mengapa identitas saya tidak terverifikasi lagi?

    Jika Anda mengubah nama depan, nama tengah, atau nama belakang dalam profil Anda setelah identitas Anda diverifikasi, maka verifikasi identitas Anda akan dicabut. Untuk mendapatkan verifikasi ulang, Anda perlu mengirimkan permintaan dukungan.


  • 8.5 - Bagaimana saya bisa diverifikasi di powwow?

    Agar identitas Anda dapat diverifikasi di powwow oleh anggota yang memiliki otoritas untuk memverifikasi identitas, Anda harus menunjukkan identifikasi yang dilengkapi foto kepada orang tersebut saat Anda bertemu dengannya secara langsung.

    Seperti metode VID lainnya, nama pada kartu identitas Anda harus sesuai dengan nama asli yang Anda masukkan dalam profil Anda. Tapi tak seperti metode VID lain yang dilakukan oleh staf situs, Anda juga harus memilih untuk menunjukkan nama asli Anda di situs. Jika tidak anggota itu tidak bisa melihat nama Anda dan membandingkannya dengan nama yang ditunjukkan pada kartu identitas Anda. Setelah Anda diverifikasi, Anda boleh memilih untuk menyembunyikan nama asli Anda lagi jika mau.

    Anda bisa mengedit nama asli dalam profil Anda dengan memilih "My ProZ.com->My Settings->Personal Data" dari menu.

    Anda bisa memilih untuk menyembunyikan atau menunjukkan nama asli dalam profil Anda dengan memilih "My ProZ.com->My Settings->Basic Profile" dari menu.

    Begitu Anda telah menunjukkan nama asli Anda di situs, bertemu seorang anggota dengan otoritas memverifikasi ID dan menunjukkan kartu identitas Anda yang dilengkapi foto kepadanya, Anda bisa mengirimkan permintaan kepada orang tersebut untuk memverifikasi identitas Anda di situs. Untuk melakukannya, pergilah ke halaman aplikasi VID.

    Pada aplikasi VID, pilih opsi "bertemu langsung", dan pilih nama orang yang Anda temui dari daftar pemilik otoritas memverifikasi ID. (Jika nama orang itu tidak ada dalam daftar, maka dia tak memiliki otoritas.) Lalu masukkan tanggal dan lokasi pertemuan Anda, dan kirim formulir itu. Orang tersebut akan menerima permintaan email untuk memverifikasi identitas Anda.


  • 8.6 - Bagaimana saya bisa diotorisasi untuk memverifikasi identitas pengguna lain?

    Jika identitas Anda sendiri sudah diverifikasi, Anda bisa melamar otoritas untuk memverifikasi pengguna lain dengan menyerahkan permintaan dukungan.


  • 8.7 - Saya sudah membayar dengan kartu kredit tapi belum diverifikasi identitasnya.

    Ketika permintaan verifikasi ID diserahkan menggunakan pilihan pembayaran, nama dalam profil Anda di bawah "Nama Asli" harus persis sama dengan nama pada kartu kredit atau akun Paypal Anda.

    Proz.com menggunakan informasi ini untuk mengesahkan bahwa nama yang Anda masukkan dalam profil Anda sama dengan yang Anda gunakan dalam kartu kredit atau akun Paypal Anda.

    Jika ada alasan informasi dalam kartu kredit atau akun Paypal Anda tidak sama persis dengan yang ada dalam profil Anda, identitas Anda tidak akan diverifikasi.

    Anda akan mengerti bahwa verifikasi ID adalah masalah yang sangat sensitif, karena ProZ.com memberi kesaksian kepada seluruh komunitas bahwa Anda benar-benar orang yang Anda katakan, itu sebabnya kami memerlukan konfirmasi kartu kredit tentang identitas Anda.

    Harap dicatat bahwa pada saat ini hanya pembayaran kartu kredit langsung dan Paypal yang diterima untuk tujuan verifikasi identitas.


  • 8.8 - I received a message stating that my identity could not be verified. Why?

    If you have a "Translation company" account type, your identity will not be verified. Since the purpose of confirming members' IDs is to increase mutual trust across the site, in particular among users who don't know each other personally, only "Freelancer", "Freelancer and outsourcer" and "Student" accounts will be considered for ID verification.

    Also, if you applied for verification using the payment method and the name on the account you are using to pay does not match the name in your profile (or you have not entered any name in your profile), then your identity will not be verified.

  • 9 - Rates

  • 9.1 - Bagaimana saya memasukkan tarif saya?

    Tarif dimasukkan dari halaman pengubah profil (klik di sini). Pada bagian 6, "Tarif default", Anda dapat memasukkan tarif Anda, mata uang dan visibiliti, dan juga menerapkan informasi ini ke semua pasangan bahasa yang ada di profil Anda. Begitu tarif default Anda dimasukkan, Anda juga dapat mengedit masing-masing tarif pada setiap pasangan bahasa Anda.


  • 9.2 - Mengapa ini penting bagi saya?

    Menetapkan rentang tarif Anda membuat klien lebih mudah mempertimbangkan kerja sama dengan Anda. Jika menetapkan rentang tarif Anda, Anda tidak akan terganggu dengan pemberitahuan pekerjaan di bawah nilai minimum Anda. Anda juga akan mampu membandingkan tarif Anda dengan data tergabung dari profesional lainnya yang bekerja pada pasangan bahasa Anda.

    Selain itu, dengan menentukan rentang yang ingin Anda terima, Anda memberikan informasi berharga yang dapat digunakan untuk mendidik klien. Contohnya, jika klien ingin mengumumkan pekerjaan dengan tarif 0,001 sen per kata (tarif yang sangat rendah), ia akan melihat tampilan data yang menunjukkan persentase profesional yang bersedia bekerja dengan tarif seperti itu. Ini membantu menghilangkan tawaran yang tidak masuk akal.


  • 9.3 - How do I enter rates for each language pair reported in my profile?

    You can enter language-specific rates by visiting your Profile updater and clicking on "Edit rates" next to each language pair in the Languages section. A window will pop-up allowing you to enter custom rates for each language pair.


  • 9.4 - Can I report any surcharges, discounts or minimum charges aside from rates?

    Yes. You can report rate conditions through the Rate conditions page.


  • 9.5 - How can I show / hide rates in my profile?

    You can set visibility permissions for your rates in the Financial section of your Profile updater.


  • 9.6 - Apakah tarif minimum dan tarif target itu?

    Anda akan diminta memasukkan tarif minimum dan tarif target.

    Nilai minimum adalah tarif minimum mutlak yang Anda ingin terima untuk setiap tugas penerjemahan. Anda tidak akan menerima pemberitahuan pekerjaan apabila data tarif yang diminta pada pekerjaan itu di bawah tarif minimum Anda.

    Tarif target adalah tarif yang Anda minta apabila Anda menerima tugas penerjemahan yang cocok dengan kriteria berikut:

    * Anda familier dengan bidang subjek
    * Tidak menimbulkan biaya tambahan bagi Anda (biaya perjalanan, perangkat lunak, kamus, dll)

    Tarif target Anda adalah tarif yang mungkin Anda cantumkan pada CV atau situs web pribadi Anda untuk dilihat oleh calon klien.


  • 9.7 - Where can I include any sucharges, discounts, or minimum charges?

    You can list any adjustments you tend to make for special conditions when invoicing here.


  • 9.8 - Mengapa saya harus memasukkan tarif?

    Keuntungan menentukan rentang tarif:
    (1) Menentukan rentang tarif membuat klien lebih mudah mempertimbangkan kerjasama dengan Anda
    (2) Anda tidak akan terganggu dengan pemberitahuan pekerjaan di bawah nilai minimum Anda
    (3) Anda bisa membandingkan tarif Anda dengan data agregat dari profesional lainnya pada pasangan bahasa Anda.

    Juga, dengan menentukan rentang yang bisa Anda terima, Anda memberikan informasi berharga yang dapat digunakan untuk mendidik klien. Contohnya, jika klien akan mengumumkan pekerjaan dengan tarif 0,001 sen/kata (tarif yang sangat rendah), ia akan melihat tampilan data yang menunjukkan persentasi profesional yang mau bekerja dengan tarif seperti itu. Ini membantu menghilangkan tawaran yang tidak masuk akal.


  • 9.9 - Saya baru mulai menjadi penerjemah lepas. Berapa tarif yang harus saya tetapkan?

    Tarif yang Anda kenakan tergantung pada pemasukan yang Anda kehendaki, produktivitas Anda, jumlah liburan yang akan Anda ambil dan faktor-faktor lainnya. Gunakan kalkulator tarif untuk melakukan perhitungan dasar.


  • 9.10 - Apakah merupakan keharusan untuk memasukkan tarif?

    Anda tidak harus memasukkan informasi tarif. Juga, bahkan jika Anda memilih untuk memasukkan tarif, Anda tidak harus menampilkannya sehingga bisa dilihat orang lain.

    Jika Anda merasa tidak nyaman memasukkan rentang tarif tertentu, pertimbangkan untuk membuat catatan pada halaman profil yang berbunyi "Tarif hanya untuk keperluan perkiraan semata, dan dapat berubah setelah mempelajari pekerjaan."


  • 9.11 - Berapa tarif yang banyak diminta? Dapatkah saya melihat data agregatnya?

    Anda dapat melihat tarif yang dimasukkan di komunitas ProZ.com pada halaman ini atau dengan menggunakan tautan "Lihat tarif" pada menu. Pembatasan:

    • Tersedia untuk anggota Situs saja
    • Tersedia untuk 'Penerjemah Lepas' dan akun dengan tipe 'Penerjemah Lepas dan Perusahaan
    • Anda harus masukkan tarif Anda
    • Anda dapat melihat tarif Anda hingga 5 pasangan bahasa


    Ini adalah contoh keluaran tarif:


  • 9.12 - How is my maximum rate calculated?

    Your maximum rate is calculated automatically based on the minimum rate you entered in your profile. It is 2.5 times the minimum rate. Note that as with all rates you enter, a lower or higher rate can always be negotiated after you are chosen to complete an assignment.


  • 9.13 - Saya telah memasukkan tarif saya, tetapi saya masih menerima tawaran pekerjaan dengan tarif di bawah tarif minimum saya. Mengapa demikian?

    Tidak semua pekerjaan memenuhi format "[X] per [kata|jam|total] dalam [mata uang]". Beberapa pekerjaan menggunakan satuan baris, bukan kata, pekerjaan jangka panjang atau tetap terkadang mempunyai persyaratan harga yang berbeda, dan seterusnya. Untuk mengakomodasi kondisi yang berbeda-beda ini, pemberi kerja diberi pilihan memasukkan harga untuk pekerjaan dalam format standar, atau menggunakan kotak teks format bebas untuk memasukkan harga. Pada pekerjaan yang menggunakan format bebas, sistem tidak dapat memeriksa tarif, jadi Anda akan menerima pemberitahuan untuk pekerjaan itu, meskipun pekerjaan tersebut di bawah harga minimum yang Anda tentukan.

    Mohon dicatat bahwa nantinya, pemberi kerja akan mendapatkan insentif dengan memasukkan harga dalam format standar, dan apakah yang dimasukkan adalah harga standar atau tidak, akan menentukan penerima pemberitahuan

  • 10 - WWA (Willingness to Work Again) or translator feedback

  • 10.1 - Apa itu WWA?

    Sistem WWA adalah fitur ProZ.com yang memungkinkan para penerjemah, juru bahasa dan penyedia jasa lainnya sarana untuk meminta, mengumpulkan dan menampilkan di profil mereka umpan balik “kesediaan untuk bekerja lagi” (“WWA”)dari para klien dan kolega.Pengguna situs dapat meminta umpan balik dari para outsourcer dan kolega yang mereka pernah bekerja. Para kolega dan outsourcer dapat menanggapi permintaan itu dengan menyediakan umpan balik. Mereka juga dapat mengambil inisiatif untuk menyediakan umpan balik umum untuk penyedia jasa yang mereka pernah bekerja untuk.WWA page menyediakan antarmuka khusus bagi mereka yang ingin meminta atau menyediakan umpan balik WWA..


  • 10.2 - Masukan WWA terdiri dari apa saja?

    Masukan terdiri dari tiga bagian:Pernyataan dari outsourcer menyatakan "kesediaan untuk bekerja lagi" (dengan menjawab "ya" pada pertanyaan "Apakah Anda bersedia kembali memberikan pekerjaan pada penyedia jasa ini?”)Teks pendek menyertai “ya” (opsional)Satu baris tanggapan dari penyedia jasa untuk outsourcer (opsional)


  • 10.3 - Apa gunanya masukan WWA?

    Pemilik profil memiliki opsi untuk menunjukkan umpan balik ini di sudut kanan atas dari profil mereka untuk menarik calon klien yang mengunjungi halaman-halaman profil.Penerjemah atau juru bahasan yang memilih untuk menampilkan masukan WWA “ya” dari para klien terdahulu yang puas, mungkin dapat menempatkan diri dalam posisi yang mengubah para calon klien menjadi klien yang sebenarnya, untuk memberikan dasar yang kuat untuk harga yang di atas rata-rata, dan untuk mengurangi perlunya melakukan tes penerjemahan, dll.Memiliki masukan WWA adalah salah satu kriteria pencarian yang dapat digunakan oleh calon klien untuk mendapatkan pekerja bebas di direktori ProZ.com.Umpan balik ini juga berguna bagi para outsourcer untuk menanggulangi resiko ketika mendapatkan penyedia jasa yang baru.


  • 10.4 - Apa syarat-syarat untuk masukan WWA dapat dimintakan dari/dibuat oleh outsourcer?

    Outsourcer sebelumnya harus pernah menugaskan paling sedikit satu pekerjaan yang dibayar kepada penyedia jasa. Masukan WWA tidak boleh berdasarkan test penerjemahan atau interaksi pendahuluan lainnya.Istilah “outsourcer” digunakan secara luas di sini untuk merujuk pada siapapun yang memberikan pekerjaan yang dibayar. Ini termasuk bukan saja perusahaan-perusahaan bahasa dan para pengguna akhir, namun juga para penerjemah dan jurubahasa yang mengirimkan pekerjaan kepada para kolega ketika mereka sedang sibuk.Seorang outsourcer hanya dapat menyediakan satu masukan WWA untuk setiap penyedia jasa yang telah bekerja bagi mereka. Namun demikian, manajer proyek yang berbeda dari perusahaan yang sama dapat menyediakan umpan balik bagi seorang penyedia jasa yang telah mengerjakan proyek-proyek mereka.


  • 10.5 - Can I request feedback from different project managers I have worked with in the same company?

    Yes.


  • 10.6 - How can I help identify the maker of a feedback entry?

    When possible, a translator feedback entry includes a link to a ProZ.com profile or Blue Board record that represents the person who gave the feedback. This information can be helpful to others when determining how much to rely on a particular feedback entry.

    If the person was not logged in when giving feedback, you can help to identify them by finding a Blue Board record or ProZ.com profile with which they are associated, and then submitting that information in a support request. (Staff will attempt to corroborate it based on email address and other information.)

    If you have worked for the outsourcer who gave a feedback entry, you can also help by making an entry in that outsourcer's Blue Board record.
    When you identify a matching Blue Board record, submit that information in a support request. ProZ.com staff will attempt to verify the association, either by matching the email address of the person who gave the feedback, or by contacting the Blue Board record's primary contact for verification.


  • 10.7 - Apakah saya perlu profil ProZ.com untuk memberikan entri WWA?

    Ya, sekarang ini hanya mereka yang terdaftar dengan ProZ.com dapat membuat masukan WWA. Keputusan ini adalah berdasarkan umpan balik yang kami peroleh, berdasarkan kemungkinan penyalahgunaan yang terbersik, bahwa para anggota akan merasa lebih nyaman dengan disyaratkannya pendaftaran.Di masa yang akan datang hal ini dapat saja berubah kalau ditemukan cara-cara yang dapat diterima oleh semua pihak.


  • 10.8 - Apakah “ya” merupakan satu-satunya kemungkinan jawaban terhadap "kesediaan untuk bekerja lagi" yang ditanyakan kepada para outsourcer?

    Untuk sementara waktu diputuskan untuk meminta pengguna situs untuk membuat masukan hanya bagi para penerjemah dan juru bahasa yang mereka bersedia untuk bekerjasama kembali. (Dengan kata lain, tidak mungkin membuat masukan “tidak” dan “mungkin” sebagai respon terhadap pertanyaan, “Apakah Anda bersedia untuk bekerja kembali dengan orang ini?”). Pendekatan ini dimaksudkan untuk mengatasi kekuatiran dari beberapa anggota mengenai kemungkinan penyalahgunaan, yang memungkinkan perhatian diarahkan pada peranan utama dari fitur ini, yaitu pemasaran.Di masa yang akan datang, untuk meningkatkan integritas (dan pada gilirannya, efektifitas pemasaran dari sarana ini), jawaban “tidak” dan “mungkin” dapat disediakan bagi mereka yang membuat masukan WWA. Kalau hal ini mengkhawatirkan, harap diingat bahwa sejumlah perlindungan akan disediakan, dan disamping itu, masukan WWA hanya dapat dilihat oleh orang yang mendapatkan masukan. Tidak akan pernah ada keharusan untuk membuat masukan WWA terbuka untuk umum.

  • 10.13 - Apa opsi saya soal visibilits masukan-masukan WWA saya?

    Informasi WWA ditampilkan di bagian sudut kanan atas dari profil Anda. Ada tiga pilihan visibilitas informasi ini:

    a) Entri hanya dapat dilihat oleh pemilik profil.

    Ini adalah tampilan standar. Semua profil dimulai dengan pengaturan ini.

    Inilah cara fitur akan tampak di profil baru yang belum mendapatkan entri WWA:



    Setelah mendapatkan entri WWA, Anda akan melihat ini:



    ...sementara pengunjung akan melihat:



    b) Entri dapat dilihat oleh pengunjung.

    Kalau Anda memilih untuk klik pada tombol “Perlihatkan pada pengunjung”, Anda akan melihat:



    Dan sekarang pengunjung pada profil Anda akan dapat melihat entri:



    Mengklik pada angka entri akan membuka kotak yang memuat informasi detil mengenai entri yang akan ditampilkan.

  • 10.14 - Can I display client feedback and testimonials elsewhere in my profile?

    Yes. The Project history provides the option to gather and display client and collaborator feedback on specific projects. Some translators also choose to select and reflect some client feedback in other sections of their profile, such as the About me section. Note that displayed feedback not collected through a system like the WWA system may be subject to requests for verification by site staff, in the interest of transparency and of protecting the integrity of the feedback system.


  • 10.15 - Apakah fitur ini juga dimaksudkan untuk menguntungkan para outsourcer?

    Ya. Para outsourcer yang memilih untuk mempertimbangkan data WWA bisa mendapatkan bahwa mereka mampu untuk menyeleksi para penerjemah dan jurubahasa dengan lebih efisien.


  • 10.16 - Bagaimana WWA dapat sekaligus menguntungkan penyedia jasa (para penerjemah dan jurubahasa) dan para outsourcer?

    Hubungan antara penerjemah/outsourcer adalah sebagai rekanan, bukan musuh. Jikalau sistem WWA menghasilkan siklus kerjasama yang lebih cepat, lebih kurang tes penerjemahan, dll., hal ini merupakan hal yang bagus, baik bagi outsourcer maupun para penyedia jasa.Blue Board adalah contoh lain dari sarana yang menguntungkan baik penyedia jasa maupun outsourcer. Para outsourcer yang terdaftar dan mendapatkan masukan positif mendapatkan tingkat kepercayaan yang lebih tinggi dan siklus mulainya proyek yang lebih singkat di antara para penyedia jasa yang merujuk pada Blue Board.


  • 10.17 - Bagaimana mengenai kerahasiaan? Saya tidak boleh/tidak bersedia mengungkapkan nama-nama klien saya.

    Sekarang ini, setiap masukan mencakup nama klien (tidak ada cara untuk menerima masukan anonimus). Karena itu Anda harus menahan diri dari meminta masukan dari para klien yang dengannya Anda memiliki kesepakatan atau anggapan kerahasiaan.


  • 10.18 - Saya tidak memiliki perjanjian kerahasiaan, namun saya tidak menghendaki orang lain tahu saya bekerja untuk siapa. Bagaimana saya mencegah para klien saya diungkapkan?

    Anda tidak perlu berbuat apapun. Secara default, masukan-masukan WWA tidak akan nampak pada profil Anda. Anda bebas memilih untuk menampilkan atau tidak masukan-masukan WWA. Yang Anda dapat kontrol adalah apakah "semua" masukan akan ditampilkan atau tidak. Anda tidak dapat secara khusus menolak menampilkan masukan WWA secara individual.


  • 10.19 - Bagaimana dengan keinginan para anggota untuk mencegah orang memberi masukan WWA tanpa diminta?

    Adalah mungkin untuk mengundurkan diri dari jejaring BB/WWA. Demi keadilan, karena para pengguna ini tidak menerima masukan tanpa diminta, mereka juga akan menahan diri dari memberi masukan kepada orang lain (baik melalui sistem WWA, atau Blue Board.) Bisa dikata mereka melepaskan hak mereka untuk membuat masukan bagi orang lain sebagai ganti tidak memberikan hak kepada orang lain untuk membuat masukan bagi mereka.Opsi ini tidak mencegah penerimaan umpan balik LWA di Blue Board, dan tidak menyebabkan umpan balik yang sudah ada terhapus. Para pengguna yang menarik diri masih dapat memberi masukan bagi orang-orang lain yang meminta mereka melakukan hal itu.


  • 10.20 - Kalau saya menarik diri dari WWA, para calon klien mungkin akan berpikir bahwa saya tidak mau menampilkan WWA karena saya bukan penerjemah yang baik. Apakah mungkin untuk membuat catatan di profil saya untuk menjelaskan bahwa saya memilih untuk tidak menggunakan fitur ini demi untuk melindungi klien atau semacam itu?

    Tentu saja, Anda dapat menambahkan komentar semacam itu.


  • 10.21 - Apakah ada pengawasan dari staf dan/atau moderator?

    Masukan-masukan WWA diteliti oleh pada anggota staf sebelum ditampilkan, bukan untuk memastikan akurasinya, namun hanya untuk memastikan bahwa fitur tsb. digunakan sebagaimana yang dikehendaki. Para anggota staf juga siap, atas permintaan melalui sistem dukungan, untuk meninjau kembali dan menyelidiki masukan-masukan yang dapat dipertanyakan dan kemungkinan penyalahgunaan.Para moderator tidak terlibat dalam penanganan sistem WWA.


  • 10.22 - Apakah fitur WWA terbatas pada para anggota?

    Pada awalnya semua aspek dari sistem umpan balik tersedia bagi semua pengguna situs tanpa memandang status keanggotaan. Di masa yang akan datang, adalah mungkin untuk membatasi penggunaannya oleh mereka yang bukan anggota, seperti misalnya membatasi jumlah masukan yang dapat dibuat untuk mereka atau ditampilkan oleh mereka.


  • 10.23 - Outsourcer says no invitation was received. What can I do?

    If an outsourcer to whom you sent a translator feedback request says no request was received, check that the email address used is correct. Also, you can suggest the outsourcer to check the spam folder of their email inbox and send a reminder message as described here.

    If no message is finally received, you can suggest the outsourcer to provide feedback directly by clicking Give translator feedback in your profile.


  • 10.24 - Dalam pembaharu profil cepat saya WWA ditandai sebagai tidak lengkap walaupun saya sudah mendapatkan masukan. Mengapa?

    Pemutakhiran profil cepat akan menampilkan WWA (merupakan item yang ‘dianjurkan' daripada ‘diharuskan’) dengan lengkap hanya bila entri tersebut telah diterima dari seorang agen outsourcing yang memverifikasi identitas atau telah mendapatkan paling sedikit satu entri Blue Board dari pengguna situs lainnya. Persyaratan ini dimaksudkan untuk mencegah penyalahgunaan sistem WWA.


  • 10.25 - Bagaimana saya bisa mendapatkan tanda hijau kelengkapan untuk WWA dalam profil saya.

    Untuk mendapatkan tanda "kelengkapan" dalam area WWA di profile, Anda perlu setidaknya satu entri dari profil yang memenuhi setidaknya satu kondisi ini:

    a) memiliki identitas yang terverifikasi
    b) memiliki catatan Blue Board dengan setidaknya satu entri dari pihak ketiga
    c) bergabung ke anggota situs
    d) memiliki setidaknya 12 PRO poin KudoZ


  • 10.26 - What does the message received line mean next to the clients' names that I requested WWAs from?

    The message received line that appears in your WWA request entry form next to the client that you requested a WWA entry from is just an email confirmation message to inform you that the email you sent them was received in their inbox.

    Now, you will just need to wait for the outsourcer to respond.


  • 10.27 - Tanpa sengaja saya memasukkan komentar WWA untuk penerjemah yang salah. Bagaimana saya dapat menghapusnya?

    Silahkan kirimkan tiket dukungan dan menunjukkan masukan yang salah itu.


  • 10.28 - I received translator feedback from an outsourcer I have never worked for. What should I do?

    If you are sure that the entry you received has been posted by an outsourcer you never worked for, please submit a support request and specify the entry.

    Remember that some outsourcers' profile names are different from their Blue Board titles or their company names. Make sure the outsourcer is not using a site name different from their company name and that you have not worked for this company in the past.


  • 10.29 - How can I edit a feedback comment/reply?

    In special cases, staff will edit comments accompanying translator feedback entries or replies to entries at the poster's request.

    To have a feedback comment or a reply edited by site staff, please submit a support request and specify the entry in which the comment / reply should be edited and the desired new text for the comment / reply.


  • 10.30 - The outsourcer I am looking for does not show as part of search results. What can I do?

    If you are looking for a specific outsourcer and they do not show as part of search results, make sure you are looking for the outsourcer's profile name (the name shown in their profile).

    Note that Blue Board titles are not always used as profile names by outsourcers. In cases in which the Blue Board title and the outsourcer's profile name are different, conducting a search for the Blue Board title will not produce any results.

    Also, make sure the outsourcer you are looking for has a profile at ProZ.com. Some outsourcers with Blue Board records may have removed their profiles or may have not created any profile for their company. Remember that outsourcers must have an account with ProZ.com to submit WWA feedback.


  • 10.31 - Where can I see translator feedback statistics?

    To view feedback statistics, go to the translator feedback stats page.


  • 10.32 - Can a user receive translator feedback from family members or close associates?

    Translator feedback should not provided to family members or close associates, in order to maintain a certain level of transparency in the feedback system.

    See also general site rule 2 for more on why this policy may be enforced.

    Jika Anda memilih opsi "Saya memilih tidak memasukkan Riwayat Proyek saya sekarang" bidang yang berhubungan akan dinilai "lengkap" dari sudut pandang kelengkapan profil.

    To update your CV, go to the Personalization section of your Profile updater and scroll down to the CV/Resume section. Click on Delete next to the CV you want to update. Once removed, upload the new version of your CV by selecting the language in which your CV is written from the Upload another CV in the drop-down menu and clicking on the Browse button to search your computer's file system for the document you wish to upload.

    Once you have chosen the document, check the agreement box and select a visibility permission for your CV. Finally, click on the Save and update profile button.

    Make sure your CV is in .txt, .pdf, .doc, .docx, or .rtf format, and is no larger than 250 KB. If you are a full member your CV may be up to 2 MB large.

    Also, remember that ProZ.com uses multiple webservers to handle user traffic. When you upload anything via the Profile Updater page, it may take several minutes to become visible.


  • 13.4 - How do I remove an old CV?

    To remove your CV, go to the CV/Resume section of your Profile updater and click on Delete next to the CV you want to delete.


  • 13.5 - How can I delete my resume/CV/photo?

    In your profile page, go to Settings. In the menu, choose Uploads. There, you will find a check box with the title Delete current image or Delete current Resume/CV. After checking it, click on Submit.

    Your photo/resume will be deleted. Please, remember that it might take several minutes to see the results.


  • 13.6 - The CV/resume file I uploaded to my profile is accessible from outside ProZ.com

    When you upload a CV/resume file to your ProZ.com profile, you must assume that the information it contains will be visible on the web —and that your file may be downloaded by anyone— unless you set visibility permissions when uploading it (i.e. unless you specify that you do not want anyone, except for other ProZ.com members, to access your CV/resume file).


  • 13.7 - I deleted my profile/CV but Google still shows it.

    You should ask Google to delete that information from their Cache. You can do it here.

    Remember that in your new profile, in the Settings-Search Engine Settings, you have the option Profile Indexing. You might select Index if you want search engines to store a snapshot of your profile page and, No index if you do not want search engines to store a snapshot of your profile page. If you selected Index (default option), that information is stored in Google's cache and we just don't have a way to prevent Google from saving it.

    Also, note that we've just recently started the full removal of CVs. We original simply "un-linked" them from a profile in the event that someone did not actually intend to remove his or her resume. As our user base has expanded, this has lead to higher resource usage so we've started to completely remove them. From here on, if you remove a CV from your profile, it will be deleted from the ProZ.com servers within 15 minutes.

    Note: You should assume that information you display in your CV will be indexed by search engines. If you choose to remove your CV later, it may take some time for this indexed information to also be removed from search engine caches.

  • 14 - About me

  • 14.1 - Can I use HTML code in the About me section of my profile?

    Yes. You can customize the About me section in your profiles by adding HTML code and some dynamic content such as instant messaging tools, clocks, hit counters, etc. Check the quick guide for creating ProZ profiles using HTML code tutorial to obtain some special effects.


  • 14.2 - How can I localize the content of the About me section of my profile?

    You can localize the content of your About me and other profile areas through the Profile localization tab. You can also get to this page by clicking on Localize your content in the Settings tab of your profile.

    Note: English version will not require localisation as it is a default language of ProZ.com, hence there is not ProZ.com version localized into English. You can add text for About me section in English directly from your main profile page by clicking on a pad and pencil icon.


  • 14.3 - There are extra line breaks in my profile and I can not get rid of them. What should I do?

    Here is why: every line break entered in the profile background form gets converted into a br tag in the html. In order to prevent the large spaces, you can not enter line breaks (by hitting enter) after your td and tr tags. This is not pure HTML, and we did it so that those without HTML experience could make reasonable profiles. Sorry for causing this confusion.

  • 15 - Availability calendar

  • 15.1 - What is the availability calendar?

    Your ProZ.com availability calendar lets you indicate to potential clients your approximate availability to take on new work. It is shown in your profile page and in various other places throughout the site.


  • 15.2 - What is the value of indicating my availability?

    Outsourcers with urgent projects can search for those who have indicated they are immediately available for new work. Specifying that you are available helps you appear in these searches. On the other hand, if you are currently busy, indicating that you are not available can help prevent you from being contacted with such requests. It can also be helpful to give potential clients and collaborators a rough idea of what your upcoming schedule looks like.


  • 15.3 - How can I specify my availability?

    Specify your availability in your availability calendar, reachable by clicking the small round availability indicator icon next to your name at the top of each page, or by clicking here.

    To indicate your availability on a specific date, click that day in the calendar and a dialog will prompt you to specify your availability. For example, if you're completely available for the work day on the 25th, select 100% Available. If you're only partially available for half the day, select Partially available (50%).

    To specify availability for several days at once, click and drag with your mouse to select multiple days.


  • 15.4 - How is capacity used in the availability calendar?

    When you set your average sustainable capacity in words per day (WPD), your availability calendar will also automatically display approximately how many words you can process on any particular day.

    When estimating your productivity using WPD, assume that you won't be using a Translation Memory. Your burst rate WPD should be an estimate of a one-day maximum for projects with tight deadlines when you have 100% availability.

    If you prefer not to express your productivity for others, consider entering rates for your own purposes and leaving them visible only to yourself. Future features (planning, etc.) may allow you to make use of these.


  • 15.5 - How are working hours used in the availability calendar?

    Your standard working hours and time zone are displayed at the top of your availability calendar, along with information about differences between your time zone and the person viewing your calendar.

    In addition, if the Consider me unavailable outside of working hours option is selected in your calendar settings, an indication of your remaining availability for the current work day can be automatically adjusted as your day progresses (see below for details).


  • 15.6 - What is Availability remaining in current work day, and why is it different than the availability specified in my calendar?

    If the options Consider me unavailable outside of working hours or Consider me unavailable on weekends are selected in your calendar settings, your availability remaining in the current work day is automatically calculated, and shown above your availability calendar. For example, if you specified that you are 100% available today, and that you have a capacity of 3000 WPD, when your work day is half over your Availability remaining in current work day will indicate Partially available (1500 words).

    This adjusted availability is shown above your availability calendar and in your profile page, in addition to the availability you have specified for that day. It is not currently reflected in other availability indicators or searches, though this functionality may be added in the future.

  • 16 - Profile tabs

  • 16.1 - My Visitors tab

  • 1.1 - What is the Visitors tab?

    The Visitors tab is for members only. The Visitors tab works like a hit counter, but does so much more than a traditional hit counter. The Visitors tab allows profile owners to keep track of how many hits they've received in the last 30 days, but it also provides information about who, what, where, and when their profile was visited.

    Note: The Visitors tab does not indicate who exactly visited your page by username or entity ID. Likewise, when you visit a user's profile, they will not be able to see your username or entity ID on their Visitors tab. This tab only shows the viewer type, for example an agency, or freelancer, or both.


  • 1.2 - What are the options to display crawlers' visits at the Visitors tab?

    The Visitors tab provides the following options for site users to filter the crawlers' visits results:


    • List by visitor
    • List by each visit
    • List crawler visits

    These options displayed at the bottom of the Visitors tab.

    Also, users can hide visitors information by clicking on [ Hide this visitor ] in the Action column. To restore a hidden visitor's visibility click on List excluded visitors button (at the bottom of the page), find an IP of a hidden visitor you want to make visible again and click on [ Remove this visitor ].


  • 1.3 - Who has access to my Visitors tab?

    No one other than you (the owner) has access to your Visitors tab.

    Note that the Visitors tab is for (paying) members only.


  • 1.4 - Does the Visitors tab count my own visits?

    No. Presently, the Visitors page does not count your visits when you come to your profile page.


  • 1.5 - Will anyone see my username or entity ID on their Visitors tab?

    The Visitors tab does not indicate who exactly visited your page by username or entity ID. Likewise, when you visit a user's profile, they will not be able to see your username or entity ID on their Visitors tab. The Visitors tab only displays the viewer type. Also, the Visitors tab will indicate whether the viewer is a site member (highlighted in blue), ID verified, and the viewer's IP address, which can be used to locate the visitor geographically. Finally, the Visitors tab will indicate where the viewer came from, tabs viewed, last time visited, and the the total number of times the visitor has been to your profile page.


  • 1.6 - Will anyone be able to link to my profile page from their Visitors tab?

    No. The owner will not be able to link to your profile page form their Visitors tab. The owner will only have access to your IP address, which will enable them to locate you geographically.


  • 1.7 - Someone is coming to my visitors tab multiple times, should I be worried?

    Those visits are probably coming primarily from a search engine crawler, which is what goes out and spiders the internet for pages to be searchable.The visitor you had those multiple visits from is actually MSN, Yahoo or Google. So basically, no need for alarm, a machine is visiting your profile numerous times, not a human.

    If you'd like to find out some more information about this, feel free to take a look at this forum thread.


  • 1.8 - What can I find out with the IP Address?

    When you click on the IP address under the column on your Visitors tab you'll be redirected to the Geobytes website, which will enable you to locate your viewer geographically.


  • 1.9 - What does the checkmark under the viewer type signify?

    The checkmark under the viewer type signifies that visitor has been ID verified. Some of your visitors may or may not be ID verified; therefore, not all visitors will have checkmarks in that column. To find out more about getting ID verified, please read FAQ #8 in this section (Profile Page).


  • 1.10 - What does it mean by Viewed?

    The Viewed column indicates which tabs the viewer clicked on in your profile, or in other words, pages viewed of your profile. Presently, only three or less tab visits will be shown in this column.

    Note: Due to the number of subpages/tabs on the site, there may be entries in your Viewed column that you don't recognize or understand. However, overtime, with more use of the function and more development, we will be able to identify those better in the near future. Thanks for being patient.


  • 1.11 - What exactly does the Came From column identify?

    The Came From signifies what page the viewer used to locate your profile. Whether they searched you on Google or clicked on your featured pro profile from the homepage, you'll see it under this column.

    Note: Due to the number of websites and site pages on ProZ.com, there may be entries in your Came From column that you don't recognized or understand. However, overtime with more development and use of the function we will be able to correct that problem. Thanks for being patient.


  • 1.12 - How do I add a hit counter to my profile page?

    There are many sites that offer hit counter code that you can put into your profile page to track and display how many people visit you.

    Please refer to the About me section on the new profile page, then paste the HTML code for your hit counter.

    You can edit a custom tab name any time you want, by going back in to the Custom tabs section of your profile from the Settings tab; and clicking on the edit icon next to the tab name you want to change.

    Note that the About me section of your profile is not a separate tab (you could make a tab dedicated to about me-related material, of course). While the content is customizable, the name of the About me section is not.


  • 2.5 - How do I add an image to a customised tab on my profile?

    To show an image in a custom tab (a scanned copy of a certificate, a photo, etc.), first you will have to upload the image to an image hosting website such as http://www.imagehosting.com/ or http://imageshack.us/.

    Once your image is uploaded to these websites, they will provide you with a direct link to your image. Copy that link/URL and insert it in the following HTML formula:

    <img src=" HTML HYPERLINK ">

    Note that the direct URL/link to your image must be preceded by the tag <img src=" and followed by the tag ">.

  • 18 - Dynamic profile content

  • 18.1 - Why might some ProZ.com profiles include user-supplied dynamic content (javascript)?

    Some users have chosen to customize their ProZ.com profiles with dynamic content such as instant messaging tools, clocks, hit counters, etc. This dynamic content may be implemented in a scripting language such as javascript, which can be run by the viewer's web browser.


  • 18.2 - What are the risks of accepting dynamic content (i.e. running javascript) from a profile owner?

    Although such content is common on the internet and is likely harmless, there is a possibility that security risks may be involved. For example, a cross-site scripting attack might allow the profile owner to gain unauthorized access to the viewer's ProZ.com account. (See this cross-site scripting article on Wikipedia for details.)

    Because of this potential security risk, user-supplied dynamic content is only enabled in profile pages when the viewer has given permission.


  • 18.3 - How is dynamic profile content handled by ProZ.com?

    If a ProZ.com profile contains dynamic content, a notice is shown at the upper-right of the page, indicating whether the dynamic content is enabled or disabled.

    If the profile owner is a ProZ.com member, the viewer is given the choice to see the profile with or without the dynamic content.

    If the profile owner is not a ProZ.com member, the dynamic content is always disabled.


  • 18.4 - How can I control whether dynamic content is enabled when I view a profile?

    If the profile owner is a ProZ.com member, the first time you view the profile you'll be prompted whether to enable the dynamic content. Your preference will be stored in a cookie in your web browser, so you won't be prompted again when viewing that member's profile in that browser. If you later wish to change your preference, and enable or disable the content, click the Settings link in the dynamic content notice at the upper right of the page.

    Your preference applies only to that one member's profile. You have a separate preference setting for each member's profile with dynamic content.

    For reasons of security, there is no way to enable the dynamic content if the profile owner is not a ProZ.com member.


  • 18.5 - How can I add my instant messenger status to my profile?
