  • 2 - Powwows

  • 2.1 - What is a ProZ.com Powwow?

    Powwows are informal get-togethers of groups of ProZ.com users living in close proximity. The events are organized by local translators, for local translators.


  • 2.2 - Where does the word 'Powwow' come from?

    The Powwow is a Native American meeting tradition, sometimes involving competitive dance. The word has taken on the general meaning of a social meeting where tasks get accomplished.

    Powwows have been viewed by some as a unifying force, since they are a common cultural element across otherwise diverse tribes.


  • 2.3 - What happens at Powwows?

    Powwows provide an opportunity for networking and informal socializing among language professionals--a chance to meet the people behind the profiles.

    Most organizers offer attendees an opportunity to introduce themselves and make announcements. Sometimes, a theme is selected; examples include: 'CAT tools', 'Literature', 'Free-lancing', 'New Translators'. Sometimes an user volunteers to speak on a topic, and provided there is sufficient interest expressed by others, the organizer may permit this.

    Some organizer have invited representatives from large clients, or CAT tools vendors, to speak or give demonstrations. This has generally been well-received. It is important, however, that the tone of such meetings be informative rather than commercial.

    Some powwows have no agenda and no theme, and that is fine, too. Basically, if you are the organizer, it is your event to create!

    Note: Organizers are required to record the names and IDs of users in attendance. To facilitate this, members are asked to bring their ProZ.com IDs. Users who attend should receive browniz, but that can only happen if they bring their ProZ.com IDs and/or usernames, and the organizer enters them into the online attendance sheet afterwards.


  • 2.4 - من يحق له الحضور

    Anyone who is registered with ProZ.com may attend, regardless of membership status. In addition, spouses, children and guests of members, as well as translators who are not ProZ.com members, are welcome.


  • 2.5 - هل هناك رسوم للحضور

    For now, there is no charge to attend a powwow. However, you will be expected by local organizers to contribute your portion of event expenses. If the powwow is a small coffee or dinner-meeting, it will probably be pay-your-own-way. For larger get-togethers, the local organizer will propose splitting fees related to food, drinks, etc.

    In the future, there may be an attendance fee for non-member registered users of ProZ.com. The fee will be reduced or waived for students.


  • 2.6 - هل أستطيع إحضار أطفال أو ضيوف

    نعم، أفراد العائلة والضيوف مرحب بهم


  • 2.7 - هل سيحضر ممثل عن بروز.كوم

    In some cases, there will be a person empowered to verify identities. Registered users may have their identities verified by displaying photo ID to the designated representatives.

    If you are organizing a powwow, and have had your own identity verified already, you may submit a support request asking for the right to verify the identities of others. You will be asked to confirm that you will only verify the identities of people who you meet in person and who show you photo ID.


  • 2.8 - When is the next powwow in my area?

    This board shows upcoming powwows:
    http://www.proz.com/powwows

    To be shown banner ads of future powwows in your country, be sure to have your country (and home city and region) entered in your profile.

  • 8.1 - كيف أقوم بتسجيل طلب مشاركة

    Check the powwow board for a powwow in your area. Click through to the powwow near you and add your name if you are interested. (You may remove your name at any time, with no obligation.) To attach a note next to your name, enter text into the box before clicking.

    Check back to the board from time to time to contribute to the planning or stay up to date.



  • Main - Top


  • 2.9 - هل سيتوجب علي الحضور إذا قمت بتسجيل اسمي

    Many people who add their names only want to make sure they will be kept informed. As an organizer, you should plan on only 40-50% of those who add their names to attend.

    To get a better idea of exactly how many people will attend (for making reservations, etc.), ask people to confirm attendance in the week leading up to the event.


  • 2.10 - Can I organize a Powwow?

    If you are a ProZ.com member or a registered user with a verified identity, you may propose a powwow in your area by filling out the appropriate form on the powwow page. ProZ.com may or may not approve your powwow.

    If your location is approved, the event is yours to plan. Your responsibilities will include deciding on a place to hold the event (and reserving that place), fixing the date and time, choosing a theme, and sending periodic notices to potential attendees to keep them up to date and involved in the planning.

    You will be expected to take attendance at the event, and to enter that attendance data in the online form after the event is held (click "Enter Attendance" at the top of your powwow page). You are advised to bring to the powwow a printed copy of the paper attendance sheet, to be filled out by powwow attendees.


  • 2.11 - I am organizing a powwow and I'd like to invite more people to attend. How can I do it?

    You can submit a powwow promotion request. To do so click on the "Request promotional email" link at the top of the page of the powwow you are organizing. This will lead you to the page where you can submit your promotion request together with a sample text you can use for the invitation. Note: this feature is only available to powwow organizers

    Powwows can also be promoted on Social Networks such as Twitter and Facebook by clicking on the buttons at the top of each powwow page.


  • 2.12 - I am organizing a powwow and I would like to include an image on the powwow page. How can I do that?

    Please submit a support request and attach the image you would like to include on the powwow page. Please make sure you also include the link to the powwow you are organizing.


  • 2.13 - Should the text of the invitation to my powwow be in English only?

    No. You can use the invitation in English provided as a model and translate it into the language in which the powwow will be held.


  • 2.14 - What happens after I submit my promotion request?

    You will be contacted by site staff with an update of your request status through the support request that is automatically generated after you submit the promotion request.


  • 2.15 - I cannot find the "Enter attendance" link on the powwow page, why?

    The [Enter Attendance] takes 24 hours to appear on the powwow page and it is only visible to the organizer of the powwow. If you are not the organizer, you can contact that person and ask him to enter the attendance.


  • 2.16 - I uploaded my powwow's pictures and nothing happened.

    The pictures you upload to your powwow page may take up to 24 hours to become visible. If after 24 hours you do not see the pictures, please try to upload them again or submit a support request .


  • 2.17 - How are BrowniZ for organizing/attending Powwows awarded?

    The Powwow organizer receives 2000 BrowniZ. Attendees receive 200 browniz.

    In order for the organizer and attendees to receive browniz, the organizer must complete the online attendance sheet. Browniz will be credited within a day of the attendance sheet having been filed.

    Note that several users may be listed as organizers, but only the event creator or primary organizer will be enabled to enter attendance and awarded the corresponding points.

    If there is no official organizer, but someone who attended the Powwow has a completed attendance sheet (or knows everyone that attended), that person should submit a Support Request asking to be allowed to file attendance for the Powwow. They will receive the 2000 BrowniZ for doing so, and ensure that the attendees each receive their 200 BrowniZ.

    It is impractical for ProZ.com staff to enter attendance for individuals. Organizers are relied on to take and report the attendance. If you have not received browniz for a powwow you attended, please contact the organizer of your powwow.

  • 3 - ProZ.com conferences - learning, networking and fun!


    ProZ.com Conferences and Seminars

  • 3.1 - ماهو مؤتمر موقع ProZ.com؟

    مؤتمرات ProZ.com القطرية أو الدولية هي فعاليات مدفوعة تتطلب التسجيل، وهي أكبر
    وأكثر تنظيما من فعاليات باو-واو وتستهدف المترجمين والمترجمين الفوريين المسجلين لدى ProZ.com. يتم تنظيم المؤتمرات من قبل منسق مؤتمر ProZ.com بمساعدة واحد أو أكثر من المنظمين المحليين.

    توفر مؤتمرات ProZ.com الفرص للتواصل الشخصي، والتدريب، والمناقشات، والعروض، والتنمية المهنية والاجتماعية، والتي تندرج في شعار المؤتمر مؤتمرات ProZ.com-التعليم، والتواصل و المتعة !!

    شاهد مؤتمرات ProZ.comبالفيديو !


  • 3.2 - ما هو الفرق بين المؤتمرات القطرية والعاليمة؟

    ان المؤتمرات الدولية تعقد مرة في السنة وتكون أكبر من المؤتمرات القُطرية. ان الجمهور المستهدف هو جميع مستخدمي ProZ.com . نتيجة لذلك، فان المؤتمرات الدولية هي مؤتمرات تخص متحدثي اللغة الانجليزية فقط.

    وتستهدف المؤتمرات الإقليمية في المقام الأول المترجمين الذين يعيشون في منطقة معينة أو يعملون بلغة معينة . ان الجلسات في الأحداث الإقليمية قد تكون باللغة الإنجليزية أو باللغة المحلية، وبعض الجلسات قد تتناول المواضيع التي تهم في المقام الأول الأشخاص الموجودين في المنطقة المحلية أو يعملون في اللغة المختارة. في حين أن أولئك الذين لا يعملون لا في اللغة ولا يعيشون في المنطقة المحلية لن يتم منعهم من حضور الفعاليات الإقليمية، فمن المهم أن يتم إبلاغ الجمهور المستهدف بشكل واضح، بحيث أن من يختار الحضور على أي حال لن يصاب بخيبة أمل.


  • 3.3 - Are all ProZ.com conferences conducted in person?

    No, there are also virtual conferences. Virtual conferences are held online and attended by participants all over the world. For more information about ProZ.com virtual conferences please see the related FAQs.


  • 3.4 - What is a ProZ.com Seminar?


    ProZ.com Seminars are 'mini conferences'. They are typically one day events, smaller, more local than conferences and usually cheaper. They enable participants to go deeper in a given theme/specialization area. They feature 2 to 5 speakers/trainers maxmimum during the day, allowing more in-depth discussions and presentations. The networking and fun aspect of ProZ.com conferences is still present - Seminars end with a powwow.

    Concretely, on the ProZ.com website, there is no difference between Seminars and Conferences. Seminars work exactly like Conferences do - they are listed on the conferences page http://www.proz.com/conference, registration happens the same way, they still have a dedicated page each (with a http://www.proz.com/conference/#event number URL).

  • 4.5 - هل سيتعارض هذا الدور مع عملي كمترجم؟

    في بعض الأحيان، نعم. ويتوقع أن تنفق حوالي100 ساعة في الأنشطة الخاصة بالمؤتمر، وتخطط لتكريس معظم وقتك للعمل أسبوع أو أسبوعين تمهيدا للحدث في اتصالات مع الحضور.

    إذا كان هذا يبدو شاقة، فتذكر أنك لن تكون وحدك. من خلال العمل مع مخطط الأحداث لتنفيذ مشروعاتك الأساسية بصورة مرضية قبل ميعاد المؤتمر, تستطيع أن تقلل من التاثير الفوري لانهماكك بأعمال المؤتمر على حساب عملك المستقل. أكثر من ذلك، قد تجد أن الشهرة التي اكتسبتها بتنظيمك للمؤتمر قد عززت من عملك الخاص بعد انتهاء الحدث.


  • 4.6 - هل يجب علي أن أعد أية خطة مالية؟

    نعم, بالاشتراك مع منسق المؤتمرات


  • 4.7 - ماذا لو ألتزمت ولكن بعد فترة من الوقت أدركت أنني لا أستطيع الاستمرار في تنظيم المؤتمر؟

    إذا أردت الإنسحاب، يرجى إعلام مخطط المؤتمر بأقصى سرعة بواسطة:

    البريد الالكتروني

    ان المنظمين المحليين الغير قادرين على متابعة المناسبة إلى حين إكتمالها لن يتم تعويضهم عن أي عمل قاموا به، فقط ستعاد إليهم المصاريف المنطقية التي أنفقوها خلال العمل بالحدث .


  • 4.8 - أرغب في أن أصبح منظما محليا. ماذا أفعل بعد ذلك؟

    عظيم! كونك منظم محلي يجب أن تكون تجربة مجزية بالنسبة لك. قبل أي تخطيط, يرجلى قراءة "تنظيم مؤتمر بروز.كوم" مادة بعناية. في نهاية المقال ستكون قادرا على المضي قدما إلى الخطوة التالية التي من شأنها أن تأخذك إلى نموذج "اقتراح مؤتمر 'حيث عليك أن تكون قادرا على إرسال اقتراحك الخاص بالمؤتمر. سوف يتصل بك منسق المؤتمرات في غضون بضعة أيام لدى استقباله اقتراحك.

    يرجى تقديم support request لأي سؤال.

  • 8.7 - I purchased a training credit. How can I redeem it?


    ProZ.com offers site users high quality training sessions along with special offers.

    • When a training session is canceled in accordance to ProZ.com cancellation policy. In these cases the credit can be used to sign up for the next available session on the same topic, or be fully or partially redeemed for other ProZ.com training.

    VoIP Best Practices

    If you join the Webinar using VoIP, please note that audio quality can vary based on your audio software/hardware manufacturer as well as your operating system. When using VoIP, the following best practices are recommended:

    • For optimum sound quality, a headset is recommended, preferably a USB headset.
    • If a headset is not available, speakers are required to listen to the Webinar and a USB microphone to speak (if the organizer gives you speaking rights).
    • If using a microphone, it should be at least 1.5 feet away from any speakers built in or connected to your PC.
    • The use of a Webcam microphone is not recommended.
    • If you are unmuted by the organizer, you may need to turn the volume down on your speakers to avoid echo.

    IMPORTANT
    Dropped words, delay or robotic sound during webinar presentation is often due to poor network performance, lack of memory or high CPU usage. Please close all applications you are not using during the presentation.
    For optimum performance when using VoIP, we recommend a broadband Internet connection (see System requirements above)


  • 9.5 - How can I test my connectivity before the online session takes place?

    Visit the GoToWebinar Get Ready page to make sure you are prepared for the webinar.

    You can also run the GoToMeeting Connection Wizard. It tests and determines the ideal connection settings that GoToWebinar can make within your network. After running the wizard, you can store your optional connection settings on your Windows computer and use those settings in the future to connect to sessions.

    1. Please download the GoToMeeting Connection Wizard. The G2MConnectionWizard.exe file should download in your default browser.
    2. Open the G2MConnectionWizard.exe file and run the software when prompted.
    3. When the GoToMeeting Connection Wizard launches, click Next to start the connection test. GoToMeeting's home page should launch in your default browser. If you're not redirected to www.gotomeeting.com, open your browser and go to that page.
    4. Click "OK" to continue. The Connection Wizard will determine the best connection setting for your computer when connecting to GoToMeeting. This process may take a few minutes to complete.
    5. Once the detection process is complete, click "Next".
    6. Then run GoToMeeting by hosting or joining a session to see if the connection settings work properly.

    You will have 3 options:

    • If GoToMeeting now properly connections to the GoToMeeting service infrastructure, click "Next" > Finish to complete the Connection Wizard test.
    • If GoToMeeting now properly connects to the GoToMeeting service infrastructure, but I still experience problems, contact Support Center for further troubleshooting. You may be asked to provide a GoToMeeting Connection Wizard report by clicking Wizard Report.
    • If GoToMeeting still cannot connect to the GoToMeeting service infrastructure, contact Support Center for further troubleshooting. You may be asked to provide a GoToMeeting Connection Wizard report by clicking Wizard Report.

    IMPORTANT: If you are experiencing issues when connecting to your Webinar it may be due to an Internet Security application such as a Firewall. For more reference, check the GoToWebinar article on Optimal Firewall Configuration.


  • 9.6 - After I registered, how do I join the online session?


    At the time of the webinar, open the webinar confirmation email and click the Join Webinar link provided in the confirmation email. If prompted, click Yes, Grant or Trust to accept the download.

    Attendees' microphones will be muted by default and will be in listen only mode in order to limit background noise and improve the experience for all users.

    Join the audio portion of the webinar if you are using telephone to join the session. Audio information is provided in the Audio pane of your Control Panel and in the Webinar confirmation email.
