Impractical layout for rating translationsThanks, Julieta

It's good to feel heard!
Impractical layout for rating translationsThank you for your suggestion, Victoria

Hi, Victoria

Thank you for sharing your experience while rating entries. I appreciate your suggestion to make the source text more accesible while reviewing the submitted entries, and I have added this to our backlog of ideas for site improvement, so that it can be further evaluated for possible future implementation.

Have a nice day,

Impractical layout for rating translationsThanks, but...

Of course there are workarounds - one that hasn't been mentioned is sticking the source text into a Word document - but it just seems to me that the website itself could make things easier for us!

Is clicking on the entry number (which opens the entry in a new page) useful for you?

Impractical layout for rating translationsTry this with the translation contests


It's a bit frustrating having to look back for the source text when translating.
But when you start translating, let's say the first sentence (you don't have to finish the whole text), just submit it and when you come back to continue (they say "edit"), both source and target appear next to each other.
That's how I did as I had to complete and then edit my translation for several times.

I hope this is useful,

What members have said about ProZ.com translation contests

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

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

Thanks for the hard work of the ProZ.com personnel, it was a fun contest and the improvements you made to the site were very useful. I can't wait for the next contest!
