Why is the middle name not displayed?

Perhaps it is a bug in ProZ.com's software that disallows it to display names that are shorter than a certain number of characters, or names that contain non-alphabetic characters. Your middle name is "M." (according to your résumé), so it is both very short and contains a fullstop.

My middle name is Monica. I entered my full name into the 'Profile Updater', where my identity has also been verified.


 
Hmm, okay Jun 5

1. Oh, I see it, yes. Even on my profile page's profile updater, there is an option to enter my "middle name", and I'm not even located in a country that uses middle names.

Then perhaps you should ask the moderator to move this post to the Suggestions subforum, because I'm sure there would be other translators who would also want the option to have their middle name displayed in more places.

2. FWIW, your profile page's HTML title does contain the "M" (though without a fullstop).

Verification Jun 5

My guess is that the middle name is used only for verification purposes to prevent confusion with similar first and/or last names. I'm afraid that there will be just as many people who would like their middle name mentioned as people who would not want it - it could be seen as a breech of privacy.

Work-around Jun 5

Have you tried the work around of entering your first name as "Marina M." or "Marina Monica" in the 'first name' field?

Marina has asked the moderator of this forum to move the thread to the Suggestion subforum Jun 6

I don't know why Marina has selected an inclusive format for this thread, because she is only able to write two posts.
So, she wanted me to let you all know that she has asked the moderator of this forum to move the thread to the Suggestion subforum.
IMHO a middle name isn't that important...


 
I have the same problem since the beginning Jun 6

I cannot enter my middle name, after trying many times I gave up, should you find a solution, please let me know:)
