New ProZ.com translation contest: "Bon voyage" Participate now!



Hi, all!

I'm happy to announce that ProZ.com has opened a new translation contest, "Bon voyage". And you can choose to translate from three different source text (in English, Spanish and Portuguese) about travel. Submissions are open until February 27th!

Submit your entry here »

Who can participate?
Entry submission is limited to ProZ.com members in pairs in which the member population is large enough to support competition (the complete list is available in the contest page). In pairs other than these, any registered user can submit an entry. Rating and voting on entries submitted by others is open to all registered users.

How about a source text in X language?
ProZ.com translation contests depend on the collaboration of participants in many aspects--voting, commenting, submitting entries, and also in finding suitable source texts in various languages (especially languages in which no member of the site team is native). You can help ensure source texts in a variety of languages for future contests by proposing a text in your native language here.

Happy translating,

Discussion about 21st translation contest: "The tides of tech" in English to TamilResults of ( English- Tamil )translation contest

I think considering that the participants have spent valuable time, it is worthwhile to announce the results to the extent it is possible. There are seven finalists. Even if the entrants can know their relative position, it will be good. It ts very disappointing to know that the results cannot be announced because of sufficient peers have not expressed their views. In the worst scenario, I even suggest the staff of Proz.com should do the review and announce the results.

Announcing winners for "The Tides of Tech" translation contest!Correction in the English to Greek pair announcement

Dear all,

We are very sorry to say that a mistake was made when declaring the winners for the English to Greek pair. This has now been corrected. Our apologies to both the winner, and the second place runner-up who was incorrectly declared as first place.

Congratulations to you both on your skillful translations, and thank you for participating in ProZ.com translation contests.

Best,
