We are excited to announce that the current translation contest, “The Tides of Tech”, is moving into the hybrid phase today, which will go on until October 25th. This means that:
- Pairs with more than seven entries will move to a qualifications phase to determine the finalists.
- Pairs with three to seven entries will move straight to finals.
- Pairs with less than three entries will either go to extended submissions.
ProZ.com translation contests are a community-driven activity, and the qualifications function on double-blind peer reviews. It's your rates and votes that will determine which ones are the best translations among those submitted. If you work in any of the pairs in qualifications or finals below, please help select the finalists or determine the winners by rating or voting on your colleagues’ entries.
To the 544 participants in 64 different languages who submitted their entries, thank you! Taking part in this linguistic challenge takes as much confidence as it takes skill, and we are incredibly happy to see the community coming together to participate in this event. We wish you the best of luck as we enter this new stage of the contest!
And, to everyone who participates by rating and voting, thank you for lending the community a little bit of your time and, of course, for your invaluable insight. This contest wouldn't be possible without you all!
Some notes on entry rating:
- You can rate as many or as few entries as you like. It is not necessary to rate all of the entries in a pair if you do not want to.
- Rating is anonymous. As opposed to tagging (likes and dislikes on an entry), raters are anonymous.
- Ratings are what help determine finalists. Tags ("likes" and "dislikes") can be helpful feedback on an entry, but the ratings on entries for "Quality of writing" and "Accuracy of translation" are what determine finalists.
- Participants with an entry can rate entries, too. Experience has shown that this does not negatively affect the outcome, and participants are also in a unique position to provide feedback on entries, since they have worked on the same text and are familiar with the challenges involved.
- Every rating helps. Even if you only rate a few entries, every little bit helps to determine finalists and is valuable feedback for those have submitted an entry.
- You get 30 browniz points for every entry you rate.
