Main

  • 1 - Zer dira ProZ.com‐eko foroak?

    Aipatutako ProZ.com‐eko foroak ProZ.com‐eko erabiltzaileei interesatzen zaizkien gai jakin batzuen gainean eztabaidatzeko gune irekia da, egitura zehatzik jarraitu gabe.


  • 2 - Zer gauza motak argitara daitezke?

    ProZ.com‐eko foroek itzulpengintzarekin eta interpretazioarekin, ProZ.com‐erkin eta ProZ.com komunitatearekin erlazionatutako gaiez eztabaidatzeko aukera ematen dute. Ez dute beste helbururik. Foroei buruzko definizio zehatzago bat hemen dago.

    Foroetako 11. arauak ezarritakoaren arabera, foroak ez dira erabili behar gunean atal espezifiko bat duten gaiez jarduteko. Bereziki:

  • Terminologia‐laguntza KudoZ atalari dagokio

    Dudarik izatekotan, mesedez bidali Laguntza eskaera bat edo harremanetan jarri moderatzailearekin


  • 3 - Zeintzuk dira foroetako arauak?

    Foroetako Arauak foroetara estekaturik daude. Erabiltzaileek Arau hauek onar ditzakete mezuak argitaratu nahi badituzte.


  • 4 - What should I do if I consider that site rules are being violated in a forum?

    In this case you should refer the issue to the forum moderator or a member of site staff. At the bottom of each forum thread page you will see a little box with the name of the corresponding moderator(s) and a "Call to this topic" link:



    When you click on this link, a small box will open to let you describe the rule(s) violation you perceived in the thread. This is a mandatory field. When you submit this information it will be included in a profile email to be submitted to the moderator.



    You may contact site staff on the issue via support request, in the case of a forum which has no assigned moderator.


  • 5 - Why should discussion of administrative actions be carried out through the support system and not in forums?

    Moderating site forums is not an easy task. Sometimes, moderators may face a situation in a thread that they feel is not correct and that requires immediate action. Also, it may happen that, when deciding on the most appropriate actions to take in such threads, no other fellow moderator is around to check, leading the moderator to take honest and well-meant actions that they consider most appropriate.

    These actions, however, may prove to be incorrect when evaluated later, without the pressure, and this is why contacting site staff to request the re-evaluation of administrative actions taken by moderators is encouraged. Experience has demonstrated that discussing moderators' actions in the forums basically produces more ill feelings without solving the issues at hand.

    Reporting via the support system what may be considered improper actions by moderators allows site staff to look at the issue and provide a "second opinion" that tries to be calm and objective.


  • 6 - Nork erabil dezake foroa?

    Eskuragarritasunaren arabera, lau foro mota daude:

  • Foro irekiak: ProZ.com‐en erregistratutako edozein erabiltzailek erabil dezake mezuak bidaltzeko, eta mezuak edonork irakur ditzake, baita bilaketa tresnek ere
  • Bazkideentzako soilik diren foroak: guneko bazkideak direnentzako soilik.
  • Foro mugatua: moderatzaileentzako soilik.
  • Foro pribatuak: “jabe" bat izan behar dute eta sarbide zerrendan datozen erabiltzaileek soilik erabil dezakete (jabeak zehaztutako zerrenda)


  • 7 - Aztertu egiten dira foroetako mezuak?

    Egiaztatutako bazkideek edo erabiltzaileek foroetara bidaltzen dituzten mezuak berehala agertzen dira.* Gainerakoek bidaltzen dituztenak egiaztatu egiten dira aztertu baino lehen. Mezu gehienak 12 orduren buruan onartzen dira.

    * Beste bazkide batzuk eragin dezakeen interkonexiorako sarbidea aldatu edo baliogabetu egin daiteke ProZ.com taldearen irizpideen arabera.


  • 8 - Nola argitara dezaket mezu bat foroetan?

    Foro batean hari berri bat abiarazteko, foro‐orrialdea bisitatu behar duzu eta "Gai berria argitaratu" estekan klik egin, pantailaren ezkerreko goiko aldean. Ondoren, mezua idazteko leiho bat agertuko zaizu eta "Gaia" jartzen duen lekuan izenburu on bat jarri behar duzu: eremua (orri berean datoz jarraibideak) eta zure mezuaren edukia "Gaiaren edukia: "eremua jartzen duen lekuan. Plazaratu nahi duzun gaia hurrengo helbidean zehazten den "gaietatik at" salbuespenen artean badago ProZ.com‐eko Eremuaren Definizioa 'Mezu hau 'gaietatik at', adb: lan egin baino jolastu." koadroan klik egin.

    Dagoeneko existitzen den hari batean erantzuna bidaltzeko klik egin "Erantzun/ iruzkina" botoian mezu berri bat egiteko edo aurreko mezuan datorren "Aurrekontu batekin erantzun" estekan mezu horri beren‐beregi erantzuteko eta zure erantzunaren barruko koadro batean.


  • 9 - How do I select the forums I would like to see listed on the homepage?

    Go to your forum dashboard and click on the "Homepage forums" tab. There you can select the forums you would like to appear on the homepage.

    To see a brief introduction to the forum dashboard and its features, check out this video.


  • 10 - I have a question I would like to post to the forums. What is the best way to make sure I get an answer?

    Here are some tips to keep in mind when posting a question to the forums:

  • Do a forum search before posting. There are detailed discussions on the forums on many subjects and problems we all have to deal with on a daily basis as translators. Chances are, your problem has already been discussed several times and good solutions have already been suggested. To make a forum search, go to the Community tab; Forum search is the second item from top.

  • Choose the most relevant/appropriate forum to post. There are many forums on the site, under generalized tabs, and users who are not familiar with the forums sometimes post in one of the most visible forums. These are usually moved by moderators to more relevant forums, but sometimes moderators may miss them, too. Result: a thread that would normally draw a lot of attention from the frequent visitors and posters of a technical forum, might sit in a site-related forum for ages without getting a reply.

  • Always try to summarize your main point / request / problem in the title of your thread. Posters are expected to write detailed titles and post in the most appropriate forum. The more detailed your title, the more likely it is to draw the interest/help of those able to respond.


  • 11 - How can I include smilies in my forum post?

    Smilies are keyboard characters used to convey an emotion, such as a smile :) or a frown :( To see a list of smilies and how to make them, just visit the article Smilies & Other Basic Text Formats in Proz.com Forums: Quick Reference Guide.


  • 12 - What is BBCode and how can I use it in the forums?

    BBCode is a variation on the HTML tags you may already be familiar with. Basically, it allows you to add functionality or style to your message that would normally require HTML. You can use BBCode even if HTML is not enabled for the forum you are using. You may want to use BBCode as opposed to HTML, because there is less coding required and it is safer to use (incorrect coding syntax will not lead to as many problems).

    URL Hyperlinking

    You can create true hyperlinks using the [url] code. Just use the following format:
    [url=http://www.totalgeek.org]totalgeek.org[/url]

    In the example above, the BBCode automatically generates a hyperlink to the URL that is encased. It will also ensure that the link is opened in a new window when the user clicks on it. Note that the "http://" part of the URL is completely optional. The URL will hyperlink the text to whatever URL you provide after the equal sign. Also note that you should NOT use quotation marks inside the URL tag.

    Italics and bold face

    You can make italicized text or make text bold by encasing the applicable sections of your text with either the [b] [/b] or [i] [/i] tags.

    Hello, [b]James[/b]
    Hello, [i]Mary[/i]


    Bullets/lists

    You can make bulleted lists or ordered lists (by number or letter).

    Unordered, bulleted list:

    [list]
    [*] This is the first bulleted item.
    [*] This is the second bulleted item.
    [/list]

    This produces:

  • This is the first bulleted item.
  • This is the second bulleted item.

    Note that you must include a closing [/list] when you end each list.

    Making ordered lists is just as easy. Just add either [LIST=A] or [LIST=1]. Typing [List=A] will produce a list from A to Z. Using [List=1] will produce numbered lists.

    Here's an example:

    [list=A]
    [*] This is the first bulleted item.
    [*] This is the second bulleted item.
    [/list]

    This produces:

    1. This is the first bulleted item.
    2. This is the second bulleted item.

    Adding Images

    To add a image within your message, just encase the URL of the graphic image as shown in the following example (BBCode is in red).

    [img]http://www.totalgeek.org/images/tline.gif[/img]

    In the example above, the BBCode automatically makes the graphic visible in your message. Note: the "http://" part of the URL is required for the [img] code.

    Quoting Other Messages

    To reference something specific that someone has posted, just cut and paste the applicable verbiage and enclose it as shown below (BBCode is in red).

    [QUOTE]Ask not what your country can do for you....
    ask what you can do for your country.[/QUOTE]

    In the example above, the BBCode automatically blockquotes the text you reference.



    Note:

  • You should not use both HTML and BBCode to do the same function.
  • BBCode is not case-sensitive (you could use [URL] or [url]).
  • Do not put spaces between the bracketed code and the text you are applying the code to.
  • End brackets must include a forward slash (e.g. [/url] )


  • 13 - Nola jaso ditzaket argitaratutako foro berrien jakinarazpenak (foroen segimendua)?

    Erregistratutako bazkide guztiek jasoko dituzte foro berriei buruzko jakinarazpenak.

    Foroen segimendua Foro segimendu bat egiteko, oro nagusiko orrialdean agertzen diren ezkerreko zutabeko aukerak erabili ('Foroak' esteka menuan,klik egin). Hiru aukera dituzu foro bakoitzarentzat:


    "Hari berriak" hautatzen baduzu, argitaratzen diren gai berrien berri emango zaizu. "Mezu berri guztiak", berriz, gai berri eta argitaratutako mezu guztien berri eman dizu. "Off" hautatuz gero, foro horretako jakinarazpenak desgaituko zaizkizu. Aukeraketa egin ostean, erabil ezazu orrialdearen beheko aldean dagoen Segimendua egiteko botoia aldaketak gordetzeko.

    Hari jakin bat segitu Hari jakin bat segitzeko (foroarena ez den mezua segitzen zaudenean, adibidez, klik egin orrialdearen goiko aldeko "[Segitu haria]" estekan, haria ikusten zaudenean. Segimendua egin daitekeenean,"[Utzi haria segitzeari]" esteka agertuko zaizu, eta horrela, segimendua egiteari utziko diozu.

    Argitaratutako mezuen testu osoa jaso dezaket jakinarazpenetan? Ez. Bandaren zabaltasuna dela‐eta, argitaratutako testuaren pasarte bat soilik jarriko da e‐posta jakinarazpenean.


  • 14 - Foro pribatuak bilaketa tresnek aurki ditzakete?

    Internet erabiltzen duen inork linean zerbait argitaratzen badu jendaurrean betirako ikusgai egongo dela aintzat hartzeko gomendatzen diogu. Ildoari jarraituz, zerbait ahaztu ezean, bilaketa‐tresnek foro pribatu batean argitaratutako mezua aurkitzeko, lehenbizi talde bateko bazkide gisa hasi beharko litzateke saioa, edo bestela, egiaztapen prozesua saltatu. Hortaz, zaila da bilaketa tresnek foro pribatuetako mezuak aurkitzea.


  • 15 - Nola erabakitzen da foroko hari bat orri nagusian jartzea?

    Orri nagusia ProZ.com komunitatearen funtsezko benetako estatua da, izan ere, bazkideen ardura eta denbora eskatzen du neurri handi batean. Lanerako girorik onena ematea xede izaki, ProZ.com‐eko langileek bertan agertzen denaren gaineko kontrol zorrotza daramate (argitaratze‐munduan egin ohi den legez).

    Hautatutako elementuak modu erdi automatiko batean kudeatzen dira. Hari berri gehienak automatikoki ezartzen zaien egoera bati esker (foroaren arabera) orri nagusian agertzen dira. Halere, web guneko bazkide batek hari batekin topo egiten duenean eta, esaterako, eztabaidatzeko gai bat baino laguntza mezu bat denean, mezuaren egoera aldatu egin dezake. Halaber, itxi diren gaiak ez dira agertuko.


  • 16 - What is the RSS feed for forums?

    RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication, a family of Web formats used to publish frequently updated content such as news headlines or blog entries in a standardized format and that allows users to subscribe to it.

    A feed reader is client software or a Web application that is used to subscribe to and collect syndicated web content in a single location for easy viewing.

    You can subscribe to your favorite ProZ.com public forums in your RSS feed reader by clicking the orange button in the forum page to get started.

    You can subscribe using any news reader that you would like. If you encounter any encoding issues or have questions, comments or concerns, please contact site staff via a support request.


  • 17 - Zergatik aldatu da gaia?

    ProZ.com‐eko moderatzaileek eta langileek mezu baten edukia behar beste argitzen ez duten esaldiak alda ditzakete. (Mezuak bidaltzeko eta erantzuteko formularioan dator ezarririk, baita foroko arauetan ere.)

    Zergatik egiten da? Oraingoz, gaiak ProZ.com‐eko orri nagusian ageri dira. Gaizki uler daitezkeen edo ondo osatu gabeko esaldiek ez diote jendeari interesatzen zaizkion gaiak aurkitzen uzten. Gaiaren izenburuak gaiak bilatzen dituztenei bidaltzen zaizkien laburpenen parte dira, eta hari zaharrak aurkitzera laguntzen dute. Horregatik, hain zuzen, garrantzitsua da gaien izenburuak edo azalpenak hari baten edukia ahalik eta gehien adieraztea.

    Gaien azalpen edo izenburuen adibide kaskarrak:

    ‐ KudoZ (arazoa: oso orokorra) ‐ Itzultzaileek irakur dezaten (arazoa: ez du edukia adierazten)

    Gaien azalpen edo izenburuen adibide onak:

    ‐ Kalte‐ordain asegurua ‐ behar dut? Non lor dezaket? ‐ Freelance itzultzaile berriak itzulpen software berri bati buruzko aholkuak behar ditu

    Gaia azaltzeko esaldiak idaztea ez da beti ataza samurra izaten, hortaz, ondo pentsatu idazten duzuna!


  • 18 - Why is the editing option disabled after the first 24 hours since the original forum post?

    This is aimed at preserving the original content of the discussion as much as possible and ensuring that the flow of the discussion works smoothly so that participants in the thread can reply to each other and quote posts whose content is unlikely to change in the future.


  • 19 - Ezin dezaket nire mezua aurkitu.

    Bidali duzun mezu bat aurkitu ezin baduzu, guneko bazkidea ez zarelako da eta horrenbestez, zure ID ez da egiaztatua izan. Beraz, mezuak onartuak izan behar dira agertu baino lehen.*

    Halaber, gerta daiteke zure mezua kategoria batetik aproposagoa den beste batera aldatu izana. Egiaztatu kategoria garrantzitsuenak haria aurkitzeko.

    * Beste bazkide batzuk eragin dezakeen interkonexiorako sarbidea aldatu edo baliogabetu egin daiteke ProZ.com taldearen irizpideen arabera.


  • 20 - Itzultzaile edo itzulpen agentzia txar bati buruzko mezu bat bidal dezaket?

    Noski ezetz. Blue Board bezero jakin bati buruz duzun iritzia emateko gune aproposa da.


  • 21 - Zergatik ezin dezaket foroa erabili besteak itzulpen agentzia txar batez ohartarazteko?

    Pentsa dezakezunez, publikoki kritikatzeak egoera leher dezake, izan ere, dozenaka edo ehunka e‐posta, telefono dei eta zenbaitetan, legearen esku‐hartzea ere eragin ahal du.

    Gainera, erregistratutako milaka erabiltzaile gehiago izaki, ProZ.com ez da 1000 bazkide baino gutxiago izan ohi dituzten antzeko zerbitzuak bezain egonkorra. Horregatik, administratzaile, moderatzaile eta ikusleek xeheki begiratu behar dituzte argitaratutako edozein kritika.

    Asmo oneko zenbait kritika ikusi ostean, ProZ.com‐eko langileek ondorioztatu dute ez dagoela kritikak onartzen duen fororik kudeatzerik, justifikaturik badaude ere. Zio hori dela‐eta, Blue Board eratu genuen‐‐beharrezko informazioa egituratuta eta erraz moldatzeko moduan izateko.

    Baliagarria ote da Blue Board? Bai. Espero dezakezun guztia bertan aurki daiteke? Ez‐‐eta hori ere ez da bere xedea. Baina une oro gabiltza hobetzen, gure negozioaren neurriaren araberako pausuak emanez.


  • 22 - Can I use the forums to denounce a scam?

    Yes, as long as your posts are in line with forum rule #8 . In other words, you can post the emails you received or describe the situation, but no names should be mentioned.

    The purpose of avoiding naming names in a case like this is to prevent possible issues with libel, since the names used in these cases are not always made-up and can be the names of actual, innocent, persons. In general the messages themselves are sufficient to warn other translators.


  • 23 - Finantza‐gaiak eztabaida daitezke?

    Bai, baina bakarrik foroko "diru kontuak" atalean.


  • 24 - Zergatik debekatzen dira gai politikoak eta eztabaidak sor ditzaketenak?

    Gunearen fundetzailearen asmoa ondokoa izan zen: mundu "errealean" gertatzen ari dena gertatzen ari dela, ProZ.com kultura ezberdinetako jendea ‐‐eta horrenbestez, aurkako ikuspuntuak dituztenak‐‐ elkartzeko gunea izatea, hizkuntzaren gainean elkarrekin lan egiteko, eta bakean.

    Horrenbestez, hizkuntzari buruzko ez den mezu guztiak edo *eztabaida piztu dezaketeenak* *berehala* kentzea gunearen politikaren oinarrietako bat izan beti. Guneko eta foroko moderatzaileek ere antzera jokatu behar dute.

    Eztabaida sor dezaketen mezu guztiek politika hori beteko dute, baita moderatzaileen iritzi pertsonala errespetatzen ez badu ere. (Beraz, gai bat ixten edo kentzen denean, ez du adierazten ixten duen pertsonaren ikuspuntu pertsonala.) Mesedez, kontuan hartu moderatzaileak ez daudela une oro lanean, eta orduak edo egunak pasa daitezkeela mezu edo gai bat ixten den arte.

    Badira politikaz eztabaidatzeko bestelako bide egoki batzuk‐‐eta bide horiek gune hau baino askoz eraginkorragoak dira.


  • 25 - Eta hondamendi naturalez edota politikoak ez diren hondamendiez eztabaida daiteke foroetan?

    Bai. Nahiz eta hizkuntzako gaiak ez izan, hondamendi naturalei buruzko mezuak (adb: lurrikarak, uholdeak, urakanak, tifoiak, bero‐boladak, hotz‐boladak, sumendiak, elur‐jausiak, suteak, lur‐jausiak eta gatazka batek eragin ez dituen bestelako fenomeno naturalak) komunitatean jorratzea ontzat jotzen da.

    Hondamendiren bat gertatzen denean, bazkideek informazioa eman dezaten nahi dugu, hartara, hondamendi horietaz arduratzen diren erakunde ezagun eta fidagarrien ahaleginak arintzeko. Esaterako, munduko leku jakin batean lurrikararen bat egon bada, Espainiako bazkide batek, ospe handiko erakundeen bidez, Espainatik bertatik egin ditzakeen borondatezko lanei edo dirua emateko metodoei buruz informa dezake.

    Ondokoa kontuan hartu: ‐ Hondamendi naturalei buruzko mezuak "gaietatik at" izendatu behar dira. ‐ Kutsu politikoa duen hondamendi naturalei buruzko gaiak ezabatu egingo dira, adierazitako iritzia kontuan hartu gabe. ‐ Ahaleginak arintzeko lankidetza pribatua proposatzen duten mezuak ezabatu egingo dira autorea kontuan hartu gabe.


  • 26 - If a forum thread has been locked, does that mean the topic cannot be discussed ever again?

    When a forum thread has been locked, forum rule 6 helps to protect this action and allow a discussion to "cool down". Immediately posting with the intention of continuing the discussion in a locked thread is not allowed, but this does not mean that the topic itself cannot be discussed at a later point, provided it is in line with site rules.


  • 27 - What about freedom of speech? There should not be censorship in the forums.

    The forums are limited in scope and subject to rules. It is important to know that the site rules and scope have been in place for some time now, and they are there and enforced precisely in the interest of maintaining a positive, results-oriented workplace. The only way for this to happen is for those rules and the scope to be enforced consistently, and that is what moderators and site staff do.

    This said, it should be noted that, within the framework of site rules and the aim of those rules, not everyone is going to be able to say whatever they want at ProZ.com. Keeping a positive, results-oriented translation workplace means that posters will not be able to swear, or to talk politics, or make offensive remarks in the forums, for example. There are other places to do that. Everyone has valid opinions, views and statements; but it should not be assumed that ProZ.com can be used to advertise these.

    If you feel you have received rules enforcement action which was not rules-based, please report this to site staff through the support system, where the issue can be properly reviewed. The forums are not an appropriate channel for discussing individual rules enforcement issues.


  • 28 - My posts did not require vetting and now they do. What happened?

    When in doubt, submit a support request and site staff will be able to look into the issue.

    In some instances, a forum vetting requirement may be placed by site staff or moderators. A vetting requirement can be in relation to a rules violation, but this is not necessarily always the case. Rather, the vetting requirement is a safeguard which is used by site staff and moderators to help protect the positive, results-oriented environment of the forums. When it is deemed that this environment is being endangered, the vetting requirement may be used.


  • 29 - Can I request a private forum for discussion/work?

    Paying members may request a private forum be created, and invite colleagues to participate. To do this, just submit a support request, stating the name you wish to give the forum and including the profile numbers of any initial participants you wish to include in the forum.

    Once the forum is created, it will be assigned to the member(s) who requested it, who will act as the private forum owner(s). The forum owner(s) will be able to add other site users to and remove them from the forum. Only the users invited to the forum (and site staff) will be able to see it, and only the forum owners and members can participate in it. Private forums will not be made public.

    Note that private forums are also subject to site forum rules, though in some cases these rules may be interpreted more loosely for the purpose of the private forum. Private forum owners act as moderators in their own private forums and it is their responsibility then to clarify this with all who are invited to participate in the forum.


  • 30 - I have a survey I would like to publish. Can I post it in the forums?

    If you have a survey you would like to publish, and it is within ProZ.com site scope, please contact staff via the support system with the specifics for help. Note that not all surveys can be published.


  • 31 - I posted a topic in the wrong forum by mistake. What should I do?

    Since posting the same topic twice is not in line with forum rules, please submit a support request if you posted a topic in an incorrect forum so that support staff can move the topic to the correct forum.
