    Unauthorized directory listings on another site-- thanks to everyone who reported this and took action 11/16/2014

    It was reported that directory listings from some ProZ.com users had been published on lingvopoint.com. The site mentioned is no longer available.

    There is no indication that the information involved was private, but rather information available publicly in profiles. Most of the members who reported this issue indicated that the republished material was a mixture of public profile information and fabricated details. It was also been reported that the publicly visible information on some job postings had been republished on the site mentioned.

    ProZ.com staff have taken steps to make sure the republished material is taken down and not posted again (as have others who have posted in this thread). Steps are also being taken to ensure a more rapid response to an issue like this in the future.

    Technical safeguards already exist that prevent certain types of this "scraping". However, the scraping of publicly displayed information is not something that can be prevented entirely. It is the ProZ.com site team's responsibility to what it can in instances like this to have material removed when it has been republished.

    If you become aware of an instance of republished material, please report it to site staff. The fastest way to reach staff is through the support system.

    The Warsaw Pact Debate 10/07/2008

    The Warsaw Pact Debate is a panel discussion about managing the relationship between translation agencies and freelance vendors. The panel discussion will be the finale of the TM-Europe 2008 Conference on October 10th at 4.30 PM CET. Andre Pellet of Proz.com will be chairing the debate and a panel of three representatives of translation agencies of different size (Lionbridge, Magit, Welocalize) and three freelance translators with a lot of experience and interesting opinions. Opposite them we have the conference participants and the on-line audience. There are a lot of issues to be discussed and all the ingredients for a very lively debate are there. However, we are also hoping that this proves to be a very positive discussion on how agencies and vendors can openly talk about their problems and sometimes conflicting needs, with the aim of seeking consensus and working together to develop the whole industry and promote standards and best practice rather than simply focusing on their differences. We will be running a live webcast of this debate on-line with an option to submit questions and comments to the moderator both before and during the debate itself. In order to join this debate you should register free of charge at http://www.tm-global.com/resources?q=node/13 and you will receive the access details prior to the webcast by email. On-line participation facilities are limited so please register soon to book a place. You can submit questions and opinions before the debate by sending them to conference@tm-europe.org and marking your email “Warsaw Pact Debate”.

    Announcing the Justin Chlebus Memorial Scholarship 09/02/2008

    It has now been one year since ProZ.com staff member Justin Chlebus passed away. He had just turned 22. To honor Justin's life and on the occasion of his birthday, a scholarship program is being created: the Justin Chlebus Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship program was kicked off this weekend with an in-person event among Justin's friends and family in Syracuse. This event was first and foremost a celebration of Justin's life among the people who knew and loved him. It also served as the start of fund-raising efforts for the scholarship program. Several thousand US dollars were raised toward the fund. More information about the program, and the possibility to donate, is available via this page: http://www.proz.com/justin-chlebus-memorial-scholarship For now, donations are being accepted only via Paypal. Your generosity in memory of the great person we have lost, and for the promising young people that the scholarship will hopefully touch, will be appreciated.
