Excellent! (Even though a little bit long.) Apr 24, 2015

The analogy gets the point across perfectly. The directions are stated clearly. In a nutshell, it's almost perfect. Great job making an eye opener for newbies.

Of course, perfection is unattainable. In software engineering, we usually say that you can't make anything foolproof, because fools are too smart. But this one's as close as you can get.

My only concern would be to make it a bit shorter, if possible. Or maybe divide it in a few chapters about each particular top

I´ve just watched it carefully. It´s an excellent guide to know what I´m doing at Proz. It helps me to evaluate my self on the track. Over all, what I need to look more closely at and work through accomplish the task more efficiently. Thanks Proz.

Excellent video Sep 10, 2015

The video presentation is excellent. It shows, very clearly, how one can be found (a needle in a haystack?) To be taken seriously... The only thing I didn't get is the KudoZ matter. What's a KudoZ? I'm new to the forum, please forgive my ignorance...

Kudoz is a place where other translators post questions about translating specific terms. The rest of the Proz body can answer those questions and provide suitable translations. If your suggestion is selected, you receive Kudoz points, which increase your ranking in the directories. You can find this part of the site under the Terminology tab.

Hope that helps

KudoZ is a community-based terminology network made out of two broad areas:

1. "help" KudoZ, http://www.proz.com/kudoz/
2. "glossary-building" KudoZ, http://www.proz.com/?sp=kog_glossary

KudoZ points --the points that help you to improve your position in the directory-- are points that you can earn by answering KudoZ help questions and getting those answers selected by askers.

For details about KudoZ, KudoZ points and the relationship with directory ranking, I invite you to check the following resources:

Hope it helps!

Kind regards,

Lucia

Edited to add: Thank you, Triston!

Great stuff! Would appreciate more reference to CV Sep 11, 2015

The story and cartoon really capture the viewer's interest. Video continues to get the message across in carefully ordered topics. However, I would like to have more reference to what to write in a CV - e.g. how detailed is it to be? For example,should one refer to experience of jobs other than translating? Does one need to give tiny details of job locations which are not translating jobs? Does one have to list hobbies?
