I didn't know where to post this.

I am wondering where I can post a small translation of an article I recently translated. I would like people to critique it at their leisure. I cannot find any place online that does such a thing. doesn't seem to allow full texts, just words, phrases and sentences.

Any help, please. I'd greatly appreciate it.

Yes, it is well hidden Nov 1, 2014

I actually suggested its creation, and the nice people at ProZ went to all the trouble of doing so, but no one is using it.

Thank you very much Nov 2, 2014

Thank you, Sheila! I appreciate it.

I have a short literary translation that I've done. It'd be neat to have it scrutinized by professional translators for fun. And, as you know, these type of translations are super hard to do. Getting the exact meaning over in natural-sounding English is no easy feat. These texts require a lot of "scientific" creativity (art + science).

Well-hidden issue Nov 2, 2014

If it is well-hidden how can people know about it and use it? No wonder no one uses it; I myself never knew about it, i.e. that such a feature existed so never used it. It must be handy for new entrants, thanks to Philgoddard who suggested it but no thanks to Proz who kept it hidden.
