When I happen to post a translation job I try to insert a reasonable chunk of text to give as much information as possibile on the content and I often have to reduce it to a very short sample. It would be helpful to have an indication of how many characters are allowed, next to the window "Sample text".
Has any of you had a similar experience? Do you feel this info would help when posting?

Many thanks in advance for your contributions on this topic.

Kind regards,<

Sample text field has a 500 characters limit Jun 1, 2010

Hi Mirella,

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. The sample text field in job postings has a 500 characters limit. I will see that this is clarified in the job posting form.

Thanks for your patience.

Regards,

Lucia
