New edition of ProZ.com translation contests, “The sounds of silence”, starting todayEntries can be withdrawn at any time

Thanks for the clarification -- so, if there are not at least three times as many voters as participants in each phase, that partiular language combination will not move to the next phase. If that happens, can one or more of the participants withdraw their entries during any of the phases, in order to bring the ratio beyond the required threshold?


A participant may withdraw their entry at any time. A withdrawn entry would not necessarily affect the ratio in such a way as to make clear which entries should move to finals, or which entry should win, however.

You are right, membership is required only for the most populated language pairs. I have updated my post to reflect this. Thanks for pointing it out!

The 2014 contest "Celebrations" is still "open" in my language combination due to some mystery quotas that we didn't know about and still haven't met. What are the quotas/requirements for this contest, i.e. what must happen to a language pair for it to move to the final round and have a winner announced?

Once more, please let's keep this thread on topic. Discussions on previous contests should be carried out in the appropriate threads.

None of the ProZ.com contests were ever judged by an impartial panel of experts. It has always been judged by popular vote. The reason is simple: an impartial panel of experts would be too expensive.




What members have said about ProZ.com translation contests

Concursurile m-au învăţat ceva. Pentru mine, ca traducător obişnuit, ele constituie o "oportunitate de învăţare" accesibilă.

Bravo again to ProZ.com for the opportunity it provides to so many translators to have fun, work hard and do things differently and in a different spirit.

This was my first translation contest ever and I didn't expect to win. Taking part in it was already a nice experience! For someone who's relatively new to the translation business, this is like a wish come true.
