Discussion & feedback?! Feb 17

As it has shown, Entry #31706 has gained the highest scores. I don't know why winner has not yet announced. There is nothing to discuss!

Finalists could not be selected in this language pair Feb 17

Hi Hesam,

Thank you for your interest in ProZ.com translation contests.

Please note that the language pair "English to Persian (Farsi)" did not move from qualifications phase to finals, since finalists could not be determined in this language pair. The rating points do not determine winners, only voting points during the finals phase do. The purpose of rating points is to select finalists during the qualification phase and to provide feedback to entry authors.

Hi Hesam,

Thank you for your interest in ProZ.com translation contests.

Please note that the language pair "English to Persian (Farsi)" did not move from qualifications phase to finals, since finalists could not be determined in this language pair. The rating points do not determine winners, only voting points during the finals phase do. The purpose of rating points is to select finalists during the qualification phase and to provide feedback to entry authors.

Language pairs that received a large number of entries (more than 7) are placed in a qualification round to ensure that an appropriate number of entries reaches the finals. Voters are asked to rate entries in two categories: "Quality of writing" and "Accuracy of translation", and the 3-7 entries that receive the highest scores will pass into the final round. However, a minimum voting ratio has to be reached in order to determine finalists, which is automatically calculated by the system. In English to Persian, as well as in other language pairs that did not receive enough ratings, this ratio was not reached and finalists could not be selected.

I hope this explains! Please let me know if you have any other questions. You can also learn more about ProZ.com translation contests here: https://www.proz.com/faq/153482#153482
