The Blue Board is a ProZ.com feature which provides translators, interpreters and other service providers with a means of entering a number from 1 to 5 representing their Likelihood of Working Again (LWA) with a given outsourcer (ie. client or translation company/agency). By way of explanation, the service providers can also enter a line of text along with the number. In response, the outsourcer may enter a line of text of their own.
Service providers may make one entry per outsourcer per year--provided that they have worked for the outsourcer again before adding an additional entry. Multiple entries may not be made on the basis of a single experience.
Outsourcers who are listed and have received positive entries report a higher degree of trust and shortened project launch cycles among those service providers who reference the Blue Board.
