Q: How do I access my profile?

Q: I want to edit my profile and want to select multiple languages/language combinations/entries in the dropdowns.
A: Keep the CTRL key pressed while selecting the desired options. Editing your profile is best done on a desktop device.
Q: I edited my profile, but I don’t show up in the “Find a Linguist” or “Find a Corporate Member” results.
A: You need to check the checkbox at the top next to “Make Your Profile Visible to the Public.” Further, new members need to be approved by the administrator. Profiles are only shown in search results for approved members who choose to make their profiles visible.
Q: I edited my profile and received a “You have reset your password” message even though I did not reset my password. Now I cannot log in, help!
A: Unfortunately, some browsers’ autofill functionality interferes and fills in the password in the “Reset password” section on your profile. You can always reset your password again via email as explained above towards the top of the page. This is a browser issue and has nothing to do with the website. To prevent further occurrences, try a different browser, disable autofill, or check that the password fields are both empty before you save your edited profile.
Q: I only want to show certain information about me, not everything. What do I do?
A: Only the profile fields that contain information will be shown to the public (if the profile is visible). All fields are optional. The section “Professional Information” at the bottom with your contact details will be shown in your public profile. The contact details in the upper section “Account Info” will not be displayed publicly, but please make sure the address in that section is accurate, if you want to receive a hardcopy of Translorial. Otherwise, we are not able to send you your copy.
Q: I entered my address, but it’s not shown in my profile.
A: The section “Professional Information” with your contact details will be shown in your public profile. The contact details in the section “Account Info” will not be displayed publicly.
Q: I can’t see certain pages such as the Translorial archive.
A: Certain pages for members only are hidden behind the member login. If you can’t see them, you are likely not logged in.
Q: Where is the option to renew my membership?
A: Certain pages for members only are hidden behind the member login. You need to log in, then the renewal page can be found under Members > Renew Membership. You can also renew directly from your “My Account” dashboard.
Q: Help! I let my membership lapse. How do I re-join?
