Here are our contestants, in the order of submissions: @Joshua Velasquez tells us how Smartcat has helped him raise his profile as a translator and find new clients: @Hussain Sadeqi shares his story of struggle, refuge, and perseverance, where Smartcat helps him stay afloat in these times of need: @Serena Zilio gives a quirky account of Smartcat’s benefits, including how much beer one can save from not paying license fees Finally, @Igor Kozlov talks about Smartcat’s fuelling his globetrotting lifestyle: Although there’s just four contestants, I thoroughly enjoy the fact that they highlighted Smartcat’s strengths from totally different angles: opening you to new clients, helping in need, saving your money, and working from anywhere in the world. So, whose message appeals the most to you? Vote in the poll above, and let the strongest win! Now, to some rules: You can vote until Sunday, Jan 28, 11:59 pm UTC, after which the voting will be automatically closed. You need a Smartcat community account to vote (which is not the same as our Smartcat account). If you don’t have one, sign up here. You can vote for one contestant only. You cannot change your vote after casting it. Your vote is anonymous to other community members except for forum admins. You are welcome to invite other people to vote in this post. However, and we’re taking your word for this, these should be people related to the translation industry: your colleagues, customers, vendors, and so on. That’s it! Can’t wait to find out the winner, and good luck to all the contestants! I’m locking this topic to avoid discussions that may affect voting results being too close to the voting itself. But you are free to discuss the videos in the original thread. So, Let the voting begin!

You might have noticed that our releases since last July were codenamed according to country phone number prefixes (e.g. 59 → Columbia). We are thinking to change this scheme this year. Propose your ideas here! We'll make sure to mention the winner in the first release notes according to the new scheme ;-) P.S. If you don't have your own ideas, vote for the ones you liked! P.P.S. Just to give a clue, our latest release is numbered 57.3, so the next one will be 58 or 57.4 (depending on how many new features are rolled out), and so on.
