    Hello. Lately when I have been checking out foreros' profiles I notice under occupation the following line: Internacionalista de profesión. Actualmente doy cursos de capacitación empresarial y estoy en proceso de certificación como 'Coach' The first time I believed it was true but then I observed it was added to profiles of many different people who obviously aren't all business coaches or even speak Spanish. I wonder what has caused this??? You may want to look into it.

    Thanks. Can you give me an example profile?

    Hello Mike. Yes, of course. We'll try your profile. :D

    That is quite strange. I don't see the same thing. Try a different web browser to see if you see it there.

    My suspicion is that some sort of malware is inserting it, but why?

    Mike: just to say ~ I don't see merquiades' extra line in your profile when I've got "English(US)" selected in the language chooser at the bottom of the page. But I do see it if I select "Español"....

    ADDED: I've just checked with other languages selected. It only happens with Spanish.

    Hi. The exact same phenomenon has reappeared with this sentence: I was born in Córdoba, Argentina. I graduated as an English translator at UNC (Universidad Nacional de Córdoba) many many years ago... so WR is my way to refresh my English and it helps me keep learning. I'm married and have three daughters.

    It's the same as before. I don't see it with when the "Language Chooser" is set to English, but the line suddenly appears when it's set to Español.

    I can't see what you say, and I'm using Spanish language on the forum.

    I don't see it anymore either. It seems likely that Mike fixed it. :)

    I forgot to post! Yes, I fixed it.

    It has partially been fixed. The sentence is gone, and is now just a :. I guess it should state Biografía:. It looks like Mike is on it.

    Just a colon? :(

    Somebody qualified, please go here [link removed] and provide the Spanish translations, and post here when you have done it.

    He's right. This is from my profile, switched to 'Español':
    There shouldn't be a line-space there.
    (I made the colon red.)
    Added: It occurs to me that the colon was added back after Mike removed the line. I checked my profile then, and I believe that I would have noticed the extra space if it had been there. Of course, I may be mistaken.

    (The colon is gone now.)

    Thanks, Merquiades. I just submitted the changes, so they should be visible now.
