Some of the KOPRA pages are available in English only, even if I choose an other language. Why don"t you provide all pages in every of the six languages you offer?
You"re right, English is the dominant language of www.kopra.org. We decided to offer some of our pages in English only when we worked on the new website. Especially those pages we need to update often (e.g. the meetings pages) are written mostly in English to reduce our daily workload and to minimize the error rate. Anyway, we try to offer as many content as possible in six languages for your convenience. As KOPRA is located in Germany, a majority of KOPRA"s staff has a German mother tongue - we kindly apologize for any mistakes in the English or other versions...

We’ve found a job offer at www.kopra.org that isn’t up to date. We’d like to delete the recruiting ad. Unfortunately, we can’t find it in our account. What can be the reason for it?
Does your company maybe have several KOPRA accounts which were set up by different employees over a longer period of time? In this case you might see an outdated job offer online and you might not be able to find it in your account. Please write us an e-mail with the link to the outdated offer. We will gladly send you the login information for the other account or handle the offer for you.
To avoid this situation, we would like to suggest you to have only one KOPRA account and share the user name and password among your colleagues. Out of technical reasons we unfortunately cannot offer a multi-user account for a single company.
Due to employee turnovers, we have several KOPRA accounts. Is it possible to transfer the job advertisements of these accounts?
Unfortunately, we are not able to transfer your job or internship offers from one account to the other. In case you would like to keep all offers in one account you would have to type in the respective offer again in the new account. If you wish to delete unused accounts please feel free to contact us via e-mail.
How do we proceed if we use a ready-made application form in our company?
Due to technical reasons we are sorry that it is not possible to post an individual application form within your job advertisement. Please state your email address or a link in your offer where the applicants may request for your individual application form from.
