I am considering signing up as a translator on the roster for babelfish.com. Any good or bad experiences by any of you? Thanks in advance for any input.

I replied to an ad for them for a Spanish to English position a few months ago. They asked me to do a test translation for them for a video game guide. Against my better judgment, I did this test, even though it was pretty long. I received a reply saying that I had failed the test. I asked for a copy of my results and was told my test had been farmed out and they couldn\'t get it back. I pursued this a number of times and each time got a nasty reply that I had already been told that the test result was unavailable.
