Dear collegues,



please be sure to check the Blue board before accepting.

The more so as the outsourcer sent us 2 3 page files for test translation and it seems to be a case when whole translation is to be done as test translations by various translators.

This subject has been discussed... May 12, 2003

and must continue.

Search 'translation tests' and you will be taken to many postings regarding this issue.

The never-ending discussion regarding site abusers has focused on askers, but dishonest oursourcers who seek free translations allocating a whole translation as "translation tests" are more than abusers.

Since not every single proz.com member reads these postings or is aware of the situation, this type of abuse repeats once and again.

Perhaps we should suggest Henry to create on the main page a link to this issue. Translators many times accept translation tests hoping to get jobs and earn their pay, but then are those who hide behind this site for their dishonest practices.
