This is not a new problem, but I have just seen a posting for a translation from English into Spanish.Total word count:

15.920 words. Total payment: Euros 400. That is about 0.02/ word. Outrageous!



This kind of postings should be banned from the site. Is there anything we can do about this?



Thanks,

Bertha
