I see yet another English > Thai job announcement with the rate set at .03 --- oops, .0333333333 USD per word. I hope the 20-some bidders who have responded so far have admonished the poster that his finished product is likely to be just as accurate and coherent as the English menu in a back-street Bangkok restaurant. Of such posters, "Verily I say unto you, They have their reward."
