Hello!

Today I received the best offer ever! and I quote "My budget is $4 per each 300 words page" !!! that's $0.013333333333 per word!!! is this for real? ah! I forgot to say ... It's URGENT! and who knows it may be highly technical! Although I got the offer through another website I tried to search for this agency on the blue board here and guess what! seven 1/5 entries! woohoo! I guess its a pleasure to work with these guys! don't you agree? What about you? What's the best (lowest) price you were ever offered? I bet you can't beat mine! Good Luck!!

Ziad

I have better!!!!! Jun 10, 2005

One time, this guy contacted me to do a translation for him, about 100000 words. Since he had forgotten to talk to me about the price, I asked very nicely what the rate would be. His reply was the funniest ever: I thought translators are volunteers! I didn't know I had to pay for your services!
