And told them what they deserved to be told .
| Have you checked the ratings on this agency? || Jun 13, 2002 |
Because if you would have, then we wouldn\'t have this thread at all.
Given their rating, i don\'t think any professionals will respond to their ad.

Ask any engineer to revise a technical text for you and you will be surprised of the prices (s)he will ask (Recently, I have been asked for revision 1/3 of the total value of a translation), no matter where he/she is based.
Ask any engineering agency or business-consulting agency (of the big 5) to quote you a price and you\'ll be even more surprised. But for professional translation with 5 years of track record, Trados (a tool which is not for free either) such low prices and payment terms go without saying in the translation business. Fortunately, this website only reflects a part of the entire sector.
| Hi 'Williamson' || Jun 13, 2002 |
Just to inform you I moved this topic from \'Business Issues\' to \'Money Matters\'...
Excellent point, though.
By the way, they offer 0.05 $ and I already posted something on these outsourcers in another thread.
