Maybe those who bid for a job Eng>Spa offered earlier today (at as low rates, let me add, as USD 0.01/word in PDF format) give the outsourcer a second thought.
If you happen to go to the URL mentioned there, you will be able to read this (pay attention to the part between []):

The Foreword by the author:

About The Author: I am writing four editions of this book: xxxx Edition, xxxx Edition, xxxxx Edition, xxxxx Edition all under the same “yyyy” title. [My motivation to write these books stems from the fact that I] lost my sight and [died while suffering the effects of cancer in 1999].

No further comments.

Payment terms Feb 5, 2006

And at USD 0.01/word you might as well do it for free, at least in this life... but there may be some promise of payment for the next one.

Close to death experience Feb 5, 2006

I think what he means is a close to death experience. He is metaphoric, and having a severe illness is probably and experience where you actually feel death.
So, in reality, he has come back from the death.

Specify very soon payment Feb 5, 2006

After delivery of translation, be sure to specify a very soon date of payment. Either delivery date plus one day, or why not cash payment would be the best or you might have to face years of feud with his heirs...
