Fire Safety Brochure



English>Arabic

English>Chinese

English>French

English>Korean



Bidders must live in: United States



Details

1821 words about Fire Safety. Translation must be extremely accurate for legal reasons. Must be prepared in Word in a font readable by Word 2000, Windows 2000. Translator must have fax, email and accept US business check for payment. Translator may need to provide font files for consistency.



Bidder requirements



Quick turnaround appreciated. Possibility of future projects for exceptional performance and user-friendly demeanor.



Pricing:

55.00 USD total



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



This comes to US$0.03 per word (ridiculous) for something which may have legal implications, and must be extremely accurate and on a rush basis!



Simply answer to those kinds of ads, telling them the REAL price they should expect to pay for this kind of service. We have to educate people as some are really ignorant about prices and others, well, try to take advantage and find a sucker who is desparate etc...



If we all reply telling them that something like this is worth at least 5 X more per word, then they will see that they have to revisit their budgets!

Nobody in Japan works this cheap, especially interperters !

In fact the simplest menial tasks would pay at least more than twice what\'s quoted here.
