No "Purpose of withdrawal" code for translation work Mar 18, 2010

First, the reply to your question.
You can link your bank account in India and request from transfer from paypal to your bank account in India. For that go to My Account > Profile > Add/edit bank account and fill up the details required. (For your information the monthly withdrawal amount will be increased and there is no transfer fees if the withdrawal amount is more than Rs.7000)

Now, Paypal has recently introduced for an additional data to be entered for those who want to withdraw money from their paypal account to their bank account in India. The drop box contains the following 14 choices for the users to select under 6 headings.

Content and Journalism:
1) Freelance journalism
2) Newspaper content
Information Technology:
3) Hardware consulting
4) Software consulting
5) Data processing consulting
6) Travel related purchase
Licensing of creative works:
7) Licensing revenues
Export of Goods:
8) Cross border shipment of goods and services
Other Services:
9) Legal
10) Accounting and tax
11) Business and PR
12) Advertising and market research
13) R&D
14) Architectural, engineering and others

I don't see translation. What would be the nearest match for the translation work from the above options. None of the above comes close to translation. We can't select any option at our will as this might be linked to the tax deduction during the audit. Can proz users in India share their views on what "Purpose of withdrawal" code they are using.
