...will ask for a test, no matter the length of the job they are posting.


Not the first time I have seen this agency do the same here. They don\'t seem to keep the translator\'s name in their database for they will come on and off always looking for \"somebody\" to handle a short text...

I wonder why they work like this.

The original English in that 'sample' text could stand re-working Mar 19, 2002

Greetings.


May one observe that the original English in that \'sample\' text could stand re-working and editing for consistemcy in style (esp. re the mixture of passive, imperative and active).


HTH.


Regards to all.

I didn't bother... Mar 20, 2002

Indeed, for a 200-word job they post a 50-word sample! That\'s 1/4 of the job they get for free.


I know I didn\'t bother and in fact, not a lot of people did. icon_wink.gif
