| Just talk to them || Dec 7, 2005 |
Personally, I would try to talk it over with them on the phone (if needed, use VoipBuster to eliminate call costs). That kind of question is tricky. Only once did I work with an agency that had clauses like a) and b), and they used b) whenever they could, even when their reviewer had no clue as to the target terminology to use! Still, it might mean nothing, and I'd say you'd better talk to them personally if you depend - or are planning to depend - on them.

I would steer clear of anything that allows them to "charge back" to the translator "unreasonable" time spent revising (after all, it is the agency that has the sole power to evaluate such time spent and whether or not it is "reasonable"...I doub't they'd give you any input on this).
Definitely not the kind of company I'd want to work with. I understand the need to protect yourself, but carefully vetting and choosing translators is part of the agency's job and I don't see why all of the responsibility should fall on the translator.
