Wonderful! Jul 18, 2013

I think my favourite bit is "specifically learning". You definitely can't get more specific than that.

If it were better, it might be Google Translate going independent.

If you read it out loud Jul 18, 2013

it 'sounds' alright in parts but obviously is basically no since. 'I am portance' may become my new professional motto.

No, thanks! Jul 18, 2013

Over the last year or so, I have received an endless number of shoddy CVs! The result is that I no longer read them and all CVs (good and bad) are immediately binned…

Ditto, only this one caught my eye somehow.

I wish I knew how to stop them, because we never send work out. I have replied to a good 50 asking where they got our details and not one has replied.

From the site linked above Jul 18, 2013

"Thousands of people online are discovering how doing simple translator jobs from home can be very profitable!"

With the number of highly technical, difficult translation projects being offered at the "great opportunity" rate of 0.01 USD in some language pairs, I fail to understand how simple jobs can be very profitable
