Dear Fellow Translators,

Usually, after bidding for a job, when a project manager asks me to sign the confidentiality agreement and then send it back to her (almost all PMs with whom I deal so far are women), next she will send me the document to be translated. In other words, she assigns the job to me.

Yesterday, I got an email from a PM asking me to sign the CA first and then send it back to her. Then, she would send the document to be translated, she said. Unfortunately, there is no follow up until this afternoon.

1. Should I contact her for clarification or just wait and see?
2. Have you ever had this kind of experience?

Thank you very much indeed for sharing.

Best Regards

Hipyan Nopri

Dear Hipyan, Jan 6, 2007

Today is Saturday, i.e. weekend in western countries

Do they work?

Do You ask for e-mail confirmation when you send anything?

Have a bit of patience... If they need you they will send asap the job.

Have a nice day,
Radu

Hi Radu Jan 7, 2007

I just wonder if she will send the document to be translated because this is really different from my usual experiences. After signing and sending back the CA, I usually receive the document immediately.

In fact, she emailed me on Friday at 6:30 pm (West Indonesian Time). It is about 12:30 in her country. Thus, there are around 5 hours for her to send the document. Indeed, I forgot to ask for her confirmation (usually I do) upon receiving the CA.

Anyhow, as you suggested, I will wait for her until Monday.
Thank you very much Radu.
Have a nice weekend.
