本人上个月初从一家冰岛的翻译公司接了一个项目,金额为800欧,承诺30天付款,但是自从交稿并提交invoice之后就再也没收到任何回复。

这家公司在合作之前长达一个多月的时间里多次跟我确认该项目,因为他们的客户一直没有确认要翻译哪些文件,在此基础上会觉得这家公司并不是很陌生,多少也放松了警惕,不过,合作之前我有要求他们告知proz链接,他们马上就发给我了,但交稿后半个月我再去打开这个链接的时候已经不存在了。

接下来的半个月一直给他们发邮件询问付款事宜,结果无一回复,所以可以断定这是一家彻头彻尾的黑公司。

从这件事里吸取了一些教训,跟大家分享一下:
1. 没有blueboard记录的公司尽量避免合作;
2. 新注册的公司可能只有proz profile,如果想合作,一定要求他们提供facebook、linkdin之类的实名制账户;
3. 上述资料都没有的情况下就只能要求预付款了,虽然这个要求不大现实,但是如果确实想合作也可以尝试一下。
4. 第一次合作就做大项目非常危险,这种情况也应尽量避免。

因网站规则限制不能在此发布公司具体信息,如有同仁想了解这家公司或者有类似经历欢迎直接与我联系。如有办法帮忙要到这笔翻译费,本人愿意支付600欧作为答谢。

Seek proz support Sep 17

I think you should seek help from Proz staff see if you can get your money back. If you wrote in English, a lot of other colleagues who don't speak Chinese would pitch in and give you advice.

谢谢你的建议,我会写一封发布到英文的论坛。
这个公司其实就是利用proz找翻译,找到了翻译就把自己的profile删除,其实proz也没什么可做的,已经不在proz他们也管不了。这公司以后还需要翻译的话,还可以重新注册一个,换个名字,很容易得逞,不能公布他们的名称算是对他们最好的保护。
