Netter Versuch... Mar 9, 2006

...vielleicht hilft's aber als Erinnerung, nicht fest zu quotieren (und schon gar nicht den Job anzunehmen), ohne die Texte (und ggf. das Referenzmaterial) vorher gesehen zu haben...

LG Ralf

Noch besser: Mar 9, 2006

Ich wurde kürzlich von einer Agentur wg. potentieller Zusammenarbeit angeschrieben. Man bat mich um die Ausführung einer - nicht unumfangreichen - Testübersetzung. Ich wollte wissen, ob die Agentur denn überhaupt meine Wort-/Zeilensätze akzeptiert bzw. wie hoch denn die ihren seien. Die Antwort: das werde ich erst nach der bestandenen Testübersetzung erfahren.

Da kann ich nicht mal mehr Kopf schütteln...

That’s nuffin! Mar 9, 2006

Last year I quoted an agency for a medical translation and got the job.

In my “Translator’s notes”, which I sent with my translation, I pointed out that the source text contained an error which would endanger the patients’ lives and consequently could cause financial disaster for the agency’s customer.

The agency flatly refused to communicate this concern to their customer.

They further, after that I had delivered, insisted on that I in writing should accept full and unlimited liability for any actual and punitive damages that might be imposed because of the translated text.

Beat that one!

Did they eventually pay? Mar 9, 2006

... or they kept a retainer reflecting the possible liability risks? Can't see anything less than 100% as realistic in this case;\
