1. Leave an entry in the Blue Board. It would warn other translators that this client is not to be trusted. Also, from my experience negative entry regarding non-payment makes miracles. I've had very few such problems during 8 years (twice, I think), and in both cases I've promptly received payment after mentioning this on Blue Board.
Although I presume we are very much on the same page here, I must make a strong point about the fact that the Blueboard should not be used as a collection method. It should be used to share important, useful reliability/business partnership information with your fellow colleagues.
Adding an entry to the Blueboard should be totally independent of being paid or not and it is supposed to give other translators an indication of whether they could be skating on thin ice by working with some companies.
Additionally, the bad comment and score in the Blueboard should stay even if you are paid. Having to ask for your money for weeks on end is enough a bad sign about an outsourcer and it is your duty to help others stay far from people who will cause you trouble.
