Hello all,

I worked with an agency in July/august on a big project (more of 60.000 words) for a client very important(international notoriety). But the problem is the agency don't pay me. Once job done, the agency do not answer my emails... I'm not the only translator which have this problem (another translator which worked on the same project of me but in other language).

So, I concluded this agency don't want pay! What can I do?

I contacted the client, but on them web site there is only an email to contact (customer service I think...).
I left a negative feedback on proz and sent a no-payment report to them.

If you have a similarly experience, can you help me about what can I do!

Thanks.

Vanina

Vanina, sorry to hear about your trouble with this agency.

I'm having the same problem with an agency in Spain and recently found this article

http://www.proz.com/doc/328

I sent a mail to the agency on Monday asking them to please resolve the situation within 8 days. Needless to say, they haven't replied. Next Monday I will start to go through the steps outlined in the article.

good luck!

Paty

I translated a Printers/Copier manual for a major manufacturer. I worked online directly on their software, so I guess that, like every internet connections, the IP adreses was registred when I connected to the server.

In my case it's an agency localised in Portugal.
I'll read the article... Thanks

If they are other translator in my case (same agency, same project), please contact me. I'm already in contact with another translator, and together we can do something!
