Jeg sendte inn anbud på en jobb (1.000 ord) som ble postet i dag.

Dette er svaret jeg fikk:
"Thank you for your interest. Your experience is impressive. However,
since our text is very basic and simple with lots of word repetition,
we would like to pay 30 euros the most."

Enkel hoderegning tilsier at de vil betale 0.03 EUR per ord.

Svaret mitt, om jeg skulle fått noe slikt Nov 6, 2012

"Thank you for your reply. Your gall in making this counteroffer is impressive. However, since my needs (though not extravagant) extend beyond bread and water with lots of repetition, I would like you to take a flying leap."

Kvaliteten på en del av det jeg har korrekturlest i det siste Nov 6, 2012

.. tyder på at det er en del som tar på seg disse jobbene fordi de vet de ikke kan skrive korrekt norsk.
Jeg under meg enda over hvorfor man på død og liv skal jobbe som oversetter av alle ting, når man har så store problemer med rettskriving og grammatikk.

However Nov 6, 2012

også i innlegget over bruker innleggsforfatteren følgende uttrykk:
"begir seg ikke ut for å være anbudsekspert!" - som ikke akkurat er korrekt bruk av (det lite brukte) verbet "begi". Håper hun kun oversetter fra norsk til engelsk...

Believe me, this is the way I answer those requests.
