Hi everybody!
Does anyone know what “referralkey” is?
I got a mail from them where they claim fellow translator (which does have my e-mail) wanted me to join and start exchanging referrals.

Does anyone know more about it?

Thank you

This may not be a scam, but you're better off not getting involved in something which has the potential of taking business away from you.

Hi Lidija,

I received that email some time last year and checked it out.

Basically it's a website where translators recommend each other to prospective (usually non-existent) clients. This is all the info I have, yet it suffices for me toi stay away.

You might find more (commercial?) info on their website.

Thayenga, Kevin,
Thank you for your comments. I’ve checked their website and I’m not impressed. They couldn’t convince me to join the service.

Thanks again
