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.icon_smile.gif

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
