Better than a 500-word free 'test' ... :-) Apr 8, 2002

The \'job\' posting states:



I am looking for a translator/engineer who is very familiar with printing presses, folders, cutters, etc. I am working on a manual and have a number of terms/concepts I cannot figure out. I will pay a decent consulting fee to someone willing and able to help.

Please do not respond if you don\'t know the Polish phrase for \"plow fold.\"

Please contact me directly at tomekp@flash.net



Seems more honest than some of the \'tests\' posted by agencies ...

Isn't it a healthy alternative Apr 8, 2002

to asking 20 or more KudoZ sentences in a row?

Perhaps the result would be better, if he would have posted KudoZ questions
