I am a bit puzzled by the number of bidding jobs I see at the moment on Proz.com.

To put it simply, it's when an agency doesn't propose an actual translation, but proposes to participate in a bid for a translation that might be won and become a translation job in the traditional sense.

I already did that, but for agencies I already knew and trusted.

I wonder what are the legal and financial conditions of those jobs:

- Do you get paid if the bid is lost?

- Do you get paid full rate?

- Do you know for sure if the bid has been lost or won?

- Do you always get the actual job if the bid has been won?

Just wondering...
