The only information given is what software the translator is supposed to use. (At least I think that's what they mean.)

I hope that whatever efforts are currently underway to overhaul the job posting system will result in a model that makes it impossible to post jobs that don't contain a bare minimum of information (specific subject field, topic, type of text, job volume).

since it's OCR and DTP... Apr 13, 2004

... I assume they want you to scan a file and then import it into a Quark file and adapt the layout.
As far as I can tell, there is no translation involved at all in this job, but I can't tell for sure, of course.

Job removed - thanks Apr 13, 2004

Hi Norbert,
Thanks for the heads-up; while the almost non-existent job description is a problem per se, the job itself isn't eligible, as it doesn't require the services of multilingual professionals or companies, as set out in the Job Posting FAQ.

I removed the job and contacted the poster.

Best regards, Ralf
