Hi again,
The answer to your question is in the Forum FAQ (note that each section of the site has a Help area where you will find related FAQ, and links to moderators and site staff):

4. Are forum postings vetted?

Forum postings from platinum members and members with verified identities appear immediately. Postings from non-platinum members are checked before being made visible. Most postings are vetted within 12 hours.

HTH, Ralf

Blue Board Apr 5, 2004

Hi Ruxi,
as conncerns posts to the forums, all posts by non-platinum and non-vided members need to be vetted by respective forum moderators - this might cause a delay in your posting, we are not all the time on-line. In general, discussing a concrete posters or members is not allowed, if your post however was classified as non appropriate, you would normally receive an e-mail with explanation why it was regarded as such.

Now, information on job posters: the best source is the Blue Board - there you can check what other translators said about a given agency/outsourcer. I highly recommend checking the BB before ever replying to the job offer. You can learn a lot of things from there!

Good luck in prozing

Check out Zahlungpraxis too Apr 6, 2004

Die Liste bei yahoo/groups/ wird für dich interessant sein, wenn du mit deutschsprachigen Agenturen zu tun hast. Es gibt eine Anzahl von Leuten, die sich auf neue Übersetzer stürzen und niemals zahlen, eine Liste von Namen kann ich dir privat schicken.
