Pretty ridiculous. I know this has been discussed before, but until we require more than the bare minimum of info from a job poster (ie: more than a bogus email), we\'re susceptible to junk like this.

His company name and email address are kind of a clue - and yet he got three bids!

widespread Shitte Jun 24, 2002

Google gave me 3,500 hits with \"Shitte\". Shame I don\'t understand half of them icon_smile.gif.

Giovanni, maybe it's really Shite! Jun 24, 2002

Did you try \"shite\"? As in \"Shite! I burnt my finger!\" icon_smile.gif)

This bogus name is bad, but what about the REAL one -- with a website and all -- that posted this one today?

DObbiamo traduttre oltre 500 cartelle in tedesco, TESTO FORNITO IN ACCCESS

La prima tranche , già disponibile è da tradurre entro il 2 Luglio ed è formata da 60 cartelle ( 1500 caratteri ) con diverse ripetizioni.

Si tratta di una guida di una città italiana

Bidder requirements


ACCESS X WINDOWS

Pricing:


450.00 EUR total

bank transfer


I thought perhaps the 450 is for the 60 cartelle -- low nonetheless -- but then again, perhaps not. If not, figure out what kind of price we\'re talking about and then you\'ll REALLY say \"shite\". And the whole thing has to be done in Access to boot!

I CALLED THE ATTENTION OF HENRY AT PROZ BECAUSE I CONSIDERED THIS POSTING WAS OFFENSIVE Jun 24, 2002

I know that many of us feel bad when we loose a bid because someone without any experience offered to do the job for very low prices, but there are other ways of discussing this. This posting was offensive not only to the Proz staff but to all the translators that participate in this forum.
