Downward pressure on charges Mar 6, 2013

I am experiencing downward pressure on word rates from agency clients. I would like to know whether this is general amongst qualified translators and if so what you are doing about it. I will have to dip in and out of this session but will look at comments from time to time.

Downward pressure on charges Mar 6, 2013

As a matter of fact, I rejected to take a job offer because the client wanted to pay half of the widely accepted average rate. It would have been quite a nice job, my heart is bleeding but there is a line I don't allow any client to cross. If I offer quality work I expect appropriate payment.

Technical issues Mar 20, 2013

I'm experiencing the same thing as Veronica: loading is lasting forever. Is there anything we could do to fix this?

Connection problem Mar 20, 2013

Whenever I try to enter the chat room, I receive an error message saying: The connection to the server is lost.
Is it me, or is it the server?icon_eek.gif(

I believe there is. It keeps dropping the connection.

Idem ditto Mar 20, 2013

I'm having the same problems. I've got a translation to get on with which is high pressure but I thought I'd drop in and see if anything was happening. Will try again for the next session at some point. Maybe the issues will be resolved by then.

Fixed! Mar 20, 2013

I'm extending the Welcome session for 30 minutes (and moving the rest of the sessions to later) so that we all have the time to meet:
