A a new york-based games company made an advertisement asking for an English-Arabic vice versa translator who would edit transcriptions and leave short audio messages. They accepted me but I suspect that it may be a scam as they do not require experience nor they made me a test. They just asked for an Arabic sample with the English translation. They will pay pay $.02 USD for every word transcribed/translated and $.01USD for every word recorded. I know it is a low rate, but, as an inexperienced translator, it will be good for me. I will work for them as a freelancer from home as I live in Egypt. They sent a hire contact for 30 days. Now , I do not know whether to sign it or not. Can you help me in that?
