Hi all,

Recently a fellow translator was asked to perform a free translation test of 100 words. The translation agency asked her to provide the TM together with the translation (TM+clean and unclean files). My friend thought that this was a bit weird and asked for my opinion. I thought it was a bit weird too, because I have never come across an agency that requires the TM to be delivered with the final translation for an unpaid translation piece.

Is this a scam?
