Good of you to share Oct 31, 2015

I stopped working for them a long time ago. There are many other agencies who would be happy to have you. Expand your horizons to other countries and other continents.

Able Translations banned from posting on ProZ.com long time ago Nov 3, 2015

Hello,

Thank you for sharing with all of us.

Unfortunately, I am one of the Able victims and still waiting to be paid for my services rendered since January 2015.

Still, freelance translators and interpreters in Canada are left on their own to deal with any kind of unacceptable conditions. It is time that the Government of Canada and Ministry of Labour change things for this vulnerable part of the working class.
