I wonder just how far they think $20,000 is going to get them? Probably not too far.

Like 1 person for 2 months... or that same person, one day a week, for the year.

"Around-the-clock translation services" for 20K, even thinking they have 1 single person on staff at any given time, that's 2.28$/hour.... any takers?

I think there's either a typo or a misunderstanding somewhereicon_wink.gif
