I stopped working with them for translation Feb 22, 2012

and am not surprised by the mess they have caused. They also have the NHS contract in Peterborough - why? Cos they bid cheap, cheap, cheap - and in my opinion nasty too.

Thank you Gillian, this is the only way to resolve the problem. We did bid on several NHS contracts in 2009/2010 with rates that would have allowed us to pay decent rates to translators and interpreters. We never had a chance being much too expensive. We stopped bidding for this kind of contracts that always go to the cheapest service provider. Lets see how things develop. I have been really positively surprised to see that they seem not to be able to get away with this.
