For me personally it doesn't bother me because its fairly easy to calculate a ballpark budget for translation based on per-word rates. But I can see how for other jobs, especially jobs with a lot of complexity like creating a website or something, it would be more difficult.

Darell and others,

 

Thanks for the discussion and sharing your opinions on the best approach for a fixed-price job post budget.
 
Last year we ran a test in which some clients had the option of entering a budget range instead of a fixed budget for fixed-price job posts. Among other data points, we were seeing these projects weren't leading to as many hires. This isn't the result we want, so we're going to take another look at this process and the information gathered from the test. Your input here and in other discussions is also helpful as we evaluate this. 
 
If we make any further changes to this area (budget entry for fixed-price job posts), we'll let you know.
 
Thanks!
~ Valeria
