Found today:

..."Could you confirm the 3 USD dollars per hour for this translation service as stated in your profile?"...

 

And you think USD 0.04/word is cheap?


You're right, I've been contacted for a huge translation job at $ 0.03 a word... I had to turn it down. Even if the total offered was between $300 and $400, I don't fancy spending a week translating for peanuts, I still have better things to do!


I was recently hired to review translations sample it was an easy job because all 9 were machine translations. If these freelancers always deliver machine translalation, $0.03/word is a very easy way to make a lot of money in no time.
