I received several projects from this translation agency "MY ULTIMATE TRANSLATION"?
But form more than 5 months, i received no money, though they said payment was "settled", but blocked in a Chinese intermediate bank. They have a mechanical response to all my mails related to the issue: "payment will be made next week". The worst is that their PMs (Nabilah Yusof, Samantha, Sherena) are no longer answering to neither my calls nor my mails. They have even vanished on Skype.
They were really professional during the translation process (PO sent, feedback, responsive, etc.). But regarding payment, it's a completely different story.
Besides, I handled one of their big projects thousands of words). As i was sick, i could not meet the first deadline. But after discussions it was postponed and postponed and mutually agreed. I finally deliver the project days after without any quarrel. About 60 days later, while i was awaiting payment (let me remind that even the first payments) for the other completed jobs were still awaited), they said the project was rejected, raising some incomprehensible and inapplicable arguments. To my greatest surprise. I think they are trying to fool me!
http://myultimatetranslations.com based in Kuala Lumpur is a FRAUD company. They do not pay translators. BE WARY OF ACCEPTING ANY WORK FROM THEM UNLESS YOU WANT TO WORK FOR FREE.
This translator didt performance his work correctly lots of mistake and problem in his work out client decided not to pay for the job he have done so he simply spoiling our name and putting in all the sites.. please beware of this person.
You fraudulent party.
I have all the proofs with me for your non payment.
I refused tour English > Japanese work because you did not pay me for the English > Hindi work. Now most of Malaysia and translation fraternity know about your tainted reputation.
YOU ARE ONE OF THE WORST PARY we have come across.
Hi, it's 2016 now, did they pay you, or still not?
Not sure if Samuel got paid but they are not paying my money.
This translator didt performance his job well and our client decided not to pay for the job which is not right.. when we say this he disagree and put in few translator site. Please take not we work on our own but we depend on good translator not like him...
Not sure who is this person we don't have such translators please refer there is no name and information appreciated if you can remove this
I have been cheated by this company, or Samantha, Yusof, whatever. When I asked for money, he or she just disappeared. The company is a really theif.
Hi translation directory please note there is no any information of the sender.. kindly appreciate if you can remove people can simply put this comment or please share the details of the sender? Really appreciated thanks
We have paid this translator for the 1st job but for the 2nd job yes we didt pay because he we requested him to do the translation and he agreed 1st and then we was waiting for sometime he didt meet the dateline so my client need it very urgeny so we have to a different translator and settle the job... if he really want to take the job 1st of all he need to meet the dateline as he promise not we wait for him.., as u know client don't wait for us and we need to deliver them before the dateline. We have proof and our client have spoke to this translator directly and we have all the black and white and a proof.
The party's contention is absolutely wrong and misleading.
There was no quality or delivery problem at all.
The party wanted to do more work for them English > Japanese which was refused on the logic that unless old over due payment of Hindi work is done I am not interested in taking up fresh work for them.
There is a lot of written and telephonic communication with the party but they did not pay at all. They simply refused to pay.
The party has bad reputation about payment and is black listed by some translation sites including Proz.com probably when the work was done last year. This is a habitual non paying party owing me INR 17000/-00.
We have proof of what we are saying the client has rejected because of this translator... they was doing direct translation from google so since our client didt pay for this bad quality work we don't think should pay to him. Proz didt blacklist us since we still have account with them.
I have sufficient proof to show you are a fraud company, so please don't pretend to be innocent here. I will disclose more details about this company, Yusof, Samantha, and their beautiful account Sherena.
I just called the company and they hung up on me, twice. Didn't even let me finish my sentence to ask Nabilah to call me back or at least respond to my emails. I see that she responds on this thread pretty actively. Payment has been overdue for a very long time and I also get the typical response of "will pay by next week".
I saw on Google review and here as well as Proz regarding their nonpayment issue. Any other translators with the same problem in Malaysia?
Myultimatetranslation, Kaula Lumpur, Malaysia is an absolutely CHEAT party---KGAnand India
KG Anand is funny guy he did mistake on our translation job but expect us to pay him..
I've just looked up this company on the Proz.com Blueboard http://www.proz.com/blueboard/43765
This company is a non-payer and is banned from posting jobs on that particular site.
I was promised that I will be paid in part and the remaining amount soon. (Ie. "Next week) I'm hoping the company will hold their end of the promise now. Was so hard contacting them and they lashed out in anger at me when I asked them to pay. =.=
I was paid in part last month and have been promised payment this month and following until all of my balance is cleared.
I am another victim of this company.Translators need to be aware that this company doesn't pay, it is a scamming company. They cannot even post jobs in Proz anymore, they have been banned.
Worthless Party Myultimatetranslation.com, <alaysia
hi before you say we haven pay who are you show yourself before say!
Translators be aware that this is a very dishonesty company. It lives up to its bad reputation. I am another translator who has not been paid for my works and they told me that the customer was happy for the translation quality. If you want to work for them, just be aware that you are going to do it for free, they DON'T PAY.
I am now conducting a legal action against this My Ultimate Translation company, the Malaysia Translation Association is working closely with me for this case.
This company has been delaying my payment for 6 months, so far I only received 20% out of the total payment, I can assure it's a scam based on my experience.
FYI, Nabilah is the one who has been talking to me and giving all the ridiculous excuses such as accountant on maternity leave, CEO isn't available and company is on big financial issue, but I know the only reason is that they are not willing to pay.
And Nabilah, translation is about time and energy, you don't pay, meaning to say you don't respect our professions, you and your company doesn't deserve any respects from us, but I guess you don't care about this, do you? You just want to suck the energy and time out of us and profit yourself. It's such a shame.
Whoever want to join the force in this legal action, please leave a message here, I shall contact you soon. As a Malaysian, and as a professional translator, I won't allow this kind of company continue to operate anywhere in the world.
I will make sure my voice is big enough to get everyone noticed this issue.
Hi, I'm Murni Jamaludin. I also have a big issue with this company, Ultimate Translation which did not pay me almost 4.5k. I have no issue with my translation as they do not comment anything about my work. It's nearly a year I'm have been waiting for the payment. Before this they just pay me 1-2 times only. I also have proof of their emails regarding this. Feel free to email me at email@example.com or skype: mjmurni. I really hope to co-operate with you or anyone to settle this long serious matter. Thank you.
My Ultimate Translation just contacted me last week to express their sincerity to clear all my outstanding payment for the next 3 months by monthly. So far I have received their first payment few days ago.
There are quite a few translators have reached me in regards to this late-payment or non-payment issue. For those who haven't got their payment back, please contact +6019-357 5230, let's hope all of you could get back what you are supposed to be paid.
Meanwhile, I will update to you in regards to the payment progress. Let's keep an eye on this.
They also promised to pay me RM300 first today (13 July 2017) and will keep paying that kind of amount monthly, little by little. Still not sure whether they are really doing it. Wish me luck
i'm not sure what happened to you Roxanne, but I already got my first payment, RM300 after a year via maybank! it is so exhausting to keep begging and chasing them. good luck...
Gave the company the benefit of doubt. Waited for my payment, promised to be remitted yesterday but I still don't have my payment in my account...
I was even asked to remove negative comments on this thread and yet they'd never do their part as promised on time.
Key is on time, as promised.
Samantha/Sherena/Nabilah/whoever at Ultimate Translation,
My emails are once again ignored and it is not the first time. This is how I got to posting at this thread in the first place too. It's the final payment and if you would just respond and proceed with remitting payment, it proves that you are still a company that pays their translators. But if you don't clear off this final payment, you would just be an unethical business in the translation industry.
If you want to uphold the integrity of your company, do your part and stop asking your translators to take down their comments. I did my part and emailed the CEO of this forum; you've seen the screenshot of the email. It is already unfair that I am forced to limit my freedom of speech yet you wouldn't pay.
I faced the same with Ultimate. They kept giving excuses like the PM has gone on maternity etc. Finally i threatened cyber crime action and they paid up. Cyber crime police is the best deterrent to these cheats
Hi, How can I contact with the anti-cybercrime authorities?
The Singapore police is very strict. Just go online and file an online complaint with the cybercrime and another with the general police. Once you do so, forward a copy of the mail to Nabilah and others. You will recieve your payment within a week.
BTW CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO START A NEW THREAD ON LEXICON TRANSLATION DELHI, AND VALUEPOINT BANGALORE ANOTHER COUPLE OF FRAUDS
You may creat new topics at http://www.translationdirectory.com/forum/
Thanks for this valuable piece of information. Please share the useful links for filing online complaint with the Local Cybercrime Authority and the General Police.
To open a topic, click "Ask questions in forum" (on the left row), then "Create topic" and fill in spaces as needed... Hope this helps!
Thanks in advance!
just browse the entire site, else use their email ID at contact menu.
make sure to forward a copy to nabilah. Hope nabilah has delivered a healthy baby for that was the excuse I had when asked for payment that she was out on a maternity leave.
BTW these girls have all caucasian names, but a pathetic english to go with.
Thanks a bunch!
I thought this company is based in Malaysia, can Singapore police handle with these cases?
I am sorry, just google malaysian police, you will get the same results, and you can just go to their contact address and take action. Both polices are strict. I never googled ultimate's physical address. I thought it was in s'pore. This appliess to any police in any part of the world
Here is a personal message recieved from Samantha:
Its regarding your message on the Translation directory... Hope you have received the payment on Feb 2017 itself..
And even after that you have messaged on the forum badly about us.. Also you have created a scene that we have paid after you have threatened about the police..
Really its a bad thing that you have mentioned us as Cheaters... If you unwantedly did like this means, we have to lounge complaint on your activity.

Could the linguists tell me when the payment is delayed by six months where the translators depend on this income, is it fair to defer it by such a long interval. I have no intention of raking up issues, but this is getting to be a industry wide issue.
You have received your payment and why now you simply destroying
The company name.. we will take an action legally regards to this issue after paid you are simply creating an issue... we know what issue is going on just tc of your self!
See we have paid you long ago why now u are creating an issue by triggering all the other. You have got you payment and your out from here we know the reason why we are not paying the rest... since you creating any issue here we will make a report on you... we have not paid her after she thereatened us.. before that itself we paid.. we are paying resources based on the quality and the payment from the clients... she is imagining of her own.
The company owe me about 800 usd, you disgusting cheater!
Do email us don't simply just messaging over her we need to check if
we really need to pay you that much! Without a name and now official email sent to us we won't entertain!!
I think we shall be together to take legal action against this fraud company!
Every month I chased after my payment because it is hard earned money. Now that I have one final payment left, they stopped responding to my emails again! They did this in the past too when I have not received my payment.
Indeed this chase is a waste of time and there are more important things to do in our lives than to waste it on such group of fraudsters. I was threatened non-payment of my final outstanding amount if I didn' email to take all my comments down from this thread. They seem to be keeping that money -against my will- as the price I pay for my freedom of speech.
WARNING TO ALL FREELANCE TRANSLATORS: do yourself a favour, do not ever take any projects from them. Do not sustain their business at the cost of your forced free labour. Do not waste your time by having any kinds of dealings with them. This thread and their Google review is a good testimony to the sufferings of freelancers who took up projects from them.
Hi, everyone. I searched around the Facebook, and got full details of Sherena, the company's account, including her photos and address, also the contact information of Malaysian police, anyone needs this plz leave your email. Let's work on this together!
