Forum for Translators: Non-Payer: Wagner Consulting International
Wagner Consulting International is spamming members of TD with job offers with ridiculous rates. Of course, this company does not usually pay its translators. Take a look at the blueboard at proz.com:
It has been banned from posting jobs at proz.com and now uses TD instead.
I accepted a seemingly very urgent but small job (350 words) which they wanted to have done late at night. They literally begged me - we agreed a price and I delivered at ca 23.00 hours; In the morning they said they had found another linguist who had done it "in an hour". In view of the urgency they pretended with me to get me to do it it seems unlikely that they bothered finding another translator at that hour of the night.
I personally believe they took my translation but don't want to pay. I'd stay away from them, they seem to cause unnecessary annoyment, their behaviour is pretty abusive. I should have checked reviews about them before engaging with them.
I should have checked this site earlier, this company seems to make many excuse to delay the payment. The total amount to receive is around USD 1,000.
The rate is so low, and they are so demanding. But the payment does never come...
Take special care not to accept any offers.
Hello. I made a simultaneous translation job for the company Wagner International during the month of April. I had some trouble with the payment being done, it was not an easy task. Neverthless, three months after, finally Wagner did pay. At last!!! They have good intentions, probably they lack inner organization and have some trouble making the payment on time, however, they do pay. My advice to those who have problems with the company in issues related with payments, is to be patient and try to solve things using dialogue. There is also some personnel in the Facebook page, that is willing to collaborate and give solutions to this type of problems. Contact them in case you dont seem to receive enough support from the other members of the company, they are honest and help out with this type of issues.
I had much the same experience 10-12 years ago. I did a lot of work for them for a year or so and at first thought that they were a decent client. Then the payments started coming later and later, but after I asked what was going on they came. I did several more big jobs for them, thinking that we had a good relationship, but after an inordinate amount of time without payment and numerous unanswered emails, I finally threatened legal action. By then I had long since stopped accepting any more jobs. I finally did get paid most of what I was owed (several thousand dollars), and they even had the nerve to ask me if I were interested in more projects. The reason I'm making this post now after so many years is because they just contacted me a day or so ago (different project manager) about working for them again. I notice that they have been banned from ProZ and judging from the recent posts that I have seen on-line, it doesn't look like much has changed. So needless to say I told them I had no desire to work with them again. In my personal opinion, I think that this outfit would be a good one to stay away from!
