Forum for Translators: Re: AVOID R.R. BERZINS - TRANSLATION IN BOX LTD - NON-PAYER
Be very careful with Ronald Reinold Bērziņš / Translation In Box Ltd. / Tel. +371 26869226 / firstname.lastname@example.org
I was requested to invoice to: Salve Sol / Marsa gatve 1 - 69 / Riga / Latvia
I translated an urgent German/Dutch job for him. Once delivered, email responses became very slow and after a few weeks, stopped. And, of course, no payment.
However, I was able to contact the company who placed the translation order with him. They were very surprised, as Mr. Berzins had been their trusted translation partner for over eight years. They helped putting pressure on him to pay, without effect. Finally they ended their relationship with him altogether.
I think Mr. Berzins has been playing this game for a long time and with multiple clients. He accepts translations (preferably into multiple languages), outsources each language, cashes in royally with his customer, and never pays the translators he has engaged.
Don't work with him, or demand payment in advance!
I lost nearly $600 in this transaction, and spent a lot of time trying to obtain payment. Beware.
I worked for this guy too in August last year, and of course, I never saw any money, so I agree: People be aware!
