Hi, the following outsourcer has broken our agreement and has not paid me on time:

The name of the agency is Shga Word, this is their web:

I have spoken with Betty Guo and Leah Tang .

This is their postal address:

Shenzhen Headquaters

Addr.:Rm.2605, Great China International Exchange Square,
Jintian Road, Futian District, Shenzhen, China
Tel: 86-755-2399 7611
Fax:86-755-2399 8832

I was asked to collaborate for them twice, and both times I met the deadline, in fact they said they were in a hurry, so I finished the translation jobs much before the deadline. They didn't complain about quality. I asked them for their payment terms and answered, quite unkindly, they were payin 30-45 days after receiving the invoice. The first time they paid 3 months after getting my bill, and I'm sure that was because I kept on sending them mails telling them they hadn't paid me yet. This time, 2.5 months have passed since I send my invoice. I told them after 45 days and they said they were going to pay that same day, which they didn't. I waited a week and told them again. One week after they just said 'sorry, I was in vacation', but didn't send the money. I told them again and again and yesterday, tired of waiting, I told them I was going to write the name of their agency in several webs for translators, to warn them against Shga Word.

Regarding their answers to my inquiries, sometimes they didn't reply at all, but other times they answered, unkindly, just "Received" or "We take note". They are unfriendly and have never apologized.

Of course, since this is the second time, I won't work for them again.

I think it is pretty unfair that we work under pressure and then we don't get what is ours.

Thank you very much!!


Gema Pedreda
