Re[6]: Translation Secrets Fraud




Re[6]: Translation Secrets Fraud
Sender: Afnan 04-03-2011 22:28

To whom it concern,

According to what happened today, our Agency wants to tell your website that everything was a typing mistake. I think that it is better for all to ask us before making any decision in order to give us a chance to defend ourselves. We do commit and follow your website's rules and we do respect them. The rates we offer are not flat, they are flexible and negotiable. It is also related to the budget of each project which our clients offer to our Agency. We do pay the translators using PayPal as a method of payment. In addition our clients sends us tests that should be done by the translators in order to see their abilities and skills. Then we send them the feedback whenever we receive it from the client.
Regarding Nathalie Ohana's claims, she has harried and told your website to block our agency although we have sent her an email telling her that it was a typing mistake and we corrected it at the same time.
Here are the emails:

Hello,
I have already sent you my cover letter and CV.
We have never worked together as I wasn't accepting fares below 0.05€.
With the rates you are proposing, please feel free to contact me.

These fares are not acceptable. Translators are not slaves. Is slavery legal in your country ? I thought Israel was a democracy.
PLUS you note in the ad on Translation Directory that you will pay 0.05€.
So this is a lie. I will inform Translation Directory immediately.

You Know what,
Your threats don't mean any thing for us.
We are a famous agency and we work with thousands of qualified translators.
You can ask each one of them about our system in working and arranging projects between them.
Regarding to the rate, our rate is flexible according to the language pairs and the project it self.
Sometimes we offer 0.13 EUR per source word, so it is not flat.
At last, We have the right to continue working, and I will tell the administrator of the website about all these details because if there is some one to be blocked, then that should be YOU.
The only good thing of all these things that, we will not work with you any more and I will tell all my workmates in other agencies about impoliteness of yours.

Hello Lubna,

I am little worried about your company. I just read very serious alleged fraud reports and dishonest practices on your rates. Also, the very lasted ad I replied to posted on translation directory had been removed. These are very serious allegations you should respond to in an unequivocal manners.
How do you explain this bad string of accusations? What do you say in your defense?

Sincerely,

Aaron
