Forum for Translators: MAXSUN International (HK) Limited
Another agency involved in UNPROFESSIONAL practices! They post an ad for experienced technical translators with expertise in their field only to offer EXTREMELY LOW RATES:
(excerpt from their email)"Sorry , reply to you so late. Most of our translators, their translation rate is between 0.03USD/SW- 0.04USD/SW. The proofreading rate is 0.015USD/SW."
But the low-rate offer is nothing compared to the BRILLIANT SCAM they run for several months and for over 50 language combinations, namely by getting as many and different SAMPLE TRANSLATIONS as possible (they are very concerned about the formatting for the "TEST" and then pass it for "review" to choose the best one and send it to the client, as these are all manuals and the contents are divided in chapters, so it's easy to do that! Well done - NO RESPECT FOR TRANSLATORS, who of course do their best in the "SAMPLE TEST", not knowing that reward for these efforts are cashed in by the SCAMMERS from Maxsun.
I know this agency. A while back they were providing their translators with a pirated copy of Trados Studio 2014.
One of the worst companies I know. Their clients should be aware that this company hires the worst translators as paying the lowest fees. Both the company and their translators, proofreaders and people in charge of QA are not professionals of the sector. Should you trust your translations to this company, make sure to send the texts to a third party for evaluation. Maxsun does not adhere to any good translation practices.
