Yesterday I received this email, sent from the "contact céline" page on this website.
I work in the International Development Department at the University of X. We are undertaking an evaluation of aid, and we are looking for a French to English translator for our X country report. This is an urgent request as we are receiving draft chapters this week and next, and we need them to be translated asap.
I would be happy to speak with you if you would like to know more about this project. My direct line is xxx xxxxxxx.
Of course we pay competitive translation rates."
- Clients finding me via this website.
- Extremely interesting-sounding job.
- Client seems pleasant, organized and communicative.
- I’ve never had a potential client try to allure me by mentioning the competitive rates they offer (they more often insist on the fact that they are looking for a competitive rate).
- I don’t translate into English. *sigh*
