I guess the word “hate” might come across as a bit strong, but I do know what you mean.
After all Fiverr is a place where the majority of users are English speakers, and it is a global online business, so being able to speak/understand English is quite important even though you don’t need to be native level in some cases.
There were 2 buyers in the past which I ended up telling them ( begging, to be exact) not to order from me since I was having such a hard time understanding them, yet they always had a very specific idea in mind. I had to send over 50 messages ( one time it went over 90!) back and forth just to finally get their ideas clearly. I started asking them many times to pleeeeeaaaase hire a person who can edit their messages ( or a translator), they kept saying yes, but never did. That angered me in the end and I stopped doing gigs for them. I guess I got upset not because of their English, but the fact that they kept saying they will ask someone to help, but never did and kept ordering from me pushed me over the edge. Well, this wouldn’t have happened in the first place if their English was a biiiiit better…and I’m aware that me saying this makes me sound like a b*tch. Huh.
On the other hand I’ve had the chance to meet many wonderful buyers from around the world…
and OK, I’m gonna admit, ALL of them spoke English pretty darn well, and I had no communication problems with them.
Not sure where I am going with this…
I can say this for sure, I do hate it when I see writing/translating/editing gigs done by people who can’t type a single sentence correctly!
