OK, so here’s a story that has been told maaany times before.
A few hours a potential buyer contacted me to ask whether a Japanese translation was accurate. Apparently he had already asked another translator to work on his file, but wanted me to double check. I get requests like this all the time, so I accepted it and decided to look at the file. The translation was nothing but pure garbage , it was clear that this seller was using Google translation.
I told the buyer honestly that the translation was terrible, and if I was to work on the file, I need to fix pretty much everything. I also added that IF the translation was done by another seller here at Fiverr, he/she should be reported.
A few minutes later he asked me for a quote, whether I was willing to work on it etc, he also said that the translation was indeed done by another translator here at Fiverr claiming to be a professional. I didn’t ask for it, but he also gave me the seller’s name, so I decided to get nosy and check out this person…and bam, there it is, he/she has stolen my image and is using it as his/her own.
SOOOOOOOOOOO…it makes me angry enough that this idiot is lying and claiming to be a professional translator, but using my image makes me even angrier.
The image she is using is one of my sample images with Japanese written on it, but I have the feeling she doesn’t even know what it says on that image.
I have of course reported this to CS.
I am temped to send her a message too though…
DANG I am p*ssed!!!
