Well, I do not speak Spanish or Mandarin. But it seems I can offer translations from Spanish to Mandarin. No matter if the customer complains - I can keep his money. The support will be on my side.
Sounds funny? It isn’t. It is a real thing.
What happened …
I’ve ordered a translation from german to english language. The user promises (on the gig page): He is a native english speaker and a full time translator. I placed my order.
Then he delivered. Bad, really bad translation.
I wrote a message to another translator here on fiverr, a german english teacher. He wrote me: “Okay, this is really a bad translation. I doubt that it is a machine translation, because it would be even better. Seems that someone has overrated his English skills. From whom did you get that?!”
Well, and the fiverr support?
“… However, as the work has already been done in accordance with the Gig description, we cannot outright cancel this order.”
Really? “… work has already been done in accordance with the Gig description …”???
This is too bad.
