Still in the process of getting used to new forum.
I’m posting this just to check how things work, I’m sure it’s not that
complicated but since I was so used to the previous forum format for a loooooong time,
this might take a while…I guess having a college level education in art does on come in handy
when figuring out how a darn forum works!
OK, so I was away for a bit, once I was back I got a message from a buyer asking for translation help which was no problem at all, he placed the order, it was nice and simple, it was done in about
15 minutes. He was very pleased and even gave me a tip.
He also said stuff like he had a bad experience with other translators in the past who claimed to be a bilingual and a native speaker, turned out the translation was a total disaster.
I guess the scary part of translation gig is that it’s all blind faith,
so many “translators” can get away with just google translation, but the buyer has no way of
knowing. There are a few bad sellers I’ve spotted in the past, too bad I can’t get them banned.
…having that said though, it makes me wonder…OK, I do have good ratings, true, but
how the heck can all of those buyers really trust me and know that I am doing my job right!!!??
Maybe I should make a video of myself speaking in 2 languages…oh wait, I don’t know how
to make videos.
