This blog reflects a small corner of my world as a translator, and serves as a repository of useful resources. Feel free to suggest new ones.

Realistic expectations??? Not!

Some translation job postings are really too much. Never mind those that pay only 2 cents per word and on top of that require you to have a PhD, a hundred years of experience, CAT tools AND to do a test...look at this one I found on a popular job board: "Need freelancer to take upon this project. Aprox 50,000 words starts 08/17/09 due 08/19/09 by 5pm EST"... What! 50K words in two days? Seriously? I can only smile :-)
