    Default Fast Spanish Translations.

    Just stumbled across this, very interesting.

    Translations in an hour and good pricing.

    I am betting that these are programmed translations, but not quite literate. Notice that editing and proofing are on another page...Probably come out at 10 a word....if you want good translations...That's $100 per 1000 words....nobody in the DR pays that today!!

    I ran a check: $40.04 for 320 words proofread . They add 4 a word to proof it....
    Not bad work if you can get it....

    The main selling point is the speed.

    You need a 300 word legal or tech doc translated by an expert in 90 mins, it will cost you US$43.77. Non expert for normal docs, 300 words US$22.

    I thought it was a cool idea and is breaking down barriers.
    Now anyone can easily get stuff translated fast and at reasonable prices.

    I can do that at twice the speed, and I charge a little less than 10c per word.

    My point exactly....11 a word is a wee bit steep in today's translation market...

    Of course, I have not invested in the latest translation packages--which are not cheap-- but rely on a whole lot of experience....

    Highly technical stuff is something else, of course...

    I have seen stuff done by "Judicial Translators" that is more gobbledigook than anything...

    However, since I have not actually seen their work either edited or non- edited, it is not fair to be too judgemental..

    Holy Zombie Thread Batman! Only 10 years old! How does one even find the old threads? Why don't they fade away with age?
