work home translation jobs

951 2 Never clearly stipulated - Payments always took 2-3 months to materialise, but were ALWAYS eventually made IN FULL. Payment received: 98% of all invoices are paid on time (On average, two-three thousand euros a month.). (Will work for again: I am not working from German these days, so it is unlikely ) Sorry, this is another reply based on old experiences and I no longer have detailed records to hand, mainly because I gave up freelancing in 2002 and am just setting up again. I am replying because for a lengthy period I worked on a very regular basis with this agency - several assignments a week for a period of maybe 20 months. My impression is that they are basically honest and intend to pay translators, but they (at the time I worked for them) were seriously undercapitalised and had cash flow problems. In other words they simply did not have the cash available to pay on time. I would say, based on my experiences of three years ago, that if you want to work for Gaia Text then rest assured that you will be paid in full eventually and until you receive Payment it is a waste of time sending reminders and making complaints. I have no experience of working for this agency after November 2001 10/14/2011
950 10 do not know anymore, only remember they offered quite good rate those days (maybe 5 years ago) - no, not at all,had to send (post/fax and telephone calls) several reminders and they paid after one-two years Payment received: 1 week late (see below) (maybe around DM 1000.00). (Will work for again: No, I do not like to beg for my money) [Mod. note: Normally, information this old would not be rated, but previous responses in 2003 showed a trend toward late Payment, albeit only a few weeks to a couple of months (average rating about a 3 or 4)] They said they were going to pay when calling, but it took very very long--maybe they have improved, but those days they were not very fast with their Payments 1/19/2010
949 10 Immediately after delivery - YES Payment received: No. 5 months later. (Don't remember). (Will work for again: Yes, without hesitation) [Mod. note: Not rated due to age of info.] Although my information is rather old, I think that this agency has a good reputation in Thessaloniki. 7/8/2010
948 10 Not specified - Yes, Payment was always very quick Payment received: No. 5 months later. (cannot remember exactly, about a few hundred Swiss francs). (Will work for again: Yes) Sorry I cannot be more specific, but that was some time ago. I remember it as a reliable agency and a prompt payer. They do not call me anymore... maybe because I have become too expensive for them... also, the bulk of agency work in Switzerland is from/into German, a language I could not offer.
