2064 0 45 - See comments Payment received: YES (sevel thousand euros). (Will work for again: I still do) [Mod. note: Unable to clearly rate this agency] I have been working with this agency since year 2000. Broadly speaking, I would say that they seem very busy all the time and their organisation is very poor. Projetc managers seem to not communicate with each other! Regarding the Payment, it is the same desorganisation. Sometimes they pay in time or before, but most of the time they pay late and give very implausible explanations. Anyway, they always pay at the end. Although they lack professionality, they are friendly people, and I think we have know a kind of confidence-based relationship after 4 years. That is why I am still working for them, but I am not sure I would recommend this agency to anybody, except to translators who have nerves of steel!! 12/15/2008
2063 0 Net 30 - Several months Payment received: YES (About $500 US). (Will work for again: Maybe) [Mod. note: Don't know how to rate this one fairly due to lack of knowledge of the legal relationship between the US and Italian entities] I worked for the San Francisco branch of Studio Melchior. I think it had some problems and closed before they paid me. Eventually, Ms. Melchior sent me some kind of money order or cashier's check to cover my fee. So, they paid, but late and after much confusion. I have never worked with the office in Italy. 1/8/2011

2061 5 Specific agreement - see below Payment received: Yes (a few thousand Euro). (Will work for again: for specific projects, yes) Carla and I reached an agreement regarding Payment in which I invoice them periodically when the sum makes it worthwhile to pay the wire fees. She is generally quite prompt although we don't have specific deadlines. The rates are very low but they will negotiate upward for important jobs. 3/27/2012
