2131 2 net 30 from invoice receipt - Always precisely on time Payment received: The first two received on time, the last 2 just becoming due (EUR2k). (Will work for again: Yes, by all means.) This agency demonstrates a highly professional approach both in terms of job support and Payment. Payment's been like clockwork so far. My contacts were Sabine Nowak and Benjamin Pischner, who are to my knowledge the (co-)owners of tectranslate. Recently they've changed their legal form from a German GbR (Gesellschaft b??rgerlichen Rechts) to the OHG status. 8/7/2011
2130 2 60 days end of month - yes Payment received: YES (thousands of euros). (Will work for again: yes, no problem) Tectrad Inc is the name of the US firm. They have a branch in Paris and in Milan, I work for both. 8/11/2009

I worked with Colleen and Fred. They were both great to wrok with. Very polite, appreciative, respectful, friendly and resourceful. I just received an email from Jim to update my resume. He sounded very professional and friendly too. I have nothing but good words about them. 8/3/2011
2128 8 30 - Always on time Payment received: yes (Several thousands). (Will work for again: Of course, I still do!) I have worked with Jen, Jamie and Colleen (not with Jim I) and they are all excellent PMs. 9/1/2005

2122 10 30 days, but I always get my checks earlier...: ) - YES Payment received: NO (Payment was due in the first half of November) (Various). (Will work for again: Absolutely.

2121 10 30 days 20 - (YES or NO)Usually, see below. 20 Payment received: On time (Several thousand euro. 20). (Will work for again: Yes ) I still do some small amounts of work for them but am very wary of working with them as they have tried to get out of paying me before, claiming that they had complaints from the client. When I tried to find out more information, the stories I was given by various people in Technicis didn't seem to match up. In the end, they only paid me a tiny amount for one large piece of work and even though they said they would sen d through the corrections, I never received them. Prior to that point, I had enjoyed a very good working relationship with them. [Mod. note: Rating base d on unilateral reduction in Payment] 1/13/2007

2119 10 30 days - about three weeks late Payment received: Always on time (about 300 euros). (Will work for again: no ) I did a sample transllation for these people. The person who claims to be responsible for translators, Christophe something or other is incredibly rude and insulting. They didn't like the one transllation I did for them and I then did another transllation, which was wanted immediately, for some other branch of the company, where the peoiple were just as rude. The one person they trust to check English transllations does not understand what editing a transllation is all about and if you use a word she doesn't like (start instead of begin as an example). She rubbishes the whole transllation. I would not work for them again even if they asked me which they are unlikely to do, since they have decided thaat I am a rubbish translator. Having been in the profession for 45 years, I can find a host of people who don't agree with them but it was a deeply unpleasant experience working for them. 11/9/2005
2118 10 30 days eom - mostly on time, but they insisted on paying by cheque which caused extra delay. One Payment slipped through the net and reached me a month late. Payment received: Fastest Payment I have ever received (few hundred euros). (Will work for again: doubtful.) overall positive experience, but rates kept low. 10/23/2007
2117 10 30 days - about three weeks late Payment received: Yes, always (about 300 euros). (Will work for again: no) I did a sample transllation for these people.
