Transperfect
Filed under: General
Posted by: site admin @ 6:28 am

Well, many people are apparently satisfied, but from personal experience - which I share with quite a number of translators - I would advice **NOT** to work for a company called “Transperfect”.

In case anyone should be contacted by them.
Although they seem to a fortune 500 company, they constantly and systematically try to cheat the translators.
Or is that maybe BECAUSE they are a fortune 500 comapany???

I will detail this claim a little later on my other translation related blog:

A few months ago I came across the following site/movement and DO support their activities.
That is why I put they logo on my website and this little note here.
If you are a translator and take pride in your work - please refuse to “work for peanuts”.

See:

Spread the word:
tell the
world that you endorse the No Peanuts! Movement.

Peanuts! Movement.

Living wages for translators and interpreters! All
