That rate is quite low, would be good is that could increase it a bitHi guys!
Has anyone worked for Lionbridge as a translator/proofreader before? I received an offer from them for a collaboration to work for them as a proofreader and they offered me a rate of 12 EUR/hour for reviewing 1000 words an hour. I was wondering if they are willing to negotiate their rates or is it carved in stone?
I got onto this at the weekend, but for me it wasn’t worth the time spent. I didn’t have most of the high end items, so was stuck on the low end $1.80 and a few $3 items. I probably took way too many photos and that alone took nearly 4 hours!Then I found the renaming took way longer on Windows. I ended up spending 4 hours on that then giving up. Will probably end up making £40 for 8 hours work, whereas the web evaluator was about £40 an hour.picture task update!

yeah renaming on windows will have been a chore unless you use software to turn a few letters into a repetitive term so you can do it all in rapid fire successionI got onto this at the weekend, but for me it wasn’t worth the time spent.
