Work History & Feedback

English to Vietnamese

“Vu and I were working well on this project but he felt he was not being paid enough for the work. He expects to receive $14 for 1000 words. To date I have paid him $100 for 6,900 words and he expressed his dissatisfaction with this. His translations have been accurate so I will give him credit for quality. Avoid this contractor if you want something completed quickly though (within 3 days). Before he accepted this project I told him this project is a work in progress so tasks would be spread out but I needed quick turnaround. Prior to hiring him I specifically asked if he could do 24 hour turn-around and he said he could. Not the case. On average translations took 4-5 days. Quality translators are easy to come by in the freelance world so I'd rather hire someone that appreciates some extra cash flow and being a contributor to this project and getting published recognition. Again, it was good working with him but he crossed a line by extorting me for more money when I was paying him an above average commission.”
