Here is the job of your dreams! Apply now!
Dear XXX YYY,
I found your profile online and was very impressed.
We need the translation for this 110-page marketing PowerPoint file. The deadline is ASAP (ideally earlier). And be careful with the layout please.
Could you take care of this for half your price? It's not your specialization, so I assume we'll need to do a lot of rework here.
I almost forgot: we don't pay for repetitions. But make sure they're all there, proofread them and check if they make sense in their context!
We will pay once we get money from our client. You will receive money by wire transfer, after the deduction of $100 (processing fees).
Oh and I almost forgot, please reply with your signature on a blank piece of paper. It's for administrative purposes.
Want more? Just refresh this page!
About the Translation Job Generator
Any freelance translator who has been in business for more than a couple months is probably familiar with job requests such as the one you will find below.
Unrealistic deadlines, ridiculous rate, scandalous payment terms, processes that make non-sense, scam attempts, pathetic negotiation tactics and odd demands… A few of random sentences here are copy/pasted from actual communications, while the other are only slightly exaggerated versions of real e-mails. I also got inspiration from posts shared on translators forums and groups.
What is the purpose of this generator? I’m not sure! But I enjoy running it every once in a while, and I would love to get input from fellow translators. The more the merrier!
