The Translation Job Generator v1.0!

Here is the job of your dreams! Apply now!

Dear %firstname%

We are contacting you about a very unique translation opportunity.

The source file is a book called the Voynich manuscript. I'm not really sure what language it's written in, but it's full of images, so you should be able to translate it easily (and there's always MT).

As you know, we are living in an era of economic crisis. We can only afford a third of your rate - but you could make up for it by working 3 times faster.
Our policy is to pay by unique source word. Also, we don't pay for number localization, because anybody can do it.

Before we can pay you, don't forget to send us a certificate of residency, a tax exemption form, copies of your certificates and a scan of your passport.

Oh and I almost forgot, please reply with your signature on a blank piece of paper. It's for administrative purposes.

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!
