The Translation Job Generator v1.0!

Here is the job of your dreams! Apply now!

To whom it may concern

I have a job for you, see details below.

We need the translation for this 110-page marketing PowerPoint file. The deadline is ASAP (ideally earlier). And be careful with the layout please.

The text is not that difficult, and we think $10/1,000 words would be a reasonable rate here.
Please note that you will be asked to explain any translation differing too much from what MT says.

We will pay in cash, after conversion in Greenlandic krones.

Please reply with your CV, I'm sending this to a good hundred translators, so it's hard to keep track of things.

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!
