12 Dez. Falsche Übersetzer

Kürzlich wurden wir durch ein Rundschreiben eines brasilianischen Übersetzungsbüros an Folgendes erinnert:

  1. Es gibt auf dem Übersetzungsmarkt unglaublich unprofessionelle Menschen.
  2. Es gibt ebenso unprofessionelle Übersetzungsbüros, die diesen Menschen Aufträge geben und sich dann über die Ergebnisse wundern (wenn sie diese denn beurteilen können).
    Und jetzt kommt‘s:
  3. Es gibt offenbar außerdem Menschen, die sich in Serie mit falschen Identitäten und Sprachkombinationen bei hunderten von Übersetzungsbüros weltweit bewerben!

Durch die Mail des besagten Büros aus Brasilien weiß ich nun, wie es kommt, dass sich bei uns täglich (!) 5-10 Übersetzer mit den unterschiedlichsten Sprachkombinationen – aber stets mit Gmail- oder Hotmail-Adressen und immer in mehr oder weniger lustigem Englisch – in blumigen Worten als geniale und ständig verfügbare Übersetzer anbieten, zum Beispiel so:

Offenbar steckt eine Einzelperson in Israel hinter vielen, wenn nicht den meisten dieser Pamphlete. Aber lesen Sie selbst:

fraud in the translation industry

Hello to everyone
This is an information about a fraud in the translation industry
I was contacted (again) by the email below and your email was in the cc field, so I am answering everybody that was in copy in the email.
I would like to inform that these applications are part of a fraud. These applications are being made by a person who is sending fake CVs to agencies pretending he is a professional translators.
We identified several messages arriving from different languages pairs in a daily basis for more than 1 year now.
After tracking the IP and informing the police here in Brazil we found out that this is being done from Israel. Basically this person offer the service, when we hire the service either he disappear or delivers a ‚Google translation‘.
The lack of professionalism from this person has affected us in the past and now he added all his contacts in the CC field, so I I had to inform all of you about this. The Brazilian police is informing the international authorities already, but it is important that all of the agencies are aware of this situation.
If you have any question please let me know, I have enough information about this person to share with you. Before you hire the service from anyone sending CVs, be careful and try to make direct contact by phone before hiring them for any important service.
If you are from an agency in Israel, please drop us a line because you may be able to help us track down this person.
Thanks a lot for your time, if you have information about this fraud to share with us we will be glad to hear from you.

Kindest regards
