Clients and potential clients should be aware that there is a bogus directory on the web called Lingvo Point.
It is bogus because it has stolen the data from a bona fide translation organisation called ProZ. All the profiles on Lingvo Point are the profiles of ProZ members. No ProZ member has given consent for their personal and professional data to be used by Lingvo Point. In addition, details given by Lingvo Point, such as rates and in some cases, the language services individual translators provide bear no relation to reality.
Please let me know via the Contact your translator form on this website, Allison Wright Translations, if you receive any notification by Lingvo Point that I am working on a job for you. Let me assure you that I never have, and never will.
All I can do is to urge you, as clients, to make sure you are dealing with a real person, a real translator.
I am always happy to communicate directly with my clients. In fact, Apart from blogging, I don't do it any other way.
This blog will focus solely on aspects related to translation.
