Pleasant Surprise

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by an agency I sometimes work for if I could help out with a huge project they had to translate practically overnight. The text was divided among several translators, but I could take on only 4,000 words since I had another project running at the same time. The were very helpful answering questions and communicating exactly what they wanted us to do. They also added a percentage for our efforts to keep to the original formatting — which (in my experience) is unusual in and of itself.

On Saturday, I received a $20.00 gift certificate for by e-mail. The message: “Thank you so much for all of your help with the large XY project completed last week. We really appreciate your availability and flexibility with the schedule and all of the time and effort you put forth. This is a small token of appreciation just to say thanks for being a part of the Translate4me team! We look forward to working with you again soon!” What a nice surprise!
