Worked for many years as InHouse Translator at one the then leading LSPs of my country (Israel),
suddenly the translation dept. was closed and I found myself out of job.
Started to look around and found small jobs, suitable for size, delivery time and also payment terms.
Few years ago a new competitor, OHT (short for One Hour Translation) started operating from
Cyprus at the beginning, then they opened an NY office too.
I started working with them earning points for translated words, then I converted those points into $, issued invoice
and got paid smoothly through Paypal.
Last March I converted points and issued an invoice for more than 900$, uploaded online the Israel tax
exemption form (what for? thay are Cyprus/US based co) all as per what is stated and requested in their website and waited
till the end of April for my payment which never arrived.
I sent messages through their website, received at the beginning automatic confirmations of received messages with
promise to be contacted ASAP, got absurd mail replies by ppl who hasn't a clue about the matter (they kept asking for an Israeli tax
declaration which I CANNOT get because I live on Social Security benefits).
Then I got a phone call from NY from a lady dealing with my case, explained my points,
got promises to be called the day after by a higher executive, which of course never happened.
This company is a fast growing one, and I want to alert fellow translators dealing with OHT
to be careful for the risk to be never paid.http://www.onehourtranslation.com/
