Hi!

It will not take you more than 5 minutes to complete and your replies will be very appreciated.

Feel free to send the link below to any translator not working with Jensen Localization; the more replies, the better!

You can access the survey on this link: http://goo.gl/forms/HSW3MsA3xL9GANlC3

On which Amazon sites is that card valid? Worldwide/US/Europe/Spain or something else?

CafeTrans Espresso was not included in the survey, and I have no idea why, as it is widely used.

I also thought it was the same survey, but it's not. I also clicked the top banner in proz.com the other day to see what it was about.

Nicolás' one is market research about outsourced services targeting the translation business.

It's funny how interesting the translation business and translators' opinions seem to be.

More imagination please with prizes. I'd rather sponsor disease-fighting or well-drilling than tax-optimised multinationals.

Or could it just be their email addresses that are of interest?

(A generalised cynicism not particularly aimed at the OP, who appears to represent a reputable agency.)

Just say what you want (what you really really want)...

- you are looking for partners you can take over.

I'm surprised you did not ask for specialists fields and turn over volumes + client lists to save you the trouble of looking at the profiles of interesed responses...

What does a strategic take over bid research report cost at one of the Big 5 (3?) - come on, an amazon gift card for the trouble?

I filled it in out of curiosity, but... May 28, 2016

... they were asking about problems and needs that as a translator I don't have and can't imagine having. It made me wonder whether whoever created this knew what our work is about, or whether perhaps I'm an oddball.
