After a long hiatus, I am ready to start translating again. I once was a J-E translator at pro level, but got stripped of the title and my standard level rating due to a single miss translation on my part. I had to pass the standard level test again to get translating and I decided I needed a break.
Now I am back and took a look at the J-E Standard level test a couple of days ago. I translated it to the best of my ability and am now ready to submit the test only to find that the standard level test for J-E has been taken down. This is very frustrating as I only took a look at the test a couple of days ago and did all the work necessary for the test. Is there a way I can still submit? Guessing no, when will the test be up again and will it be the same test? I am sure I am not the only one who has been caught out.
Gengo says there is no time limit for testing, but if they take tests down whenever they please then they should state that and let the person taking the test know so that they can make their own decisions.
I can only say I have had very bad experiences with Gengo - what with being stripped of both my Standard and Pro levels for a single translation miss, and now for taking a test which Gengo suddenly take down. Other translation sites seem to be much more proactive, supportive and helpful to translators.
