How Feedback works

The TRADUguide Feedback Forum is a searchable database which includes whois information about translation outsourcers and the feedback that their business partners (translation providers) have left for them.

Translation providers can rate their clients (the translation outsourcers) by leaving feedback. Each feedback consists of a rating and a short comment. Translation outsourcers can reply to feedback left.

Feedback ratings are used to calculate an outsourcer's feedback score. Translation providers rate the professionalism, communication, and willingness to pay in time of an outsourcer with 0 to 5 stars (5 stars). The higher the score, the more positive ratings an outsourcer has earned. The sum of all ratings makes the average feedback score.

Leaving a sincere comment about a translation outsourcer gives other TRADUguide members a good idea of what to expect when dealing with this outsourcer. All feedback left become a permanent part of this outsourcer's profile.
