  1. Update: Now I'm pretty sure it's a scam. I asked both to prove they're working for the company, my question got completely ignored and then he slipped. He had messaged me on Fiverr asking me to send a message to the "company secretary" on WhatsApp and just now he said "send me a message" (to send me the demo video). First it's his secretary, then it's him? 🤔 Not to mention they write the same way; he can't write properly apparently. (I actually forgot that you shouldn't write with customers outside Fiverr. It's been a while since I had an active gig.) I am not even mad, I am amused. 😂
  2. Hello! Sorry if I sound like a newbie, it's because I am one and I don't want to be scammed. I had sent an offer for a buyer request to retype a document and I got a message asking me to write them on WhatsApp. The weird thing is, the "person" I messaged on WhatsApp didn't seem to be an actual person. They couldn't answer my questions and just continued with their chatting program. They also asked for my experience but instead I asked if I understood the job correctly, to which they just replied "That's great" and asked me if it's okay to send a paid test article. I clarified what I offer and they just sent the file. No viruses, I opened and it looks legit - the company seems legit, but how do I know if these two people I chatted with are actually affiliated to this company? Turns out it does match to what I'm offering, it's just on a larger scale I guess. Another thing I'm unsure about is that there's a security fee I have to pay and that can only be refunded if I finish the assignment. If it's legit I will be serious about this, but if they're not even from that company I won't get my money back. It's also weird to me that in the PDF file with the information they talk about a demo video that I need to watch first and that someone was supposed to send me, but nobody sent me one. Is that another sign these people are not actually with this company? Also, there are typos in the PDF file. Red flag for me at least. The pay is very good, maybe too good for a first job. And I don't know if that's normal, but the amount of pages on each project I can choose have an even (?) / specific number of pages. 25, 50, 75 and 100. I mean, wouldn't each project have a more random number of pages? Like 23, 48, 78 etc.? It's so calculated. Anyways, I should probably ask them to prove that they're actually part of this company. Other than that, what do you think?
  3. Hello there, I just started a new gig for translating, and I have seen translators on here offering to translate websites, apps, and software. I also read online that you don't necessarily have to know coding to translate websites, but how do you go about that exactly? Can you do it with Google Sheets? Maybe by copying every word of the website into the spreadsheet and translate it? And would translating apps or software work the same way? I tried to look into how translators manually translate websites, but I only get result on how to automatically translate websites. Thanks in advance for your answers and patience!
  4. Thank you, I'll ask again in Casual Conversations! I did try to research, but my search engine thinks that I want to translate a website's content automatically for myself, I really can't find anything about how translators manually translate websites...

  6. Hello! When I look at my gig analytics it shows an extra order that I don’t have. I just finished an order and now it shows I have -1 orders. So I have to increase my max order number by 1.
  7. If you don’t think you can provide the service with the quality needed, contact CS and politely ask that they cancel the order for you without negatively affecting your stats due to the buyer ordering a service you do not offer. Thank you for the answer! So technically it’s not against the rules or anything? I do think that I can complete the order. Also, what’s the CS?
  8. Hello! I just got an order without requirements, when I asked what the requirements are, he asked me if I can do a remix of a song he sent. But what I do on my gig is remake songs/make instrumentals/karaoke versions of songs that already exist, not remixes. I’m up for it, but it’s not what my gig is about. What do I do in this situation? Can I just do it even though it’s not what I offer on my gig?
  9. Ahhh I understand, I’m glad I asked then! Thank you!!!
  10. Thanks for the answer! Of course I’ll remove the watermark when I deliver it, but what about revisions? I just saw that I can attach files in the order chat, but doesn’t the customer have to ask for a revision? Sorry I’m a bit confused, this is my first order!
  11. Hello! I know that it’s important to add watermark to audios for demos and revisions, but is it still necessary if the audio clip is only one part of the song, like 16 seconds? Is there no danger or should I still add a watermark? I’d probably add one at the beginning. Just wanna make sure and check what you all think! EDIT: I just found out that I misunderstood how revisions work, I thought customers could request them before the delivery not after…
