›Description of Services and Payments: TraductoApp.com offers tools, content, products, services, and other resources in the Traducto application and through its website of particular interest to translators and buyers of translation services.
Service Providers are required to complete one or more tests to qualify to provide services to Service Buyers. Tests are judged by Traducto. Traducto’s decision is final. Upon failure of a test a service provider may re-take the test no less than 3 days later.
Service Buyers may enter and receive a quote for text translation into a number of languages from the Traducto application. Orders for translation are received into a database system where Service Providers may view and start translation jobs. On completion of a job, Service Buyers receive the translated text directly through the Traducto application. Sales are final. Traducto reserves the right to suspend a payment if the source of the funds is suspected to be fraudulent. Any funds received from an account having made a fraudulent deposit (e.g. stolen credit card) will be reversed immediately. If in a fraudulent payment situation a payment has already been processed, you will be expected to return the funds to Traducto account or face account termination and possible legal actions.
