Nothing here yet. And the translators attached to me are asking, so I'm afraid that they haven't been paid either. I would like to have an answer for them at least.
The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.

The same happens to me and the translators attached. We're waiting, and they don´t answer our questions.

Well, today it's a cold day, gray sky, wind flows, almost raining... and I've been reading all posts.

Today I reviewed my FDM profile and realized there's a new check box ]to confirm PayPal login is correct, so I checked it... that's new for me. Have you done it?

As Evolution says, today is October 10th, I've not received nothing yet neither.. so I'm still waiting like all of us.

Thinking positive, if FDM has 200 translators as we can read in News, I suppose it must take some time to pay....

It's normal being worry about this, because we have been translating all these days, and we are unsure about payment, because it's first time and first times are uncertain... in one way or another...

So I think it would be nice that Nadia or other Admin at FDM say something about this so we can deep breathe, smile and think that life is beautiful and that we live in a happy global world where we all can be good friends, working together to achieve a common purpose... and that all our work is valued...

You know, usually I wouldn't trust on someone offering a job by Internet this way, but I used Free Download Manager since the program was a baby, and realized it was free, I couldn't believe it, most of good downloaders for Windows by that time had ads or were shareware.. So I try it and now it's like Firefox or 7zip. In the beginning it didn't have too much features, but was useful, simple and clean... Now, it's better by far. I just say this because, maybe I'm wrong, but I trust these people of FDM because of their program, they haven't appeared the two weeks ago, and I think this is a matter of waiting...

On the other hand I've some ideas about how to improve our translations, reduce time and share knowledge, but that's another story... If you want to say Hi! my MAIL is "captorx" at gmail, it's not a good idea to write down your emails here in plain text because someone or a bot can collect them to send spam. (We've translated some programs about mail extractors!)... But the idea sounds good to me.

Anyway, all you have a friend here...

Any news?

Postby daromero » Wed Oct 10, 2007 8:05 pm

I did receive an email from Nadia two days ago, not related to payment (as I didn´t reach the minimum amounto till now).

I wanted to give you this piece of information. At least, two days ago, Nadia answered an email.

Let´s hope that payments will be done in a couple of days. I still have ten translations to be approved, but I don´t know if my manager will see them till payment. I can´t blame him for that.

Good luck everyone!

Today, admin answere two messages in the page. This is the most relevant:

Dear all,

we understand you concern about the payments. If we were you, we would feel the same. However, we would like to reassure you by saying that everything's all right with your payments. They are already being transferred and should arrive in your accounts one of these days.
Since it is the first time we have transferred payments in this system, we have come up against some technical problems that have already been solved.
We are really very sorry for the delay and hope for your understanding.

"One of these days" seems a little vague to me, don´t you agree? :-(

Postby EasyMoney » Thu Oct 11, 2007 11:24 am

100% agreed, i was about to answer them with something like that...the thing its pretty clear, stop translations until we get the pay and everybody will be happy. Im not being an ass, its just that we are doing a "job" for "money" they are getting the work done but our pockets are still empty i can understand this is the first time they pay by paypal, maybe its not so easy, i know... but cant take more than 10 days to do it...

Postby EasyMoney » Thu Oct 11, 2007 2:48 pm

It seems that some ppl is getting paid, nice !!! So i think we can start working more calm now.

2 all

As we have already been saying, we are not going to let you down with the payments. They are already beginning to arrive into your accounts, but that may take a while because of the technical problems mentioned in the news.
We know that some of you did not get their full payment. We will look into it and improve the mistake as soon as possible.

Again, we are very sorry for the delay in payments and sincerely apologize for that.

november payment

Postby translator » Fri Dec 28, 2007 8:46 pm

And now, November payment.

18 has passed and I havent received anything. Today I read out a message from FDM stating that due to my location, I cannot not receive money via paypal and that they will start researching about XOOM option.

1. FDM knew about this since early november.
2. They investigated XOOM a couple of weeks ago, concluding in the forum that it was impossible due to FDM location.
3. Now they are researching what they already know again.

This also seems to me like a move to win some time because:
1. they do not have the money to pay
2. they do not want to pay

Any of them, this just show they are not serious employers nor payers and there is no responsiblity on their work
