Complaint Review: Able Translations - Nationwide
Able Translations and/or Able Transport Not paying their interpreters and translators Mississauga CanadaNationwide
*General Comment: Able Translations not all bad
*UPDATE Employee: Able Transaltion did not pay me.
Able Translations has been bad at making payments to me for months now. I keep asking them for payment and they only give answers like: "I am checking, will have an answer in the next couple of days" or leave a message to accounting, but nothing concrete about payment.
This is not the first time this happens to me. I have contacted other interpreters and met other interpreters in the field and all report a similar situation, to the point that most are simply not taking appointments from Able Translations at all.
To their customers I am sure they invoice and get paid fine. Their director/owner just took a nice long holiday, so money is not an issue, Able Translations not only has been refusing to pay interpreters, they also have a unilateral contract where interpreters have no recourse and have to wait first for 2 months before getting payment for their work and then are lucky if get paid.
Other agencies do a much better work at taking care of their interpreters. Even WSIB is starting to use other agenceis (when before they would by default go to Able Translations).
For interperters and translators out there, I would recommend Exacta Interpreting and All Languages. They are far better at honouring their payments and don't make interpreters wait for 2 months before issuing payment (of sometimes small amounts which is ridiculous).
Interpreters get paid between 18 and 30 dollars an hour while Able Translations charges their clients between 80 and 120 dollars an hour. To top it off, not being able to pay the interpreters?
For any interpreters that plan on working for Able Translations, they may be ok for now, but they are systematically skipping on payments. You've been warned, you will end up getting the run-around for months and no payment for your work.
Able Translations deserves poor reviews, but I doubt anyone wants to go out in public.
