      Last weekend I was at an ATA financial translation seminar where one colleague recounted an interesting story.

      Like the rest of us, he gets those queries, usually through ProZ.com, offering comically low rates.

      At first he always deleted the e-mails, but one day, just for fun, he decided to start making counter-offers at his normal rates, which are about four times higher than those specified in the agency queries.

      To his surprise, several agencies actually accepted his counter-offers and paid him quadruple the rate they had originally asked for!
