What kidn of hourly rate do you offer? Some of us have quite good experience on both written translation and verbal interpretation, but I get to see what is the salary range.
The market price is quite competative for Uyghur linguist, and its not easy to recruit. If you are working on defense contract because defense not able to find uyghur U.S citizens, having you find some with not competative salary (in other word "cheap labor"), we should know.
Please let us know what is your offer.
Thanks

Dude, obviously you do not need to worry about too much about this subject. The second paragraph is not necessary. It seems they are doing what they need to. No need to be so rude.
