This company CONSTANTLY posts "job offers" on various sites, always offering hundreds of thousands of words = large volumes. Whether this is true or not is not really interesting here. (I have worked for them before. there were never any "large volume jobs". NATURALLY, after I started to work it did not take long before they started asking me to lower my rates - which I already DID set a little lower than the Japanese rates.)
The interesting thing is, the posts ALWAYS state at their top:
"Expertise: No special expertise"
but a little further down it then ALWAYS (this text is ALWAYS IDENTICAL):
Description: ... This makes the position challenging ...
• Should have minimum 2 to 3 years of experience in Academic Translation
• Should hold at least a bachelor's degree in any field
• Expertise in academic subjects
• Certifications in translation and/or academic translation would be preferred
Well, to me THAT looks definitely like "special expertise"!
Or am I missing something important here? Do not understand the text maybe?
