[Resolved] Alies Language Solutions Pvt. Ltd., — Non-payment for the Service
Good day to you. This is Ramesh from Chennai - Freelance Translator. I work with several translation companies and agencies, who pay me on project basis. I have quite good clients with me, with whom I never had any problem.
Recently I worked with a company called "Alies Language Solutions Pvt. Ltd" based in Bangalore. The project was for NIFT website. The company gave me a small portion of the content to be translated into Tamil. The company offered me the job on August 7, 2009 and wanted that be delivered back on Monday, the August 10, 2009. I did as per the request and they acknowledged me for the same and requested me to submit the invoice. They had earlier agreed to pay within 30 days of the invoice date. On the same day[protected] and waited till september 3rd week. The person who was in touch with me was Mr. Raj and he had responded to me and said that he will make the payment by[protected]. But I didn't receive the payment and I called them again on 23rd September 2009. Somebody told that they will make the payment on the same day and asked me to wait till the afternoon, so that they can confirm the payment. I didn't disturb them till next day morning. But I didn't receive any payment from them. When I tried next day nobody was responding. I again tried calling them on 31st of September, somebody attended the call and told me Mr. Raj has taken money to deposit in the bank. I was wondering, how they can make payment on Bank Holiday. When I asked that, the person (he told his name as Kumar, I think it is a fake name) in Bangalore, their bank is not having any holiday. He asked to call him at 1.30, so that he can confirm the payment, when I called again at 1.40 p.m. the calls were intentionally disconnected for several times. I shooted a mail to them on October 1, 2009. The next day, when I called Mr. Raj picked up the call and he is about to deposit the cheque. I again sent a reminder asking for the cheque particulars, if he depositing it. Suddenly, anothe person (Mr. Khan) came in line and sent a mail with a scanned copy of a cheque and said, that the cheque is waiting for the MD to be signed. Later I came to know that Mr. Khan is the MD of the company. I asked them again for a tentative date to make the payment. But they didn't reply to that after that. Until now they haven't made any payment.
The above mentioned is the link for their client list. But they are not ethical.
When I tried to check for the genuinity, I came to know that Proz.com has blacklisted them in August 2004 itself. Several translation sites have blacklisted them. And I also came to know that, they were functioning on a different name SGP translations from Bangalore, which was blacklisted and they started a new company Alies Language Solutions.
I would request you to help me out. I wish that I can get my payment soon, atleast, this will alert other translators who may be victimised by this company in future.
With best regards,
Complaint marked as Resolved Aug 14, 2020
