Hey, so I have someone on Fiverr who is always translating my English text to French. I don't know French, but I still ordered from him because he had about 180 good reviews.
Lately some french guy read my text and he said that there are many many grammar mistakes, and some sentences make no sense at all. probably google translate.

my question is, what can i do? I always give him 5 stars, can I get my money back? I ordered from him many times, like 10 times (each sale is 6.49$).

Is there any france guy here to look at the text?

Hey, can you also PM the both texts, french and english. It's also interesting if he made errors besides grammar errors.

Sincerely
Rational.

I've seen it. Maybe 2 or 3 little change but text is ok and better than Google translate.

Exemple at start "permettez-moi" became "Laissez-moi"

Let me have my PM working and i will send you text

That's basically the only issue I saw.

well I only gave you 3-4 sentences. The original text is 250 words, and I asked him now again (the french guy who said its wrong) this is his reply:

"Bro I'm 1000% sure , and when I say some parts means nothing : they really don't have sense you can't even guess what the person wanted to mean in english. I am a french native speaker, with a university degree ( I've made all my scholarship in french, my english is poor compared to my french, language that I use everyday... all this to say I 'm 100% sure you need to proofread your text. I am really sorry for you. There are plenty of good french native translator on Fiverr, choose one next time you 'll have guarantee they don' do shitty automatic correction."

Send me the whole thing, because the sentences you sent me don't have any errors. Maybe only one, but then again it just sounds unusual, it's not grammatically incorect.
