Translations have been always a big deal for the international dating. Only a few Russians speak fluent English, and even less foreigners speak Russian.
Some dating sites offer paid manual translations. They charge up to 8 dollars per message. That’s an astonishing amount. Sure, it’s good for business. This model generates around $160 per customer. Much more than ours. Sure it’s good for business, but not that good for a client’s wallet and violates the privacy of correspondence.
We decided to offer it charge-free; it’s been always free (since 2004). Sure we do need money, but charging per message limits the amount of mail and the less mail our customers send and receive the worse for the community in general.
This post looks like a self-promo, right? Next time we will continue in a different key. I promise.
