Today's microtasks or jobs of 5, 25, or 150 words that are part of a contractual agreement with a client to not fall under a minimum fee, create an enormous overhead for anyone involved with the job, whether it's the translator or any of the project managers. To assign, deliver, and invoice for the job with existing systems often costs a multiple of the actual value of such a job.
