Does anyone know or could give some feedback on how much girls have to pay to communicate with foreign men? How much they make? I am certain each agency in Russia is different, and girls in Russia probably don't make much money. I am sure all of us will better appreciate the letters knowning how much the girls have to sacrifice just to find a descent man. Sure there are spammers out there but most women on Fiance.com are honest and sincere in their search based on my experience.
Here is for Olga, why not offer a service, like the VIP membership, where all the letters to/from Girls will be translated for free for the girl. Currently, VIP service offers men free translation of letters to/from Russia but I wish reputable website like Fiance.com also offered similar service for girls that all of us can choose to pay.
I asked the lady Im corresponding with if they charged her for translations because some agencies do. She said no, they did it here for free. I learned two things that day. One they are free and second the lady Im communicating with is honest. Her honesty with me has been worth the price of admission.
sanfrancisco, VIP service DOES NOT offers men free translation of letters. We do not do any translations at all and everything is translated by the agencies of ladies.How they do it-its between lady and her agency.
As for the service you are talking about-this is what most of the local agency do. They do not charge per one letter-they charge girl once a month or once she joined their agency and then translate all message to and from her. Some agencies do it for free for their ladies but again, they must have been charged her at least once, when she registered there. It cant be completely free.
Membership fees of men do not cover the costs of translation of ladies messages in any way. You can easily see it if you count how many messages each of you write per month. In average men corresponding with one lady send back and forth up to 15-30 messages. Those who write to many send from 100 up to several hundred. So the cost of one letter will be less then 1$.
To send a middle size letter with a translation costs 2-4$ for a lady.
Ans thats a lot, because average salary here is around 200$.
So its impossible to have some kind of membership for ladies to include their free translation-it will be too expensive for them and completely no profit for the company. Thats why most sites charge men for letters.
sanfrancisco in Ukraine minimal salary according the law is 250 grivnas about 50 $. This is what pay in Lugansk in Universities (for those workers who do not have any degree in science), charwomen, librarians, people who work at plants. The highest salary in Lugansk gets the mayor, some accountants (who worked a rather long time in that field) and so on. The average salary in Lugansk is about 100-150$. In Kiev the salaries are much higher, but as my cousin said first she was so happy that she was getting more money but she had to spend more as well, and in the end she still didn't have any spare coin.
my friend's sister joined an agency in Moscow, which works with anastasia company. I talked to her about the services for women and asked the same question - how much it cost her. She said it is absolutely free for women. Services include translating their correspondence, taking their pictures and interpreting phone conversations. So, Olga is right saying that most companies charge men, but in Natasha (friend's sister) pays for nothing.
