    ?? I'm 100% against the death penalty but what are you talking about? The two brothers had already coldly murdered civilians, had an RPG, AK-47s, etc.? They manage to kill both while the hostage was freed unwounded... Very nice job as usual from the GIGN

    Wait, I watch the video of the dancing girl again. OK, wow, my purpose is to understand the best possible way what's really happening. (who controls the medias, who are the local producers of toilet paper/soap/etc. and what are they doing and why are they doing what they do, etc.)

    I'd say it's more or less standard (if it's ENG>SPA, then it's a common pair, Scandinavian pairs pay much more for instance). Other things to consider: flexibility you have saying no to a job, if the fuzzies are paid for a decreased rate, quality of the other translators if you do editing, etc...

    Morroco is quite an authoritative power, but it's close from being a democracy. I can also see Tunisia become a democracy (recent democratic elections, Tunisians reject Islamism). But it's true that overall, most Muslim countries are far from being democracies.
