UN Inefficiency, Paying Almost 6x Market Rate For Document Translation

Um, $450 to translate a single page of a document into six languages? the UN pays $2,473 which is ridiculous, but $450 seems a lot to much as well. Someone should suggest Google translate or any of the other free services. (via)

"[I]t costs the United Nations an average of $2,473 per page to create every single document in its six official languages, while outside contractors complete the same work for around $450."
