Method - 04 of Making Money Online : Online Translator

4. Online Translation
Imagine for a moment that you've written an article, a book, or even created a video. You made it in
your native language; but you’d like people in other parts of the world to access it.
You will need to hire someone who speaks your own language and your targeted language fluently. It
is where translation jobs come in handy; and you can make money from it as a freelance translator
online.
Especially if you know one of the languages which are in huge demand right now including German,
Japanese and Chinese.
If you want to be a translator professionally, you should consider taking a language proficiency test
such as the Defense Language Proficiency Test or other language proficiency tests to show potential
clients that you are indeed fluent in your specific languages.
Like most online work, gaining experience is essential. It is crucial to get experience where you can
show samples of your work to potential clients and get recommendations.
In order for you to become a freelance online translator, here are some steps you can take:
• Describe your interests and your levels of expertise in Freelancing websites. Look for
translation jobs on the same freelancing sites and apply for them.
• There are many sites which provide translation services exclusively. You can submit your
known languages and get hired through any of those sites as well.
• Facebook groups on the topic
• Offering to tourism websites to translate their websites
Here are some of the top online translation companies:
Translators Café: This website is one of the best when it comes to finding translation jobs. You upload
your CV, choose your rates per language combination, upload a profile picture and describe your
specialization as well as any other services you offer {such as subtitling, editing, interpreting,
localization, transcriptions, etc.}.
Translators Town: Translators Town is basically a bidding site similar to the freelancing sites above
with the only difference being that it's specifically for translation services. The size of the jobs available
will vary from client to client – like all the other bidding-type sites. There are even small jobs where
the client may only want a photo caption translated. Then there are the larger translation jobs where
the client may need a book translated into another language.
Proz: Proz.com is generally meant for professional translators with good experience, but there are
also amateur translators as well. Registration takes no longer than a couple of minutes and then you
will be ready to bid on their translation jobs. To bid, you will need to pay 1 USD per bid. It's a good
idea to deposit a few dollars into your account when starting. This site allows the employer to contact
the freelancers directly and all payments are direct too, so there are no fees, except the bidding fee,
which is quite low. With bigger projects I would recommend some kind of guarantee of payment from
the employer for protection unless they are very reputable.
How much can I get paid for online translation jobs?
● You can get paid anywhere from $0.01 upward per word depending on the demand for the
language pair you specialize in. If the number of translators for the language are scarce, then you
can charge a higher rate per word.
