Human Corrected Translations for 1 cent per word For most companies, translation is a growing cost of being online. Hidden within every startup with an app in multiple markets, within every company that has a presence in more than one country, is the very expensive effort of making their content accessible to everyone.

Basically, humans help the machine.Unbabel brings human quality translation to content that was virtually impossible to translate until now such as emails, wikis, forums and other user generated content.But, what’s in it for the community of editors?Unbabel Editors will be paid a part of the revenue we will charge to customers.

Each task needs to be rated by at least 3 people before we calculate a final, average rating. And the great thing is, by giving feedback you get points too!...
