How it works
Check if your language is open and register
If you don’t see your language, it means we’re fully staffed in your language pair at the moment. We know this may come as a disappointment, but we’re committed to giving all our translators a fair share of work.
Take our language tests and get approved
Our linguists have developed a series of tests designed to evaluate your level in your native and foreign languages. Only candidates who score above a certain percentage are accepted, and the cut off is different for every language pair.
Start translating and get paid
Log on to our platform on the web or our mobile app and check for available tasks. Read the instructions and guidelines before you start editing the pre-translated text. When you’re done, just press submit, and your first payment will automatically post to your Unbabel account.
No such thing
as a bad question
How are payments made?
Payments post to your Unbabel account every time you complete a translation. You can request cash-outs at any time. Transfers to Paypal or Payoneer are completed once a week, for your convenience.
What kind of work will I do?
As a translator, you’ll work on a wide variety of content. Most of it will be user-generated content such as emails, customer support messages, blog posts, comments, reviews, subtitles, product descriptions, FAQ articles, chat, etc. All this content goes through our machine translation engine. Your job is to edit the pre-translated text and make it perfect!
Do I need to be a professional translator?
You don’t need to be a professional translator to work for us. All you need is a great command of your native and foreign languages — as well as to pass all our tests.
Can I work on my phone or tablet?
Yes. Just download our app and translate on the go.
How do you monitor quality?
We have a world-class team of linguists that run periodical evaluations of the content we deliver to our customers, identifying possible issues and improvement opportunities. They also give feedback to our translators, which makes Unbabel a great tool for improving your language skills.
How do I know when there’s work for me?
If you’re using Unbabel’s app for iOS or Android, you’ll receive notifications as soon as there’s work for you on the platform. If you’re working on your notebook or desktop, you’ll still receive notifications. Don’t worry: there’s plenty of work to go around.
How much will I earn?
Your earnings will depend on how many hours per day you work on our platform. Depending on what languages you register for, you may have more or less work on the platform.
