The reason why I became a translator at Conyac was simple.
Registering as a translator was easy, and as soon as finished setting up my account, I could start translating and actually earning some money. No test is required as translators get verified by their actual translation projects. This process is not only quick, but also fun, as it’s much more pleasurable translating real documents then filling out a test sheet.
It depends on the language and amount of characters in the request, but by translating one request that usually has around 150 words, you can earn around 50 points. 50 points is equivalent to $0.5 USD, therefore by translating around 10 short translation requests gives you $5 USD.
It isn’t as much as you would earn working full time for a translation agency, but it’s a great opportunity to translate text that is needed by other people and improve your translation skills at the same time.
If you are very skilled, you are entitled to translate better paid Standard requests. They require a higher standard than Light requests, therefore I feel the responsibility of the work I am doing and I’m proud of every point that I earn. At the end of the day, I have done a good job and I am happy I have earned enough money to purchase myself a reward for my effort.
