Are you looking to become a work from home translator?

Are you a qualified translator with strong credentials and well-developed experience, looking for a steady stream of work? Whether you are a newbie or an oldie DutchTrans wants you!

We are hiring translators on an ongoing basis with strong emphasis on training and developing a great relationship with them. We know you have questions and we have added some answers to this page. If your question is not in the list, get in touch with us and we will give you further details.

We have started as a Dutch translation agency, working with only a few in-house translators and expanded during the years. We have now offices in the Netherlands and in the UK and we are working with over 3.000 translators. However, since the needs of our clients vary, we are always looking for new linguists to join our team. If you were looking for freelance translator jobs from home, we will be able to give you some.

What qualifications do we expect?

If you are a native speaker of English, a near-native in another language and well-versed in a certain field, that will do. Once you get in touch with us and send us your CV, we will send you further details.

What is the process of translation?

Ok, so this is a simple process that we will explain in detail. Every translation assignment is taken up as a project. We ask the client for specifications regarding the translation; what would they like the translation to be like and so on. Then the process of translation starts with a project manager. The process goes on as follows:

  • First Translator: The first, native, translator assigned to the job does the translation according to the specifications provided by the client.
  • Second Translator: The second native translator reviews the translation and makes it as clean and polished as possible. The proofreader also compared the translation with the original document and makes sure the message and its tone is perfectly conveyed into the translation.
  • Our Quality Assurance team will then review the project and send the translation to the client.

As a linguist, you will get freelance translator jobs to either translate or proofread a translation, and earn money from it.

How many translators have we got?

You did a head count didn’t you? Yes, we are talking about at least two native speaking translators who can conduct professional and clean translations. We are open to working with any translators because as long as you are committed to the job, you can work with us and grow. Right now, we are working with over 3.000 freelance translators from all over the world.

Why such detailed scrutiny?

We get this question many times. Why not just give the project to one translator? Why work with two different translators? Because it provides optimal results, the translation process moves along faster, there is much higher credibility than usual, and the translated content gets multiple quality checks. It is a simple and effective way of working with success.

What gets a translator disqualified?

Every translation assignment is treated as a project. It means that the project manager gives evaluations on the translators who worked on the project. When a file comes to you, you are expected to translate it or proofread it. When it goes to the next translator or to our delivery team, they will leave a rating for you which our project manager will edit based on the quality of your work and client’s opinion. We evaluate every translator’s performance regularly, and your evaluation has to hold its own for obvious reasons.

How do we pay and how much can one make?

Well, the payment for a translation is heavily dependent on your translation. Even if you are a powerful translator, but you have only translated one document; we will pay you for that one document alone. If you work extensively with us on translation projects after projects, then we can surely make a nice bill for you. We pay per word so it really depends on how many projects you can do in a month.

As for the payment, we are paying at the beginning of the month for earnings gathered during the current month. We are the fastest paying agency around, we never missed a payment and we don’t intend to. With us, you can rest assured you will get your money in time.
