I think this Job or task is very respected all over and those who have skills in different languages can earn good money from it. I have heard about few websites on which its possible to earn with our translation skills as slowly this Universe is becoming a Global village and that's why we need to travel to different parts of the world and these translators can make good money in that instances.

What are your views on it? Have you Earned From Translation Jobs? Please share.

I do speak four languages and translation is on my list I just haven't found enough time for it. It is very rewarding and demanded in pretty much every place.

That's incredible @Meryemm , You can really try transcription websites as I am sure that they must have some work for you and then you can make awesome amount of money online and no need to work offline.

I do work for GoTranscript! But the quality of their files is just horrible. It takes a lot of time for you to understand what the speaker is saying. I felt that such files should be paid more because they're hard to transcribe.
Another thing is that I sometimes find two languages in just one file, together with an interpreter as well but, they pay the same for these files like other files that have just one language. I think they should work more on their paying system and more people will join them.

Yes, that's exactly what I want to do. I will apply to other websites that actually value hard work and give their workers exactly the amount they deserve.

I have signed up on couple of translation sites,but didn't get a job till now.I think there are members,like on Fiverr for example,who have already a reputation and ratings,and they are getting all the jobs.

of course, having a good reputation or rating does help and we can try getting more jobs if we are able to update a good healthy profile and also if we can start taking jobs at lesser rates, than that can help as well but we need to be within the rules as well.

I have read,that members,who ask for lower payment from the contractor for the completed job,are not so well received from other members,because they lower the general paying average for the tasks received on the site.

I don't know as I have never worked on these websites but I think this can work as at least you will get some work to show your metal and soon you can increase your rate after showing your performance.

If you are lucky and someone will hire you,even if you are a newbie on the site,maybe then you can prove your skills.I have read on Fiverr,that there members got hired by friends etc,who gave them positive ratings,so that they could get more jobs from the clients.

I have worked as a translator offline and earned money by translating articles. The job earned me $4 per page. It was a good offer because it took less than one hour to translate the page. I wish I could find more translating job
