Best Online Translating Websites to Make Money with Translation:

So without further ado, let’s get into the list of sites.

(1)  Unbabel

Unbabel is a professional community of translators. As of now, they have managed to get 40000+ translators all around the globe. And, it supports 28 languages.

Once you find out the languages you know on Unbabel website, you should join as a translator. For a beginner, they pay about $8 per hour. As you grow as an expert translator, you can even get $18 for an hour.

One of the best things about Unbabel is it gives you the source and an AI-generated piece of translation to help you with. And, you don’t have to wait until the end of the month to get paid because they follow a weekly payment pattern via PayPal or Skrill.

The company has made the job so much easier with their mobile app. You can translate on-the-go using it.

Start by registering yourself and creating your profile with the correct information, if you are applying for Translation Jobs. Now they will list your profile into their directory for bidding on as Translator Jobs.

You have to be a paid user to get all the features.

One disadvantage of using this website is it never stands between you and the client as a channel for the payment transfer. They want you and the client to negotiate the price and transfer it outside their site.

    • Nice to see you again here! 🙂

      And very much thanks for understanding the content in depth.

      In my opinion these are largest platforms in the world for translations. Thus obviously they must be support for Indian Languages also.

      In other ways, India is also one of the biggest and developing country. There are many people who have very deep knowledge about French, German etc. SO they can easily utilize these platforms for making quick money online.

      Hope you are satisfy with my answer. Let me know if you have any more doubt..!! 🙂

  4. I’ve been translating for the past 20+ years and, while I managed to find some work on those forums, I found the best way to enter the industry is by approaching as many translation agencies as possible. Most agencies only post job offers on those forums when they need a specialist they don’t already have, or have too much work or a large project and need to find and test more translators. Most of their work though they will assign to translators who are already in their database and have applied and potentially tested. You just gotta go through their process, but it pays in the end.

  5. I was very surprised about this website in that I was sure that a translation website would have someone who knew more advanced levels of English grammar. Now, I know india has been very good with regard to English and that is understandable seeing as it used to be part of the now dead British Empire, but this website needs a professional translator for the explanations it contains.
    I don’t want to nitpick, but I felt it important to mention if other translators want to find work online then coming on here would constitute an error. No one will trust a site where the text needs fixing grammatically.

    Sorry but it had to be said.

  11. I fail to understand why have you skipped the four giant freelance job websites, namely, ELANCE.COM, ODESK.COM, GURU.COM, FREELANCER.COM & TRANSLATOR DIRECTORY.COM

    You have also failed to mention that PROZ.COM, TRANSLATORS’TOWN.COM, TRANSLATORSBASE.COM & TRADUGUIDE.COM invariably charge a hefty membership fee to enable you to bid for jobs.

    The sites mentioned by me either offer free membership or provide additional premium paid membership with special benefits.

    I’m surprised at your simplicity and innocence. On the internet translation job market one has to make lowest possible bids and work like slaves to be able to earn paltry sums. At least this is my personal experience. Wish you all good luck.

    • I doubt that any of above websites will pay through Western Union. But you can individually check the websites and read the FAQ’s that will detail about all the payment options.
