Before accepting a translation or revision job
Read or skim the text before you accept the job. Make sure the assignment is something you’re confident you can do well. There may be large passages that are far outside of your area of expertise.
As a new translator, you need to build up your rating to at least a 6 out of 10. You can do so by taking on test translations. These are not paid assignments. You need to have translated at least 2,000 words in order to activate your rating. After that, you are able to receive paid assignments. Once you’ve translated more than 2,000 words you are free to take on more test translations to further improve your rating, but you don’t have to. If your rating is lower than a 6, you can still do test translations to get it back up again.
