Levels and translation skills
We are creating a new interpretation of the level system. As soon as we have more information, you can read it here.
You gain points for the following:
Accepting a translation assignment: +50 points
For every translated word: +1 point
For every 3 revised words: +1 point
The following will result in points being deducted from your total:
Missing a deadline: - 1500 points
Bad rating from a revisor: -1500 points
The quality rating
As a translator, you need to have a rating of at least 6 out of 10 to be able to receive paid assignments. If your average rating is an 8 or above, you will get more assignments, and you will get them more quickly. If your average rating is an 6 or lower your account will be suspended.
We use ten-point scale (1 to 10) for assessing a translation
1-3: The translation is so bad that it’s completely unusable.
3-5: The translation contains far too many errors to correct in a reasonable amount of time.
6-8: The translation is ready to be sent to the client after some revision.
8-10: The translation had only a few minor issues (if any).
Your rating is determined based on the factors below:
- The number of mistakes you make in your translations
- How well and how honestly you assess and rate other translators if you revise their work
- The ratings you receive from the revisor and from clients
